Debut album from Papillon, a new project by Discrepant head-honcho, Gonçalo F. Cardoso and with guest appearances by Cédric Stevens and Kink Gong. Taking inspiration from the 1969 French adventure book of the same name, Papillon explores the sonic interzones between dream and nightmare. Through the use of augmented field recordings, Papillon uses the exotic jungle as the starting point to develop a dense and evocative sound where ethnic recordings, impromptu synth jams, modular synthesis, and Foley art effects come together to create a quasi-mystical crackpot mix of esoteric visions, near-death experiences, shamanism, fever deliriums and lucid dreaming. The compositions were constructed from edited acoustic recordings by Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gong, raw and digitally-treated analog modulators by Cédric Stevens, various lo-fi synthesizers by Gonçalo F. Cardoso as well as guest drums by David Naan. All tracks were composed and edited by Gonçalo F. Cardoso in London 2013. Special vinyl one-time pressing of 300 copies. Mastered and cut at Dubplates + Mastering by Christoph Grote-Beverborg.
