May 2018. DESASTRE and collective URSS,CF joined their forces to organise a special event inside an amazing old occupied factory in the suburbs of Paris called Le Satellite, with two live performances and a giant screening on three walls.
Caught direct on an old MC 310 Telefunken cassette recorder, these two pieces of music by Yann Gourdon (France, La Novià) and Ratcharmer (also bass player of Frankreich), despite their own dynamics singularity, are moving in the same direction of high sound density and the powerful whirlwind became more and more intense with the massive natural echo of the venue add to the analog tape compression.
Le Satellite closed since, but we would like to think that theses recordings, released two years exactly after the event, could be a nice tribute in a way.
