David Fenech – Mountains of night

Jelodanti is happy to present Mountains Of Night, David Fenech’s third solo album, following Grand Huit (2000) and Polochon Battle (2007). Somewhere between musique concrète and pop, between sound poetry and industrial music, this new recording has been constructed as a musical piece that develops over time, forming a truly unique listening experience. Lasting 40 minutes, it is split into two movements, forming two well balanced sides on a vinyl record. Don’t miss it if you are into Jim O’Rourke, Mimir, H.N.A.S, Nurse with wound or Faust.

The composer himself considers this album to be his most personal to date, and the first in his discography that clearly echoes his personal life. Mountains of night” is an evocation of his lost childhood, with its troubles, traumas and search for a peaceful place. It slowly moves from a disturbed atmosphere to a more peaceful and harmonious one. A quest for paradise. The title was inspired by David’s son who said to him one day, as evening fell over the Alps near Grenoble… “Look! The mountains are full of night!” Like the frightening side of something beautiful, like a perfect blend of innocence and darkness.

We have the great privilege of offering you this album in “Art Edition” format, with a limited series of unique handmade covers by the famous French artist Muriel Rodolosse. Each artwork is distinct and different from the others, adding a perfect visual counterpoint to the music. These magnificent covers bring a little of their strange beauty and ever changing variety. Don’t miss the chance to have your pick!

Instruments : piano, electric guitar, percussion, snare drum, voice, electric bass, organ, sequencer, tape edits, field recordings, home made electronics, gamelan, sampler, flutes, shaker, bells, midi guitar, synthesizer.
