David Fenech, Polochon Battle
Catalog reference number: IPS 1007.
CD release date: October, 2007.
"I'm a fan of this movie by jean vigo called zero de conduite,
and i often think of the final scene, this huge pillow fight
which is anarchic and soft, violent and smooth at the same
time. it's the same feeling i'm trying to express in my own
music. polochon battle (pillow fight in frenglish) has developed
around this idea of happy conflict between the different tracks
of the album, as well as a kind of joust between the musicians
involved, a fight between acoustic sounds and their electronic
mirror" david fenech.
For his second album, david fenech has invited some friends
to compose with and against him, opening his musical pieces
to the baroque instrumentations of the japanese musician shugo
tokumaru, to the polyrhythmic electro glitches of the
german felix kubin, to the perverse ambiguity of falter
bramnk's sampler, to the toy orchestra of klimperei,
to the piano melodies of toog.
Playing many unexpected instruments, david fenech shows no
limit in his inspiration: ukulele, prepared guitar, toy piano,
kitchen drums, bells, computer and accordion come together
joyfully. and we can also hear his signature: his strange
vocals, sounding like speaking in tongues and like no other
(alaeeeygh, friday market reggae).
Inpolysons is proud to release this hybrid album, a little
bit outside the borders and with a very personal imaginary
world. somewhere between pop and electronic music, between
punk rock and new music. come on, feel free to bring your
pillow and enjoy the fight !
With special guests : felix kubin, shugo tokumaru, klimperei,
