Art & Technique
As an emblematic figure of the French alternative scene of the 70s and 80s, Bernard Filipetti has been heating up his analog synthesizers’ circuits within the band Camizole along with Dominique Grimaud, and with his solo project Art & Technique. Raw, industrial, and without concession, Bernard’s recordings of that time resonate among those of a new generation of mavericks, whom he discovers with enthusiasm at the heart of the Parisian musical network of Rue des Gardes. He then surrounds himself with Mathieu Habig, the energetic drummer of Guili Guili Goulag and Spoliature, to fire up his machines during the Merguez Electroniques festival in June 2017. This memorable concert is the origin of the present cassette, born from the spontaneous invitation of the Da ! Heard It label and the arrival of Ravi Shardja, (GOL Couloir Gang) into this new formula.
