Sleeping Dogs Lie 04sep09: Yann Novak

Intermission200Label boss Yann Novak’s ‘Intermission’ is a piece of work that accompanied an installation by artist Alex Schweder. The piece, entitled ‘A Sac Of Rooms Three Times A Day’ involved the inflation and deflation of 2 transparent vinyl houses. Yann used recordings of the fans used to inflate the houses and it gives rise to an earthy, pulsating and dense drone flavoured work that subtley shifts in tone over time. I love this end of the electronic drone music style as it has a calming, serene sound that’s contemplative and surprisingly accessible. For fans of labels such as NVO or Line this is a must. Excellent. (
