Pan European Recording was created in 2007 by Arthur Peschaud. Since then, the music label has stood out thanks to its artistic choices, its passion and its radicalness.
As it is linked to the contemporary art world and to different alternative cultures, Pan European Recording didn’t find strength in a particular kind of music but in the unrestrained romantism of some artists making the sacrifice of their life for their art. The label’s work is a work on temporality, a work on being modern without being the modernity’s slave. Pan European Recording’s aim is to make some discs, to enable artists to create, and to leave its mark on history.
On his first album, Marc Melià had explored the possibilities of a mythic synth; on Veus, as if sloughing, he applied the process of sound modification to his own voice, until becoming an android. But an android who sings of love and dreams, a sensitive automaton who plays with the tropes of pop music. Through this device, Marc Melià knowingly seeks poetry and beauty within transgenics, in the search of a universe where one can surf though waves of profoundly moving chord patterns, hear voices unconstrained by range limitations, or dance freely, as in zero gravity.
This tape is the harvest of a year and a half of fallow land sprouts of compositions wild pieces fantasies for the wasteland celebrating the dandelion freedom and untamed grasses.
From the wasteland (De la friche) is a serie of musical studies on urban vegetation a kind of plantasia but more streetwise a modest bouquet for pickers on a stroll.Mostly instrumental it also features a collaboration with Bilou and a poem by Maya de Mondragon.
The cassette will be released on Pan European Recording during autumn and will be on sale at the Foundation’s shop A Rebours.
