tangtype – trajet
Past the dense pressurized medium of Flake Out (2008) the propagating soundscape of Tangtype finds new texture in continuous motion and retrieves substance from fickle displacement. Like all meaningful travel, the destination is at best an anecdote, while the journey remains the experience. Trajet (2015) fuses together years of sound travel experiences from trips, exchanges and places in an odyssey that lasts less than an hour but leaves you with a memory of attendancy. Jean-François Brohée and Julie Cambier of Tangtype made this happen by letting sound data travel, morph, evolve and slowly resolve on their fertile Vienna – Brussels up- downlink. The result will scatter and propagate all around you.
Being enthusiasts of each other’s work for a long time, electronic musician Jean-François Brohée and vocalist Julie Cambier decided to work together and created the project tangtype in 2004. They imagined their collaboration as a tangram, a constant re-combination of elements, making sound / voice experiments evolving, reconstructing themselves from parts to parts, resulting into a redefinition of the traditional songs format.
“…Simultaneously sensual and icy. As far as juxtapositions go then, Tangtype are far more appealing than, say, bananas and vinegar. Ambitious music, deftly executed.” (the online word dump of andrew valentine)
