Mimetic Mute is the solo project of Jérôme
Soudan, better known as drummer and percussionist of the superb French
band Von Magnet and Column One. At the beginning he wanted to release a
double album, and as two labels contacted it at the same period for the
release of an album each, this is how " Positive " is appeared on Moloko+
and " Negative " on Prikosnovénie.Both of them are of electronic
obedience, dark, electric and atmospheric. Jérôme Soudan has
a long musical past, having collaborated as much to the contemporary music
development (GRM) that to the composition of dance music for the Dutch
dance company NDTII. After having written a thesis on the industrial music
at the university of Lyon in 1993, he contributed to the diffusion of this
music in organizing some festivals in France and in creating a vast network
of musicians in Europe, from Paris to Berlin, where he lives today. "Positive"
is a mixture of electronic manipulations , with various samples, orchestrated
with different film samplings (Nébuleux) sounding like industrial
lullabies (Open Me), tinted of lunar techno (Filter You, Cocksure). The
disturbing " Positive " that gives its name to the album, possess some
reminiscences of Von Magnet.There's even a long ambient track , the majestic
" Deutlich ". Like in all his collaborations, Jérôme Soudan
is touched by the grace for a real success.
A very beautiful album from one of the most active representatives of the European industrial scene.
Highly recommended !
