about

Philippe Lamy is a Toulouse, France based sound artist and painter originally from Casablanca, Morocco. He began recording in 2005 and has since had material release through labels such as Dronarivm, Wist Records and Taalem as well as netlabel work through the likes of Audio Gourmet and Nowacki. He has also collaborated with artists such as Pleq, Darius Ciuta and Philippe Neau.

Philippe’s approach to sound is unmistakable: he uses a wealth of different sound textures and techniques to build layers of environmental sound. Field recordings, software instruments and voices are processed, layered, processed and then layered again to create a collage not dissimilar to the approach he takes with painting. Philippe views sound recordings as materials and sets about building and transforming them into new objects of living matter.

The resulting sound environment you’ll hear in ‘Inner Stretch’ is clearly minimal, yet beneath the strong, deep and curious sounds lies a great complexity through many ‘coats’. The tracks do not hang suspended as a particular sound is stretched and repeated. Instead, Philippe has created something with great variety and unpredictability, decorated with many strokes of sonic material. One moment you may only be able to detect a few pops and rumbles of bass frequencies but before long, a deep drone will creep into view, if only for a brief period of time. Philippe approaches his work with sound just as he would with paint: rules and random, strength and lightness, layers and layers, light and silence, destruction and creation, always trying, again and again.
