Didier Laloy is back with a new album and a new creation: Belem & The MeKanics, a meeting between his famous Belem duo (with cellist Kathy Adam) and the mechanized instruments of the contemporary composer Walter Hus.
After having toured Europe with Belem, Didier Laloy met composer Walter Hus (co-founder in the 1980s avant-garde group Maximalist whose LP was one of the first references of the Igloo label) and achieved one of his dreams: to play with musical mechanized instruments while extending the adventure of the duo.
Laloy reinvents the universe of the duo in contact with the creative madness of Walter Hus and his ‘Decap’ mechanical instruments, a complete 15-piece orchestra that consists of acoustic organs, accordions and autonomous percussion instruments controlled by a computer and music software to generate an acoustic, organic sound.
Let yourself be carried away by this unusual music, somewhere between popular, contemporary music and a soundtrack with echoes of Fellini.
At times a sweet milky way of sounds, sometimes vaguely philharmonic while bursting into the four corners of our imaginations, Belem & The MeKanics is an extraordinary experience that immerses the listener in a majestic sound whirlpool!
