ODALIE, the creative outlet of French composer Sophie Griffon, returns with Derrière l’écran (Reworks), a collection of 5 tracks revisited by befriended french artists from the local electronic music scene, following her sophomore, highly acclaimed EP Derrière l’écran (July 2021 via TELESKOP).
The project’s goal was to broaden the scope of Odalie’s work and turn Derrière l’écran into a collective project that transcended electronic genre boundaries.
The original EP’s partly improvised interplay between cello, modular synthesizer, crystalline pads, and odd rhythms now wears a new cloak of ice-cold synthesis and warm field recording-driven, sketchy tracks, sound art, and a 90’s techno throwback.
Claustinto was entrusted with “Les Hybres.” With his ability of creating fearless subversive poetry he unleashes an inciting riot-like mood out of the original song´s samples.
Noon transformed “Manières d’être vivant” into a deep Neo-classical piece with her versatile textures and by combining analog synths with a beautiful strings-rearrangement.
Machka, a french-colombian multi-instrumentalist, creates a hypnotic and sensitive trance with field recordings, voices, and ghost-like layers on the track “Camille.”
When it comes to Emptone‘s music, terms like “drill’n’bass” and “future jungle” come to mind, but by reworking Odalie’s “Cycles,” he transports us to his world of intoxicated, dusty dry rhythms and powerful bass.
Last but not least, Submarine FM, who work at the intersection of bass music, techno, and ambient music, reworked “Emerod” into a 90’s techno track, complete with beautiful melodies created by his modular rings.
