Un monde sans humains

To accompany this film by Philippe Borrel which describes the slow and often pernicious robotisation of the world we live in, I wanted the music to have a repetitive, robotic feel underscored by a kind of quiet melancholy to offset the brave new world of technology shown in the film. All the instruments in the pieces are played on real instruments but I wanted to ape the kind of feel more associated with ambient or electronic music.

Ela, Dom la Nena’s debut album

Ela, Dom la Nena’s debut album is out on Six Degrees, also Piers’s US label. Ela was produced by Piers and Dom, they recorded the whole album in his home studio in the hills of the Cevennes. Check out ‘No Meu Pais’ taken from the album, the video by Jeremiah.
