Et Le Son
Follet is a solo project of Einzeleinheit label founder Tobias "Tocafi"
Fischer who also forms half of electronic duo Suneaters and is a member
of the ever-changing live line-up of Aalfang mit Pferdekopf. "Toi
Et Le Son" is Fischer's debut full length release as Feu Follet and
follows a very limited split release entitled Cuba December on German
Consisting of just two tracks, both of which clock in at just over 18
minutes, "Toi Et Le Son" hints at its ambient soundscape content
through the frozen landscape depicted in its artwork. The first of the
tracks, 'Toi et le son', is based largely around undulating tones
and subtle shifts in sound. The low drones and drifting textures conjure
images of wide open spaces and featureless landscapes but far from being
dark and desolate, the scenery is magnificent and inspiring. This is the
type of music that soothes and relaxes if given the chance to become the
primary focus of your listening experience. It is like travelling through
an open expanse of land with the gentle hum of massive engines guiding
your way. 'Larme d'Heike' adopts a different direction, this
time exhibiting a more anxious sense of urgency or even desperation. The
low sweeping drones are still there but a more rhythmic mechanical theme
dominates. It‚s almost as though focus has switched from admiring
the landscape outside to the low mechanical throb of the dark engine room.
The somehow comforting hum of the engine eventually replaces the tense
anxiety of the opening minutes of the track, only to return by the end
of the track.
Fischer's music can be used as either low background noise or a more intense
listening experience where everything else is shut off and the music becomes
the focal point. His music will send images flashing through your mind
and build scenes purely through its ability to capture your imagination
and absorb you into it. Future Feu Follet releases look very promising
on the strength of this release.
