We’re very excited to be able to welcome the duo collaboration of Philippe Foch and Mathias Delplanque to the Parenthèses roster !

Their collaboration started at the time when Philippe was recording the Taarang album under the Signature Label (Radio France) in 2015.

Since, the pair has continued to explore further Philippe Foch's idea to bring the Taarang (tabla ensemble) to new sound territories, has enjoyed a residency at the GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale,France) and was invited to perform at the Maison de la Radio Ina GRM

Room40 masterhead Lawrence English is currently putting the finishing touches on the album which will see the light of day in the second half of 2017.

Stay tuned...


KEDA 'Hwal'

It's been a long time coming but we're super proud to finally announce the official release date for KEDA (Mathias Delplanque & E'Joung-Ju)'s long awaiting debut album 'Hwal'.

Hwal, meaning ‘bow’ in Korean, was entirely recorded live, then dissected for a whole year by Mathias Delplanque. The result of this long process represents the birth of a project meant to last; to enjoy both on stage and on disc!

Beyond the meeting of two instrumental practices separated by centuries, their creation stands out as an original form, drawing from ambient, dub, blues, African music and noise art. Hypnotic, warm, alternately dancing and meditative, their music is an imaginary folk, a unique and hybrid sonic adventure.

Head to our bandcamp page to listen to Eobu Noale, the first single to emerge until we release more for your earing pleasure.

RE: Residual

In 2010, Parenthèses Records released Peter Knight & Dung Nguyen’s duo collaboration RESIDUAL seeing the pair developing unique approaches to combining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting.

At the start of 2014, Alexis Courtin from PR and Peter Knight discussed their shared desire to give the album a second life and thus asked a carefully chosen list of musicians from France and Australia to present their personal perspectives on Residual. The result is this amazing album that comes as a FREE download, blurring the boundaries between abstract ambient, repetitive experimental music and groove-based textures.

From LENA (aka Mathias Delplanque, France, Bruit Clair Records)’s proto dubby techno, Tilman Robinson’s abstract ambient, Joe Talia’s subtle electronica, Black Sifichi (France)’s unmistakable voice and post-musique concrète edit to Dan West ’s minimal groove, Residual was given the most refined homage.

PS Art Space (PSAS), Parenthèses Records & Listen/Hear Collective are proud to present The Cinematic Scores IV.

Part new media installation, part performance, The Cinematic Scores offer a unique marriage of film and music. Musical ensembles are invited to respond to a selection of short silent films from the public domain by composing an original score for each of the moving pictures. Presented as a cinematic installation within the monumental ground floor of PS Art Space, the experience is mesmerising and deeply poetic. It is cinema like you have not experienced before.

The Cinematic Scores II was nominated in the Fringe World 2013 Awards for Film & Multimedia and the West Australian said:

“The Cinematic Scores is an event that renders splendidly the power of music to shift our interpretive faculties, a challenging but rewarding experience for performers and audience alike.” (Matthew Sykes, The West Australian)

Parentheses Records Welcomes

Posted In: Mathias Delplanque, Zaman Productions, Parentheses Records, E'Joung Ju, Geomungo, Electronic, Ambient, Korea, Coree, France, Australie, duo, KEDA

Mathias Delplanque is an electronic music composer, music critic, author of sound installations, teacher, composer for theater and dance and the founding member of several musical ensembles. He lives and works in Nantes (France) and runs the Bruit Clair label, dedicated to electronic music and sound art.

E'Joung-Ju is a master of the gomoungo, the six strings traditional Korean wooden instrument, which has a history of over 1600 years, used both in court and popular music.

Their collaboration now called KEDA started in 2010 and confronts the ancestral sounds of gomoungo to textures, rhythms and electronic treatments. Beyond the meeting of two instrumental practices separated by centuries, their creation stands out as original, hypnotic, warm, alternately dancing and meditative, drawing on blues, African, Jamaican, ambient and noise influences.

KEDA is currently working on its debut album due for release in October 2014 and will be touring Europe in 2014 courtesy of Zaman Produtions.

Check out KEDA's live excerpt at the Musee du Quai Branly (Paris) HERE.
