Xerox Exotique #081: qu’il y a du monde autour de nous – RANDOM IS MY NAME – Teddy Larue – 19.10.23

qu’il y a du monde autour de nous – We are David (random is my name) and Christoph (chance2tlwiwosc, o graceful musing’s burden) and play improvised music with drums, guitar, synthesizer, voice, trumpet, loops. What comes out is a manifold, intimate and exuberant ensemble which makes you forget qu’il y a du monde autour de nous (‚that there is people around us‘).

Gelegentlich liebevoll als Baulärm beschrieben, bevorzugt RANDOM IS MY NAME eher den Vergleich mit Godspeed you black Emperor! Wenn auch als Soloprojekt mit mehr Baulärm.
Mit Gitarre, Synthesizer, Stimme, Kassetten und Effekten entsteht eine dichte, kratzige und melodiös melancholische Musik. 
Teddy Larue is a French artist who splits his time between France and Germany. He graduated with a master’s degree in art and sound from the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin in Mulhouse in 2015. Teddy Larue’s artworks are grounded in a critical exploration of listening. Since 2013, Teddy Larue has been actively involved in the experimental music scene, performing across Europe. Currently, Teddy Larue is focused on creating live ambisonic soundscapes, sonoric interpretations of the digital world, blending elements of the future and the past. He utilizes granular synthesis, field recording, sampling, Eurorack, and computer.
His project Taste of a dream, initially started for Kolorit at The Pool for Die Digital Düsseldorf, later received funding from the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen to be presented at Prague Quadrennial: Sound Kitchen, an architecture and design festival, and then at the Enveloppe Festival in Vilnius. The Enveloppe Festival is a series of events in the Nordic-Baltic region, hosting space music concerts, sound art installations and OTTOsonics in Linz , and later on Acousmonium at Ground Zero in Lyon.
His ambisonic research involves distorted field recordings of the existing ecosystem, questioning the artificial border between sound and materiality. The music piece enables a journey into a speculative dystopian future, emphasizing the interdependance between materality and transcendence. The project aims to create a new world where audiences can experience posthuman future that has already ended.
