An evening around Antwerp’s Hare Akedod cassette label
Behind Les Halles you will find Baptiste Martin, from Brussels. He has been making fragile music with pan flute, field-recordings and daydreamy keyboards since 2012.
After previous releases on the likes of Not Not Fun Records, he comes to AB Salon to present his latest release on the cassette label Hare Akedod.
Baptiste on his latest release:
Hare Akedod, the antwerp-based label of David Edren (DSR Lines) and Bent Von Bent (Ōgon Batto), is proud to present Les Halles' Golden Hour a limited edition C24 cassette, the labels 11th release.
About the album:
'Golden Hour I-VI, was made on the computer, between Lyon and Paris in late 2018. I made dozens of patches with a modeling synth and tried to somehow recreate sounds of acoustic instruments, using happy accidents and randomness. Second side, Golden Hour VII, is a 12-minute piece that I started to compose during a week-long residency at Silo in Cannes-et-Clairan, South of France, September 2018. On site was a large concrete silo where the sound endlessly twirls and spins around. I composed the piece creating samples of different synths and various digital tools playing with the reverb. End of the afternoon after the working sessions, it was nice to go up the silo, sip wine and contemplate the golden hour with the co-residents.' B.Martin
