Category: LES GRACIÉS (DUO)

Tandem franco-américain, Les Graciés naissent en 2012 de la rencontre de deux âmes sœurs musicales, Eric Douglas Porter (aka Afrikan Sciences) et Gaël Segalen (aka IhearU).
Leur œuvre se définit comme une conversation sensible, libre de toute grille temporelle, explorant les frontières et tentant de capturer des moments d’éternité.
//
Les Graciés are the exploratory sound art/dance duo Afrikan Sciences (PAN/Deepblak) & Gaël Segalen (Erratum Musical),
who, after four years of recording together, are due to issue their debut LP with Edinburgh’s Firecracker at the height of summer.

Their label describe the eponymous entrance as a “polyrhythmic and hypnotic groove, experimental beats free of tempo and meter”, which aptly sums up their juncture of free-roaming percussion, field recordings and star-gazing synthesisers and neatly unites their divergent personal praxis in sound art and jazz-techno spheres.
Les Graciés follows Afrikan Sciences’ highly acclaimed Circuitous, which attracted widespread attention in 2014,
and marks out the 2nd LP of the year for sound artist Gaël Segalen (a.k.a. IhearU) under this name;
yet it should properly count as the first outpost on a promising new adventure into uncharted new terrain.

Les Graciés is a French-American tandem of a brother & a sister in sound, a evident and karmic encounter of free spirit music makers in full sympathy with the unknown.
Les Graciés is the conjunction of Eric Douglas Porter (Afrikan Sciences) and Gaël Segalen (IhearU)
Their music explodes the boundaries and reunites from segmented forms. It is naturally scientific, complex with feeling, innovative, other-worldly, captivating and effective,
repetitive and organic, a wild and mad process in an attempt to capture a moment of eternity.
Defined as free form and expansive, from recognizable concrete elements of everyday life to an unifying abstraction, improvisations, mutations, polyrhythmic and hypnotic groove, experimental beats free of tempo and meter.
