“Les fascinantes explorations électriques et abrasives, soutenues, clairvoyantes, stridentes et abouties de la passionnante rencontre entre un Revox plus d’autres attirails électroniques et une guitare totalement modifiée/remodelée sonnant plus comme une platine/tourne-disque incendiaire, générant coupures, lourdes décharges électriques, virages brusques, etc… Un excellent travail explorant des insoupçonnés nouveaux terrains de jeux sonores chahutés et irréguliers par un très très bon duo, témoins actifs, parfaitement virulents, volubiles et symptomatiques de l’excitante nouvelle scène improvisé nerveuse européenne.” (Sixto/Cave12)

“it was a shock to receive an mp3 expert and proposal from mimmo & olivier almost two months ago asking whether noise below is interested in issuing a tape for the upcoming mini tour in june.
being a lovely free musics duo and as am enjoying a lot their interaction between olivier’s guitar and pickups and sec_’s revox / no input mixer i couldn’t say no to such a challenge.
2 short tracks of intense harsh free improv / electroacoustics sounds, what else do you need?
enjoy!” Nicolas (Absurd/noise-below)


Live at Madame Claude le 15 août 2011 à Berlin.
