Danse Musique Rhône-Alpes

NEWS


BIO

For his second escapade under the Danse Musique Rhône Alpes banner, Loup Gangloff, half of Deux Boules Vanille, digs in solo the furrow of an artisanal dance music made largely from percussions and electronic treatments.

From 2011, Gangloff reconciles his past as a visual artist with his ambitions as a musician, and launches himself and Frédéric Mancini into the elaboration of drums connected to home-made analogue synthesizers allowing to introduce melodies, textures, randomness and errors to the metronomic polyrhythm generated by four hands. Nine years later, the duo Deux Boules Vanille continues the torrid tribal-noise performances without ever losing sight of the desire for research, interaction and experimentation that is at the heart of the project and the raison d’être of its technicality. It is certainly this permanent need for exploration that has recently led Gangloff to reactivate Danse Musique Rhône Alpes, his solo project, and to continue the experimentation of  ‘Alerte à Walibi’, a cassette released in 2016 on the german label MMODEMM.

The Danse Musique Rhône Alpes avatar is a nostalgic tribute to the commercial dance of the 90s but also to the most raw and radical forms of electronic music. A will of Gangloff to salute the regressive immediacy of plastic melodies, silly and addictive while shouting his love of direct and physical rhythmic de/constructions. The amused promise to venerate the codes of dance as much as its evil detractors and to make D.M.R.A borrow from the most oblique trajectories of Chicago house as much as the least practicable ruts of lo-fi techno, and thus to join in the line of these electronic music of collective trance which succeeded in melting the archetypes of the popular club to noisy experiments, offering its most cathartic hours to social dance.

It is thus armed with a singular instrumentarium that D.M.R.A invokes the spirits of these precocious club clichés, and its most radical counter-feet, to resurrect their absurdity, urgency and physicality in raw compositions – between false traditional music and «techno povera» – which seem to respond to a precise rite both in the performance and the recording.

DIY enthusiast, the percussionist has built up a wide range of instruments – from bass toms to marimba, clay pots, wooden cleats and various prepared drum elements – from which he creates rhythmic structures with infinitely contrasting sound textures that he supports with electronic patterns generated by synthesizers and a groovebox. Gangloff uses magnetic tape to fix the result of his sound constructions, which gives them a particular grain and accentuates their raw character; but the cassette four-track is also an instrument in its own right in the compositions since it allows the pitch and dynamics of the captured sounds to be played by modulating the speed of the tape scrolling.

With ‘Point Summoning Software’, Loup Gangloff a.k.a Danse Musique Rhône-Alpes takes a step further the hybrid, cathartically dysfunctional and necessarily rhythmic object created under this avatar over the last few years.

Invited by Brooklyn- based label International Winners, D.M.R.A composes six tracks that are as many episodes, specific, stylistic experiments, mixing the efficiency and tenacity of Bass-music with an acoustic, physical and spatial approach to the textures.

The sonic superimposition of two types of synthesis (subtractive analog and additive digital), and the sparing use of acoustic percussion sampling and voice, make for a highly sensitive ensemble, charged with humor and contradictory emotions, within which a strange coherence is established, a thread stretched in this dematerialized environment, yet very real, palpable, grounded.

A chamber apocalypse, where physicality and perpetual transformation, dance-music and self-destructive club-culture, seem to build naturally, urgently and by their own means.

‘APOPHÉNIES’

This immersive and global experience, ‘Apophénies’, is a video and sound installation in which phantomatic apparitions collide: objects of the everyday, inextricable situations, pseudo-science and approximate beliefs. They constitute scenes that illustrate – and invoke – apophenia, as a special gift, a summoning power and a creative force that organises and helps accept chaos, as a reflex stopping us from assimilating the world as it is presented to us – as it is imposed upon us. Artists Bonella Holloway and Loup Gangloff (D.M.R.A) perform live on three screens, creating a closed space, a light box in which the audience share a rhythmic experience with the performers.
