La Tène Short Info

Alexis Degrenier: hurdy-gurdy
Cyril Bondi: percussions
d'incise: electronic, harmonium

“They bolster their acoustic drones with subliminal, pulsing electronics and elongate their appropriated rhythms with implacable repetitions inspired by minimalists and eccentrics. Each of the album’s two pieces spans an album side but feels like it could go on all night. La Tène’s music sounds medieval and European, but it’s as trance inducing as something you’d hear at a powwow.”
Bill Meyer in the Chicago Reader

Their music, drones played with traditional and acoustic instruments is an invitation to the dance frantically, leading to euphoria or trance.
