COSMO 003 LP
Double Long Playing Record
Peau froide, léger soleil is the result of a three-year recording process initiated by Mika Vainio and Franck Vigroux after a series of shared live experiences, beginning with a show in Paris in 2012. Their collaboration is an exercise in sensitive intensity, drifting through the whole space between minimalist meditations and maximalist kinetics. Vainio's signature brutalist production resonates throughout the album, constructing a psychic scenario for Vigroux's researches in spatial abstraction and tonal radicalism.
Densely built through free-from structural limitation, this intense nine-track album is the third installment in the catalog of Berlin-based label Cosmo Rhythmatic, and acts as new chapter in the label's construction of an uncompromising sonic identity. Mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. Lacquer cut at D&M, Berlin. Front cover photograph by Umut Ungan. Back cover photograph by Diego Jr.
