There are a lot of artists who divide opinions in our office, and one of them is Yannick Dauby. Dauby is a Frenchman who constructs passages of music around field recordings. He has released an album documenting the Atayal tribe in Taoshan, another of Taipei city and its surroundings, and here’s his second album of frogs recorded in Taiwan.
Well, it’s not just frogs. On this record, Dauby delicately interweaves his amphibian recordings with improvisations on modular synthesiser, blurring the lines between the synthetic tones and the relentless parping and chirruping of the amphibious army which populates the duration of the LP. It’s quite otherworldly and in places quite intense, but other times it’s burblingly therapeutic and strangely captivating. Collectors of unusual sounds will find a few they’ve probably not encountered before here, but if field recording heavy ambience isn’t your bag then you may find it a little hard work. It’s an edition of 250 and comes with three very charming froggy postcards.
