NEW LP OUT on Corvo Records: Abstract Musette w/Joke Lanz
"Having worked as a body artist for decades with his most famous project Sudden Infant and in numerous cooperations, noise performer and turntablist Joke Lanz delivers for this duo a physical presence and ironical interludes, while Jonas Kocher, well-known for his work in Contemporary Music, Jazz and Improvised Music, plays deviating melodies, giving a glimpse into French 60’s Musette music, just to shoot in the next second straight to the heart of noise." (Label info)
Recorded at PiedNu in Le Havre by Emmanuel Lalande, mixed and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.
Release date: 13th February 2020. Limited edition of 200 copies.

« Cone of Confusion is a fantastic record, filled with curves and swerves. The trio has a driving frictious nature that is fairly indelible. » TJ Norris, Toneshift (USA)
