When asked by French photographer Mathieu Drouet to contribute a track to a contemporary art project for his “Grande Plage” June 2014 exhibition, French-Bulgarian Progressive Extreme Metal entity WE ALL DIE (laughing) created an exclusive instrumental piece based on their debut full-length, Thoughtscanning. The piece follows the theme of the album’s single track, “Thoughtscan.”
The exhibition is based on pieces from Drouet’s collection that he considers worth being used as cover artwork. The series will feature twelve pieces, each with a song written and recorded exclusively for the exhibition. Drouet will press a single copy 12-inch LP with one of these pictures as artwork, the band’s contribution and an experimental audio rendition of the photography’s digital file’s data, making this unique ambient noise track the “sound of the picture.”
Teaming with Drouet, Kaotoxin will proudly digitally release this new EP on August 12. Titled Tentoonstelling (“exhibition” in Dutch), the two track EP will feature a 13:49 long (date pun intended!) piano Jazz rendition of “Thoughtscanning” titled “Variation on the Scanning of Thoughts,” while the second track will be Drouet’s experimental audio rendition of the front artwork’s photography.
- We All Die (laughing): “Variation on the Scanning of Thoughts”
- Mathieu Drouet: “Grande Plage (op. #1, movement #1): le noir”
Tentoonstelling was mixed and mastered at HHStudio by Déhà (C.O.A.G., Descent Into Despair…), with artwork by Mathieu Drouet and layout by Déhà.
