On his new album BLACK NOISE, Pantha Du Prince, who lives in Berlin and Paris, claims: music slumbers in all matter; any sound, even silence, is already music
. The mission, then, must be to render audible what is unheard and unheard of: black noise, a frequency that is inaudible to man. Black noise often presages natural disasters, earthquakes or floods; only some animals perceive this “calm before the storm.” Black noise is something archaic and earthy. The music on Black Noise balances precariously on the slippery threshold between art and nature, between techno and folklore, which lends it a certain spectral and intangible aspect.
Black Noise also features a couple of special guests - Noah Lennox of Animal Collective sings on “Stick to my side” and Tyler Pope of !!! and LCD Soundsystem plays bass on “The Splendour”. The Splendour is the first single to be released from the album .
