The Dead Mauriacs: field recordings, real and fake piano, files, computer, music.

The Dead Mauriacs’ music is a journey into post-industrial landscapes, non-sensical hörspiel, concrete exotica, Ballardian dystopia: a joyful nightmare. It is Olivier Prieur’s art and music project – primarily a solo act, but occasionally a collective with the addition of nice and lovely people such as Susan Matthews, Vincent Domeyne, Thorsten Soltau, Jan Warnke and Michael Esposito – with recent and forthcoming releases on Discrepant, NPH and Geräuschmanufaktur.


The Wire (UK):

Tape collages, piano music and computer assemblages by a flexible organisation helmed by French polymath Olivier Prieur. They’ve got many releases available, and the mood on this one has a lazy noir jazzoid quality that feels like it could’ve been used as an alternate soundtrack to ‘A Touch of Evil’. A mix of easy listening and difficult listening, its bubbling boho refinements are difficult to resist. Especially after a few strong cocktails.
