Sunday 8th December, MONOM will present the first of a new long form presentation and platform for spatial sound exploration.
AMBIENT 001: The first edition in the series, will present a 6- hour deconstructed DJ set in 4DSOUND by Eric Cloutier followed by by a kinematic sound sculpture created for the 4DSOUND system by Aleksi Perälä.
We invite you on a journey through sonic worlds, to traverse sounds around the apparent, sitting between, fluctuating, floating within the surreal and the serene out of the cold into the warm studio for a tea, to lay resplendent in the soft embrace of our blankets within an expansive space where silence becomes the presence of everything. An environment free from unnecessary noise where the only sounds present are the ones intended for your pleasure.
SCHEDULE & TICKETS
14:00 - 20:00 Eric Cloutier
20:00 - 21:00 Aleksi Perälä
Born in Finland in 1976, Aleksi Perälä has been an independent producer and a electronic music composer for over 20 years. His latest album is the first LP release for the Clone Basement Series, exploring the spiritual side of techno with the Colundi Sequence- showcasing the multiplicity of emotions and conditions as defined through the Colundi Scales; 128 resonant frequencies chosen via experimentation and philosophy, each relating to a specific human bio-resonance, psychology, traditional mysticism or belief, which does you good whether you like it or not…
Cloutier’s nature - one of zeal and infatuation towards the warm, dubby, hypnotic house and techno that has come to characterize his sound as well as his ability to bridge the gap between dance music’s past and its future.
Eric Cloutier’s standards are representative of the pre-social media craze and arguably the old adage of letting music speak for itself. Cloutier’s twenty-plus year commitment has been built upon his integrity as a DJ and authority as a selector. A self-described "record digging psychopath," one only has to refer to his mix of highly sought after cuts from Driftwood Records to see the lengths Cloutier will go to in order to procure the perfect selection. This is truly Cloutier’s nature - one of zeal and infatuation towards the warm, dubby, hypnotic house and techno that has come to characterize his sound as well as his masterful ability to bridge the gap between dance music’s past and its future.
An exception to the norm, Cloutier is not one to capitalize on his Detroit origins. Moving to New York in his 20’s, he became a regular face at The Bunker where he began to further define his innate style of body orientated music. Now situated in Berlin, where he often shows up behind the decks of niche alcoves as well as the world’s best clubs, Cloutier’s reputation as an unequivocal, dexterous force is increasingly becoming one of note. His talents as a producer have also been growing of late, with the establishment of his own imprint Palinoia, Greek for “the obsessive repetition of an act until it is perfected or mastered.” The label has become the new home and optimization for Cloutier’s evolving undertakings. Through Palinoia, Cloutier manages to further synthesize slick, dubby club music to slide into his DJ sets as well as feature lesser known talent he's discovered. He’s a DJ for whom quality - above all else - is the watchword.
