Ninth Desert is the solo project of French artist Cyril Herry that was born out of the ashes of his previous solo project Lecanora in July 2005. Released by the Japanese label Deserted Factory, Herry’s fifth solo album as Ninth Desert and second for Deserted Factory – the first being a collaborative release with Matériel Brouilleur – is limited to 150 hand-numbered copies.
Ainos sees the debut of both Ninth Desert and Matériel Brouilleur on Japanese label Desert Factory and is released as a hand-numbered limited edition of just 150 CDR copies. Ninth Desert is the solo project of French artist Cyril Herry formed in 2005 and has four previous albums under its belt, the fifth being Neyss released around the same time as this album. Although he started using the name as far back as 2006, Jean-Francois Fanton’s project Matériel Brouilleur makes its debut with Ainos.
My Favourite Color is French artist Tracy Lee Summers’ first CD release on the Greek label More Mars and follows three earlier MP3 downloads still available from the LEEP netlabel.
Trying to categorise Summers’ work is a particularly difficult task as it is a mix of many styles and techniques fused to form something new and original. Although largely based around a core of minimal drone work, the combination of instruments highlights the contrast between crisp synthetically generated sounds and the warmth of traditional instruments.
