TUSK Music Presents

TUSK Festival 2017

October 13-15


Laurent Janneau is an impressively prolific field recordist of various music forms, most especially the music of ethnic minorities of South East Asia. If you’ve got more than a smattering of Sublime Frequencies releases on your shelves, its likely at least some will have Janneau’s fingerprints on them and his website details a mind-boggling catalogue of recordings and collections he’s produced.

But when Janneau replaces his ethnomusicologist hat with his producer’s hat, a different kind of magic happens as he manipulates and interacts with his recordings, editing, re-appropriating, chopping and screwing or just interacting, to create a skewed and often psychedelic music of an ethnicity and nationality that is still yet to be born.
