NP – Couleur ASCII


On Philippe Nore’s third album for Petcord, Couleur ASCII, there are both manic rhythmic structures of stuttering looping noise and, as a sharp contrast, elegiac drones that dissolve any notion of time. This creates some kind of ambiguity, a swing reaching out to either extreme of the spectrum, sometimes even unexpectedly switching its state during an ongoing exposition. Sufficiently anonymised as hexadecimal entities, each of these titles may represent a colour code with its associated emotional qualities or associations, each of them establishing a microcosm of their own.
