Dotflac Textured strings and barely tamed percussions dance in a black pool of electronic stochasticity on the verge of collapse.

The two artists behind Stray Dogs invade with their material a fallen church under the accusatory eyes of craggy gargoyles, undertaking a forgotten ritual to awake the gods hidden in the shadows.

The thunder of the polyrhythmic stampedes and the lightning strikes from the cello build a murky atmosphere for those enjoying the smell of moist earth in imaginary wastelands. Favorite track: Rite.

about

Stray Dogs - Wasteland - out on vinyl & digital on sept. 14th 2013 on Icarus Records/Vynilla Vinyl.

Stray Dogs is a Belgian duo consisting of Koenraad Ecker (cello, guitars, electronics) and Frederik Meulyzer (percussion, electronics).
With a long‐standing musical relationship as foundation, they operate on the fringes of electronic, dub, contemporary classical & experimental music, combining an awareness of detail and texture with intense physicality into a sound‐world that needs to be felt as much as heard.

The music on this album was recorded in several periods, starting with the recording of percussion, cello and guitar in a desacralised church in Antwerp, exploiting its different acoustic spaces to the fullest.

The result sounds somewhere between ritual drumming, industrial noise, dub, and
disintegrating orchestras, featuring a wide range of live percussion, prepared acoustic & electric guitars, cello and analog synths. The focal point rests on developing long, non-linear structures, aiming to conjure introspective, dark and meditative states.

An audiovisual performance for Wasteland is currently being developed by Stray Dogs in collaboration with video-artist (and long-standing collaborator) Yannick Jacquet, a founding member of the renowned AntiVJ visual label.

Thank you for listening!
