German producer CHRISTOPH DE BABALON - whose excellent 1998 album If You’re Into It, I’m Out of It was recently reissued to wider audiences - joins forces with the Polish audiovisual duo WIDT to present TEYAS. This new work will also be released as an album for Bocian Records combining ambient elements, dramatic vocals and elements of drum & bass.
An audiovisual collaboration of two sisters - Antonina Nowacka (voice/processing) and Bogumiła Piotrowska (live visuals). Works of duo appear as oneiric visions built up with a use of abstract, operatic vocalization, flowing in the jungle of psychedelic visuals, created in a real time from scratch with complex forms of video feedback. An unique transgressive phenomenon oscillating between concert, performance, installation and video art. WIDT had released two audiovisual albums: POINT#3 VHS (2015, Pointless Geometry) and WIDT cd/dvd (2016, Zoharum), both appreciated by the renowned british magazine The Quietus. The duo had performed - among others - on the avant-garde festival KRAAK in Brussels, in the legendary Cafe OTO in London, in the unique silent green Kulturquartier in Berlin, on the prestigious festival Przemiany in the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw. In September 2016 they accomplished their first UK tour.
Christoph de Babalon is a German record producer and DJ, best known for his work on Alec Empire's label Digital Hardcore Recordings. He also is the co-founder of the label Cross Fade Enter Tainment (CFET).
“Heard in the context of today's anal-retentive production values, the reissued LP's rancid sound is exceptionally evocative. "My Confession"'s drones conjure images of an abandoned cargo ship drifting slowly through foggy seas. The effects stalking the background of "Water" approximate a pod of whales singing from the bottom of the ocean. As ever, the Amens and Apaches are bit-crushed into spinning prisms, interlocking like compacted cars in a scrapyard.” – Redient Advisor on If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It
