While Kecap Tuyul’s previous album Tunnel Songs was the result of years of slow work, Trois Clous documents it’s rawer improvisations with voice and prepared guitar. Each track was recorded in one day, 2 of them contain no overdubs at all.
Three outlines of an obscure world, where echoes of ritual industrial, subdued bits of minimalist repetitive noisy rock, feedbacky drone (or is it drony feedback) get mashed in in a halo of lo-fi murkiness…

With Tunnel Songs, Kecap Tuyul delivers his possibly darkest batch of half improvised ritual tunes to date on eg0cide productions. Prepared guitar is still at the core of his music, but voice and melodies are getting more in the foreground than before. The tracks of the album were loosely recorded between 2009 & 2014, and patiently mixed between 2012 & 2015 in various places.

“There is a charming satisfaction in successfully collaborating with someone over the Internet. Two people in different countries sharing ideas, critiquing in constructive ways, producing sounds brought out from hearing what the other has done – those are a few of the joys that come from working with someone who listens. Long distance improvisation in non-real time.
Kecap Tuyul and I spent a good amount of time working on, ultimately, four audio tracks. We were patient. We were willing to work until they were the best we could do.
We hope you are able to get some pleasure from listening to what we did together.”
