Peter Van Hoesen presents new alias Maison Attali
New ideas coming from one of techno’s tastemakers.
The Belgian musician delivers the debut LP for his new moniker Maison Attali. The album, titled ‘Improvisations on an Elka Synthex’, features live recordings of Peter manually decoding the legendary eighties synthesizer. Recorded in his studio in one afternoon, without the addition of any effects, Peter went into full experimental mode racking up several hours of material. Later he refined the recordings into 6 improvisations showcasing his ‘interpretation of the Elka’s unique character.’
Across the 31 minute voyage into the 8‑voice analog polyphonic synthesizer Peter walks through ‘Growling resonances, unusual pitch movements, squelchy oscillator modulations and hissing potentiometers’. It’s raw to the bone and equally as unpredictable which is sure to get the analog purists heads turning. Tap into this one below.
