Penultimate Press presents the first release in a three-part series based around the four field-recording-based works made between 1990 and 1994 by the legendary French act Étant Donnés (brothers Eric and Marc Hurtado, born 1959 and 1962 respectively in Rabat, Morocco).
“Aurore” shares some convulsive movements that establish a link with Étant Donnés‘ earlier works, for instance that exuding scream, worthy of the one Antonin Artaud uttered in his legendary 1947 radio program “Pour en finir avec le jugement de Dieu”. Eric and Marc Hurtado succeed in achieving what many sages consider to be the very purpose of magical art: to create one’s own ritual and, being one’s own referent, to become a vibrating point in the cosmos and be receptacle for natural energy, in the heat of the sun in an attempt to merge with the Whole.
“Aurore” comes remastered and repackaged in a high-gloss sleeve with fully printed high-gloss inner sleeve, in a limited edition of 500 copies. It remains an extreme and beautiful sonic journey sitting outside of time.
