[STORY] A new Memory Layer…

   

Can you walk the same path or bathe in the same water twice ?



The Memory Layers was all about revisiting the past, on how memories and present life overlay, intertwine and interact, modefying your actual self. Worked on over the course of a couple of years, the album eventually came out in 2015.



Sometimes critiziced for being too conceptual, orchestrated and over-thought, I guess this album got the least attention of the 4 Redeye / Thisis Redeye albums, and a couple boxes of unsold records still lay around in the garage somewhere… But still, being so drenched in Texas mystique (imagined, written and recorded between Houston, Denton and Austin) and in Lucile Vallez’s violins, this collection of songs still resonates (to me) as a sincere and pretty accurate mind map of my early 2010s personal and musical obsessions.



Anyway, recently working on a cyan (color of the record’s cover) cardstock paper for a poster job, I remebered the boxes, stranded in the garage, found a bunch of CD copies and 19 unsold vinyl copies of the record. The next day, I was screen printing an alternate cover for the record, with a collection of drawings made back in the days of the writing process. And hey, put the records back up for sale on the bandcamp, as a funny echo to the 2015 release…



Memories, glimpses from the past, shaping the present…



Can you really walk the same path twice ?

Map to a Soundtrack – WALDEN, now available !

   

New 17′ instrumental music now available to stream and download for FREE on the band’s Bandcamp ! Audio K7s with original artwork also available (only available physical format). Read the full story below !



Inspired by HD Thoreau’s book, this imaginary soundtrack is a personal sonic interpretation of this ecological, metaphysical and free-thinking manifesto.

Reading the book, as I pictured myself lost in the outdoors, living in the forests of the great Northeast, in an isolated cabin, near a lake, WALDEN is the soundtrack that started playing in my head. A comforting companion to a solitary life, away from all the fuss, connected to Nature, amongst the trees and wildlife.

Fishing, seeds growing, plants blooming, trees creaking, animals leaping, birds flying, bugs harvesting, leaves rustling, the wind blowing, rain falling, snow melting, ice cracking, are all part of this OST to a movie that only exists in my (and now hopefully your) imagination.
Meditative, organic, all natural, this piece of music was put together on an analog Fostex M80 reel to reel 8 Track, on a single LPR35 tape, with all analog instruments, and found its way to an audio cassette tape. All flaws and parasite noises were left unharmed and unfiltered, hopefully giving it texture, sincerity and richness, as grown from the earth.

Immerse yourself. Listen to these sounds when working at home, as a podcast on your daily commute, for your morning run, daydreaming next to the fireplace or on a front porch star gazing.
Listen. Breath. Meditate. Dream. Allow your spirit to wander.

Personnel :
All instruments, recording and mixing by Guillaume Fresneau (www.guillaumefresneau.com)

Themes (Tracklist) :
A Bridge to the Moon / Where I Lived and What I Lived for / Higher Laws / The Ponds / A Trout in the Milk / Brute Neighbors / Nut Brook Meadow / Dead Trees Love the Fire
