hinahgift014 - LunDi "Cendres ascendantes"

hinahgift014 - LunDi

"Cendres ascendantes"

LunDi is the solo project of Claude-Marin Herbert, a young man deeply inspired by the delicate music of pop heroes such as Mark Hollis and the Nits. It is no surprise that this project reminds us of a band like Bed (who is quite undeniably influenced by Mark Hollis), yet with a noteworthy difference: Claude-Marin's lyrics are in (beautiful) French. "Cendres ascendantes" is his debut recording under the name LunDi, and we do hope that this gift will make you want to hear more - for instance "Mobiles/motifs", forthcoming on hinah.

hinahgift014 - LunDi "Cendres ascendantes"
"One morning of January 2004, to record "Cendres ascendantes", I broke into the basement of the Opéra Bastille (with the complicity of a friend of mine, a sound engineer). There I found a grand piano, microphones and a mixing table. I absolutely wanted everyone to hear that this piano was made of long strings, hammers, and felt. As we had little time, we recorded the piano and vocals at the same time, live.
After the three songs that I first intended to record ("La rivière", "Cendres ascendantes", and "Une autre vie"), we have added "Le partage des eaux" and "La tectonique des plaques". Obviously evocative titles... Are landscapes states of mind? And reversely."
