This is Melodium's 7th length album since 2001's Italian debut and appearance in 1999 with 7' releases on underground European labels Static Caravan and Active suspension. This first appearance is when Melodium's music perked the ears of Audio Dregs founders E*Vax. The latter had also released a single on Static Caravan at the time and had gotten a few of these fine pieces of wax in the mail from the UK. When they dropped the needle to preview these records they were immediately taken by the earthy nebula of instrumental electronic sound clouds that rise and descend within Melodium's melancholic compositions. Based in Angers, France Laurent Girard began making music as a kid with piano and acoustic guitar before delving into the world of electronics about a decade ago. With 'Flacana Flacana' Melodium returns to his early tools, creating tracks based mostly around unfiltered guitars and piano. Working with sound a bit like a painter, his work deals with issues of shape and color in a seemingly straightforward manner, creating minute constructs in time and sound. 'The aim of this album was to obtain something pure, simple and emotional, the conception of tracks is very simple, there are very few effects on tracks and all is quite natural.' Laurent Girard.
