Alexis Nemtchenko (Merovee) is a music composer and sound artist from Lyon, France. His work interrogates our acoustic environment, raising the issue of its preservation and our impact on it. A passionate field-recordist he seeks poetry in every sound texture: in rural and urban settings, exotic and everyday environments alike. He composes using the emotions experienced in the field, and through inspirations in the recordings themselves, mixing these elements with synth and distortion, adding traditional instruments and archival documents. The listener is situated then in an experimental soundscape of unusual textures and hallucinatory spaces that ruptures perceptions of time, and rhythm.
