NU FORRM opens with SHIMMER a 17mn sinuous sonic adventure that figures as the the soundscape of his ongoing Venice Biennale installation - giving the tone to a free form experiment overlapping genres and formats. FarmanFarmaian leads the project with a signature vintage sound on electric guitar - charging the load with tribal riffs and deep ambient distortion seeking connections with the Gnawa of Essaouira and Sub-Saharian desert rock ( A NOMAD PRAYER ) while tripping poetic vocal drops as shamanistic dreamscapes ( HIDING PLACE, JOL ) along spiritual visions ( GATES OF TURAN ) and a personal fireplace ballad, EMBERS ATONE .
Recorded by Spanish Producer Jose Maria Sagrista in the Winter-Spring of 2021-2022 at the Punta Paloma Studios Tarifa Spain, the album features master Tabla - Flute player Axl Narayana, ex-Playground Parisian Producer-Drummer Philippe Deshaies and the words of San Francisco Beat Poet Edward D. Baker.
