about

Attention OVNI ! De quoi surprendre les oreilles habituées aux styles bien délimités. Ici, on laisse libre cours à son inventivité sonore. Une autre dimension, où le son prend forme et peut même couper ou frotter comme du papier de verre. Ce projet bizarre est celui de Philippe Thiphaine, multi-instrumentiste barré, et membre d'Heliogabale. Et l'on retrouve d'ailleurs des points communs entre les deux formations : le goût de l'expérimentation, le travail sur le son jusqu'à l'extrême, et un sens certain de l'absurde.
C'est un monde flottant où nous invite Philippe Thiphaine. Les sons deviennent formes, évocations, une sorte de film coincé dans une bulle, avec des résonances bruitistes voire industrielles. Entre pop, electro, et industriel, voire musique cinématographique, ce sont les divagations d'un fantôme dans une usine qui aurait planté son ordinateur central.

Track Name: the great outdoors
THE GREAT OUTDOORS


Crawling out on all fours
through the streets and the great outdoors
like an animal
whoring after more, more, more

sheened and slicked
and hot-machine quick
we'll make it worth your while
all the while worth your while
Track Name: i am the fence guard
I AM THE FENCE GUARD


do you know the rabbit proof fence number one ?
it's been raised at the beginning of the twentieth century
from north to south, in western Australia
to prevent the rabbits from invading the arable lands
it is now one hundred years old and still exists
four hundred people have been working on it for six years
one thousand eight hundred thirty three kilometers long
i am the fence guard along the demarcation line
foreward and back again, i ride the dromedary
that's a lonely job, from north to south
i am the fence guard along the boundaries
i am the fence guard, climatical boundary, not so effective
against the wild dogs and birds
it's more rainy in the desert
that's an amazing change of climate
i am the fence guard
i am the fence guard
Track Name: inside productions
INSIDE PRODUCTIONS


feathers… fuddle of wings…
insects take place of cells inside brain, insects take place of cells
(no room nor time fot previous walls or roofs)
the buildings now will be inside-productions
with no material proof of existence
(insects take place of cells inside brain, insects take place of cells)
except the light they'll let grow through and over you
through feathers, fuddle of wings…
it's vibrant, it's pouring, it's vibrant
no walls or roofs
buildings now will be inside-productions of sense and cords
it's vibrant and silent
it's tickling in my bones
Track Name: electric love
ELECTRIC LOVE


in a large skull
put inside a drop of warmth
two spoons of dreams
onion
half a litre of fresh thrills
five happy kisses
some garlic
don't forget electric love
according to your convenance in taste
don't forget electric love
and then
add air and water
and put on fire
let it boil
sometimes let it burn
for the rest of your life…
(don't forget electric love)
in a large skull, put inside a drop of warmth and
two or three spoons of dreams and onion
half a litre of fresh thrills
five hundred happy kisses
some garlic
don't forget electric love
according to your taste
put it on fire
let it boil and sometimes let it burn for the rest of your life
now… taste it
Track Name: salo
SALO


Through the march of time
the silence and the crime
through the step of measure
the noise and the fettered pleasure

bonfires burn

In the noisome mix
where the treat is to trick
and the blood runs red
into the avenues and one the bed

bonfires burn

Past the war on everything
and destiny's ring
past the death of reason
in a lasting season

bonfires burn
Track Name: tsunami
TSUNAMI


one by one the hills roll in all directions
above, clouds drift in a deep red sky
are you seeking inner renewal ?
breathe deeply !
this is a tsunami hazard zone
walk with purpose
can you see the army of dead cedar trees
bleached and leafless
they are quite out of place
cedars don't like salt water
what's the debate about the size of earthquakes ?
is it magnitude nine or higher ?
from Cascadia to Japan, across the Pacific ocean
earth is being compressed like a spring
a spring falling down the string, like a rhythm machine
bleached and leafless, like the army of dead cedar trees
what's the debate about the earthquakes ?
is it magnitude nine or higher ?
is it magnitude eight or higher ?
is it magnitude seven or higher ?
earth is being compressed like a big spring
spring falling down the string, like a rhythm machine
are you seeking inner renewal ?
breathe deeply !
this is a tsunami hazard zone
are you seeking inner renewal ?
Track Name: a new kind of clothe
A NEW KIND OF CLOTHE


it's funny, it's vibrant, it's weird
here in between my two hands
there is something
you could think it's a ball
you could see it
it's blue and yellow and pink
and it's warm and so dense
and it's as sparkles in hands and arms
it makes me laugh
i can touch you without touching you
i can draw you a hat or a coat
while opening my hands around you
it's funny and it's free and it's warm as kids' kiss
everyday this is the only feeling i know
'cause everything around has to be from never felt before
never smelt before
never seen or said before
let me draw you
it's a new kind of clothe
it's warm and it'ss weird and it's so warm in between my hands
weird as kids' kis, as kids' hands
it's funny, it's vibrant, let me draw you new clothes, it's warm, it's weird…
it's a new kind of clothes.
Track Name: la piste neuve
LA PISTE NEUVE


(quel ennui)
je suis sur la piste et je danse
(quel ennui cet homme)
je suis sur la piste et je danse
quel ennui cet homme
quel ennui cet homme qui ne pense qu'à son beat
je suis mieux dans la faune à danser sur ces rythmes
je suis sur le dance floor
avec Mona
je suis sur le dance floor
avec mon amie Mona
quel ennui cet homme qui ne pense qu'à son beat
je suis mieux dans la faune à danser sur ces rythmes
nous mêlons nos deux corps
ce soir sur le dance floor
quel ennui cet homme qui ne pense qu'à son beat
je suis mieux dans la faune à danser sur ces rythmes
(ce soir sur le dance floor)
je suis sur le dance floor
je suis sur le dance floor
je suis sur le dance floor
je suis sur la piste et je danse
je suis sur la piste et je danse
j'arrive même à rire de tout ça
je veux juste que tu rendes
ce temps perdu avec toi
tout...ça
(ce soir sur le dance floor)
quel ennui cet homme !
je danse et je chante faux
je suis sur la piste et je danse
dansons !
quel ennui cet homme !
je suis mieux dans la faune à danser sur ces rythmes
(ce soir sur le dance floor)
mangeons !
c'est pas moi qui pleurerai
get up ! get up ! je monte...
cours vite !
je suis mieux dans la faune !
c'est pas moi qui pleurerai
j'arrive même à rire de tout ça
j'arrive même à rire de tout ça
sans regrets de tes bras
