In 2008, Regis Baillet
and Jerome Chassagnard
decided to pause their project Ab Ovo
and to continue with solo projects. While J. Chassagnard
's first solo album "(F)light" was released on hymen records, R. Baillet
and began to work on "Samdhya".
"Samdhya" (sanscritic for "Twilight") emanates an atmosphere of reassurance and slight melancholy. Soothing soundscapes and complex rhythms form a mixture of ruminant and impulsive tunes whichhypnotize and stimulate at the same time. The well balanced acoustic and electronic instrumentation, in places enriched with voice samples, result in an enthralling, cinematic feel.Diaphane
's aural cosmos has to be explored like an undiscovered continent; those who are curious and open minded will certainly be richly rewarded.
