“Autoportait” is one of the masterpiece of Brume, this opus start a new serie of french old school industrial and post-industrial allbums : “Collection Des Musiques Industrielles et Post-industrielles de France” ( Industrial and Post-industrial Music Collection From France ).
“Emergency and compression … it is the climate in which this 50-minute material was recorded. Make a “Self-Portrait” is not nothing! … This is a sensitive exercise, deep, must find the note, must sustain his own honesty … well so do not crash!
This project in 1990 necessity ten hours! (Execution, post production & mastering …). I privileged a direct and rapid expression so essential to squirt! But I confess some “literary verbages” essential in my view have been borrowed. It’s almost live as the set was “sloppy” in just a day and a night!
We therefore there’s practically raw material, thick, rusty metal (Beware Tetanus ears …!), Performed without concession and without cerebral onanism … but only by pure nihilism!” C. Renou, Jan. 2017
