Boomkat Product Review:
Super chewy confections for the harder-to-please electronic music connoisseur, Nicolas Bernier gives your lugs and brain something to really grapple with in Transfert/Futur, pulling out 18 minutes of brittle and mercurial post techno tones in polymetric structure recalling everyone from CoH to Gabor Lazar and rkss in Transfert (299 792 458 m/s), and with more emphasis on soured discord and spaced out, pointillist glitches in Synthèse (299 792 458m/s) comparable with Ryoji Ikeda or Cameron Shafli.
"Sound artist/composer/performer Nicolas Bernier derives from his previous frequencies project with an astounding new series — 299 792 458 m/s — and a first album on Acte!
Transfert/Futur is marking a shift from Nicolas Bernier’s rather reductionist approach of the previous series to a more expressive and colourful aesthetic. Drawing from science fiction, sound textures are artificialized within abundance of synthesizers, superimposed to create exceptionally organic compositions. In a very contemporary attitude, compositionnal processes are made obvious to the listener, while the sounds themselves are veritable ear candy.
LIYL complex rythmic patterns, lush synthetic environnements and a sci-fi inspired design. "
