ABOUT THE RELEASE
The ninth edition in the Rev. Lab. series is Laguerre/ Noetinger’s ‘DnT’.
The album ‘DnT’ shows a collaboration that shares pure rock energy and electroacoustic manipulation, amplified drums and distorted tape, feedback and re-injection, live processing and diversion.
A large tape loop was also set up on two supplementary reel-to-reel tape recorders to create a random memory, delayed and unstable, acting like a distorting mirror. This recording is the result of two days’ work at Centre Culturel André Malraux de Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy, France, in July 2018.
The album is dedicated to our friend Dominique Répécaud.

Anthony Laguerre is a versatile musician, composer, improviser and sound engineer.
Growing up listening to noise, rock and improvised music, developed his taste for electronics and sound techniques and led him to become a studio and live-recording engineer.
His work as a musician is based on sound treated as music. The combination of these influences led him to work on audio forms, mixing harmonies and sound materials.
His proclivity for producing developed over the years now allows him to be autonomous in his productions and thus to deepen the research between sounds and music.
Anthony collaborates with G.W. Sok, Jérôme Noetinger, Alexei Borisov, Olivier Mellano, Isabelle Duthoit, Marie Cambois, Michel Doneda, Thimothée Quost, David Merlot…
The graphic design for the packaging is a reference to the experiment of Laguerre and Noetingers drum and tape sound research. The autonomous sounds have moments of separate patterns, isolated in a continuous flux haunting each other towards a leading junction an intersection which exposes new abstract graphic shapes.
