'Like a grumpy Tom Waits soundtracking A Clockwork Orange, its tales of evil smoulder creepily into your brain stem.'
(New Musical Express on 'Our Moon Is Full')
Featuring guest vocalists Lydia Lunch, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Graham Lewis, Eugene Robinson, Andria Degens and Julie Christmas.
Strings Of Consciousness have united acoustic music and digital technology. Their sound is meant and dreamt to be adventurous and creative. Even if they sculpt and craft their music with a lot of focus on detail and days and days of editing, the most important is to convey emotions, feelings.
Many musicians and singers take part in the collective though the music is composed by Herve Vincenti and Philippe Petit from Marseille. 'From Beyond Love' is the second installment in their trilogy involving various vocalists, whose first effort 'Our Moon Is Full' was internationally acclaimed back in 2007. In the meantime they released a disc of remixes and a collaboration with Angel featuring Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM), Hildur Gudnadottir and Ilpo Väisänen (Pansonic), and took longer to produce this new one because in the meantime Petit was really busy with his solo and collaborative works.
But here they are with an incredible line-up consisting of Julie Christmas (Made Out Of Babies), Andria Degens (Pantaleimon / Current 93), Graham Lewis (Wire), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle) and no less than Lydia Lunch in duo with Eugene Robinson from Oxbow. Andy Diagram (Spaceheads/Pere Ubu) is still contributing his magical trumpet and Alison Chesley (Helen Money) delights with her amplified cello.
