AUN 'Fiat Lux' LP
AUN's music as always suggested forays into other dimensions, be it to imaginary worlds, industrial wastelands, through space and time, or via mind altered states. From the ominous dystopian artwork, of a city being drained of its energy by some mysterious black hole, to the first notes of the title track "Fiat Lux" we are once again transported on AUN's otherworldly travelling path. Ever since the space industrial and power electronics of AUN's previous Cyclic Law cult release "Black Pyramid", the world has become even more sinister, but in contrast, "Fiat Lux" exudes even more of AUN's melancholic hopefulness. The disintegrating chords and densely textured waves, anchored by a left field industrial pulse, invoke occult drug enhanced, future psychedelia. Created in part in their Montreal studio, these tracks were extensively performed live, prior to recording, and refined while on tour breaks in Montpellier, Barcelona and Tokyo. The energy of these cities is definitely at work in these recordings, which also features a French connection of experimental heavy hitters: Witxes, Frédéric D. Oberland and Philippe Petit have helped round out Dumais and Leblanc' arsenal. FIAT LUX: Let there be light, from light will come darkness.
