Akusmi – Fleeting Future (Tonal Union, LP/digital)

Pascal Bideau was born in France and lives in London, but he recorded his debut album under the name Akusmi in Berlin and enlisted support from the Free Scene: drummer and electronic musician Daniel Brandt, trombonist Florian Jucker and saxophonist Ruth Velten were on board to put their stamp on »Fleeting Future«. Over eight pieces, they explore the intersections of (post-)minimal music, fourth-world concepts, electronic sounds and cosmic-avant-garde jazz together with the composer.
