about

Someone is gently knocking on metal; a dog is barking in the distance; far away, an Arabic-sounding voice, maybe a muezzin’s, can be heard; insects buzz over a background of human activity.

With his microphones, Emmanuel Mieville captures moments of reality in exotic lands (Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Malaysia). Then, he edits these field recordings with a computer to create sound compositions driven by the paradox between natural forces (see the chunk of Paradise photographed inside the booklet) and human footprint (the city skyline featured on the cover).

Paris-born composer Emmanuel Mieville learned sound engineering at film school, then studied musique concrète at GRM. He has been composing music since 1986. He has a keen ear for hearing the stories behind each landscape, the melodies trapped inside objects – such as the metal sculpture he plays in “Cahuita, Costa Rica” – and the sonic pairings that let a story unfold without having to actually tell it.

After being featured on a few important compilation albums (like the first volume of Overheard and Rendered on AND/oar) and two CDs released in Malaysia (Balok Night Birds on Herbal Records; Dispositif: Canal St-Martin on XingWu, in collaboration with Eric Cordier), Mieville is now offering four wanderings in tropical lands, his first full-length CD to be released in his native France.
