"L'Or" is a polyptychal album recorded during Sanatorium Of Sound 2017 festival in Sokolowsko in Poland. "L'Or" means "gold" in French and both tracks were called with words with the same meaning: "Aurum", in Latin, and "Золото", in Russian.
Two tracks comprise around five hence the polyptychal theme of the album, some of them sound harsh, some resemble quiet zones. Keith Rowe takes the middle area between Kurt Liedwart's work with modular synthesizer and cracked homemade and everyday electronics and Julien Ottavi's preoccupation with his computer and objects.
The structure looks really similar like a caduceus, ever evolving lines, vibrations, sonic clusters around Rowe's clicks and occasional whisper of his guitar and radio. The album takes a no-man's land between EAI, noise, minimal electronics and contemporary music.
