Pepe Wismeer

Pepe WismeerKaléidoscope maîtrisé d’influences éparses et vastes, l’univers très personnel de Pepe Wismeer duo vivant dans les Ardennes emmené par Anne-Laure Therme et Damien Van Lede – manie l’épure, la délicatesse, le minimalisme depuis 1999 en une vingtaine d’albums, tous relativement inclassables et profonds, aux confins de l’expérimental, de l’indus, de la dark-folk et de l’ambient. Dans leur univers glacial ou brûlant où se tapit un subtil mélange d’angoisse et de mélancolie, émergeant d’une multitude de sons organiques et analogiques, la voix languide, le piano et les effets parfois épiques insufflent des mélodies et des trames d’une irrésistible beauté. Nurse with Wound ne s’y est pas trompé, en les choisissant pour sa compilation de versions de Two Shaves And A Shine.

Kaleidoscope mastered by sparse and vast influences, the very personal universe of Pepe Wismeer – duo living in the Ardennes led by Anne-Laure Therme and Damien Van Lede – has been handling the purity, the delicacy, the minimalism since 1999 in about twenty albums, all relatively unclassifiable and deep, on the borders of experimental, industrial, dark-folk and ambient. In their icy or hot universe where a subtle mixture of anguish and melancholy crouches, emerging from a multitude of organic and analog sounds, the languid voice, the piano and the sometimes epic effects breathe melodies and frames of a irresistible beauty. Nurse With Wound was right, choosing them for its compilation of versions of Two Shaves And A Shine.
