Le français Lingouf est un artiste ultra prolifique et membre du collectif pluridiciplinaire Otolythe, auteur d’un huitième album en 7 ans sur l’excellent label allemand Ant-Zen, qui fête cette année ses 20 ans d’existence. Passé maitre dans les mélanges improbables construits à coups de déflagrations explosives et d’expérimentations diverses, aux confluents de l’electro -acoustique et du hardcore, en fonction de ses divers projets, Lingouf marque une nouvelle étape avec Oeuvre Au Noir, proposant des ambiances méchamment addictives, à coups de rythmiques denses à la puissance indus, de textes corrosifs et de synthés viciés jusqu’à l’os. Oeuvre Au Noir, comme son titre l’indique, ne fait pas dans la dentelle, avec ses kicks surpuissants enracinés dans des parterres de métal en fusion, appuyés par une production chirurgicale aux saturations omniprésentes, créant un magma terrassant. La voix d’Obsachala sur les titres La Version Du Jour, Tête De Mort et Pleure Pétales, ajoute une touche féminine qui vient renforcer la sensation de néant abrasif poétique et de torture mentale à fleur de peau. Lingouf propose un album aux altérations énervées, accentué par un sens de la composition haletante, capable de montées scotchantes et de coups de marteaux fatals. Imparable.  Roland Torres

if this thoroughly imaginative artist isn’t getting the attention he deserves, it’s certainly not his fault. his music is captivating, almost whimsical, original, and at times challenging. “œuvre au noir” is his eighth album in seven years for ant-zen, who aren’t exactly operating out of someone’s basement. stop what you are doing and listen to lingouf.Kate Macdonald

I am one of those people who judge a book/album/movie by their cover. This is not my favorite cover and I am embarrassed to admit that I skipped over this album for a few weeks. This was a big mistake and I consider it a lesson learned. Oeuvre au Noir is a chaotically wonderful album. “Pierre Noire” is a track that I think most accurately previews the entire album. There are moments when I have no idea what is going on, or how it is happening in the song. These moments are followed by incredible breakdowns and rhythmic breaks that bring me right back on board with the song. For fans of: early Chrysalide, Twinkle, or 100blumen.

Vincent Lingouf is a France based artist, Normandy to be exactly. He is famous for his artwork and paintings, his music can be catalogued as ‘experimental’. Lingouf brings a very eclectic mix of sounds, beats, and noisy environments, all this with heavy rhythms and breaks. Since 2008 he joined the German Ant-Zen label.
With his new album Frequences Sensibles he continues with his bizarre sound of heavy mixes between powerful industrial beats and deep electronics with bizarre melodies, all added with French conversations and breaks. Music for the broad minded audio art lovers! Tracks like Faim Du Monde and the title track Fréquences Sensibles are the two more acceptable songs. Rhythmic, even some danceable tunes, carefully selected voice samples that pass into furious technoid outbursts. The rest of this album is heavily experimental with even some influences from classical music, dubstep, hardcore and industrial. These tunes are for a very select audience. All in all, this album is experimental from start to finish. Cleverly pieced together into individual electronic montages, once again this will not be everyone’s cup of tea.  Peter HESELMANS

Ant-zen : With ‘œuvre au noir’ which is already lingouf’s eighth full length release on ant-zen in seven years, the multitalented frenchman vincent ingouf presents his’ aggressive and danceable side. mid-tempo hardcore techno and industrial interlock into one mercilessly pounding barrage while the typical playful melody lines that this project is well-known for are still clearly audible. instead of the excessive use of sampling which appeared on previous releases, this opus’ emphasis is set squarely on on sung vocals, the lyrics of which are displayed in a beautifully designed 12-page booklet. ‘œuvre au noir’ – a brutal, intense, pulsing vortex of straightforward digital beats, harsh sequenced distortion and processed voices, intended to make you move, and to make you listen.
