Gaspar Claus: New EP & video for “2359” with Denis Lavant
French cellist and composer Gaspar Claus returns to InFiné after his mesmerizing Tancade album with a stunning new EP based on the album highlight “2359”. The synthetic, artificial, and uptempo cut from the record was an obvious standout, in it’s break from Claus’ more straight forward neo-classical cello pieces.In addition to the original album version, 2359 is met with a new “Night Blossom Version”, a techno reimagining of the track based on Claus’s live collaboration with Basile3. The EP is balanced by two new tracks : “Amour Constrictor”, a b-side from Tancade that Claus was particularly fond of, and “Recycled Future”, a commission from the website radiooooooo that imagines a world in the year 2070 where production relied entirely on recycling. The piece found him digging through an archive of memory cards of old loop pedals, each one filled with bits and pieces of live shows from years past. After assembling these memories together, Claus was left with an allegory for his dream of the future; an 8 minute, fully upcycled composition.
