Misty shroud of regrets is an album by french pianist Philippe Blache aka Day Before Us. Inspired by the work of the russian photographer Yulia Kazban, the piano and field recordings are fighting for a gloomy survival,perpetuated in the place where the cry is born.It’s an ancient magic, the forest becomes wave, the wind on the leaves imponderable but restless, so that sound chase sound, until the next beginning.

“Child of a new light” is the work of Day Before Us, French and now bi-national music project whose objective has been continuously motivated by the need to create semiclassical-processed soundscapes with a special spiritual intensity. This album offers a stylistic evolution for a more visible dialectic between narratives, lyrical chants, instrumental ambient textures which seek a world of revelation linked to contemplative rituals.
At the distance this forthcoming album is a resolutely dark ambient neoclassical release but from a closer listening it defies the canonical schemas of genre . The musical argument reaches a synthesis and an harmonious conversation between consonant acoustic minimalism and warmly nostalgic emotional ambiences with a great sense of romanticism and experimentalism.
Texturally moving ambient realms meet sound poetries in a unique nostalgic flavor. The piece consists of seven tracks over thirty-six minutes. The download also includes a high-resolution photo set by Francesca Parita.
.::NOW AVAILABLE on AUDITORY FIELD THEORY::. Collaboration between 6&8 and Day Before Us. With Rory Mc Cormick, Jessica Peace, Philippe Blache, Francesca Parità.
Press release note: “This digital composition is a collaboration between 6&8 and Day Before Us. Ma Propre Fable, un Dimanche has a certain elegance that flutters about unhinged. A broken fable, esoteric folklore, the narrative tracks through a series of disarrayed rooms, while stuttering and circling time. Fragile connections collapse into fits of reality, as science haunts the artist and starves a dying universe.”
Misty Shroud of Regret is definitely a work in black and white. Nocturnal movements numbed by noisy wanderings and laid back sparse ambiences and soundscapes in equilibrium between void desolation and dreamy incantation… (Darklife Journal & podcast)

Autumnal wandering is a soundscaping based project largely impregnated by the purest incantatory-visionary forms of the Austrian-German “weltschmerz” poetical tradition (from the mystically haunted Christian symbolism of Georg Trakl, to the dreamlike romanticism of Ludwig Tieck and the tormented ecstasies of Nicolaus Lenau). Musically, the whole compositional process is turned to infinitely melancholic, sinister and epic semi-acoustic neoclassical sound textures, electronic drone in-flux, blurry organic chords and deeply emotional poetical lyricism. For this last project, Philippe Blache (Day Before Us) is accompanied by the vocalist and electronic sound designer Markus Pape (M@p).
