about

“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” is a collective and collection of ideas manifest in a succinct yet ambiguous work of multi-media art.
“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” is an evaluation and the reasoning of graphic art, yet is beyond mere graphics.
“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” is the discolouration of sound. The sonic and visual manipulation of the air around us.
Recognisable yet unintelligible words.
Words with and without “context” and “meaning”.
The works of Christophe Szpajdel inspired Andrew Liles and Sven Fuzz Kristiansen (aka Maniac) to create music.
To blur sound, to stretch and shrink time.
Andrew Liles manifested the “DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” concept by manipulating Maniac’s narration of the titles above.
Using only the sound of Maniac’s voice through various digital and analogue processes, seven tracks, each seven minutes long,
were created.
Christophe Szpajdel drew a logo for the duo - Liles/Maniac.
“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” was born.
