Nuances d’engrais

Teddy Larue is a French artist who graduated with a master’s degree in art and sound from the Hear. With his solo projet Nuances d’engrais, the Leipzig-based artist creates slow deep bass lines, layers of dark abstract soundscapes, and vibrant granular sound collages infused with dancing IDM rhythms and mesmerizing drone atmospheres providing an experimental and performative listening set where the most free and energetic public could dance. It’s like walking down the street and bumping into the same person twice, a kind of bug that makes you question your whole existence. The music of Nuances d’Engrais is at once visceral, but at the same time sounds as if it were made by machines that have long since replaced humans. A crazy mix of ambient and break that makes you want to dance to the almost dub-like bass in a concert hall that suddenly seems strangely glitched out. He uses a sampler, field recording, granular techniques, generative rhythm, and FX chains in an improvised, live machine performance. With his project, Teddy performs somewhere between DIY festivals, art contexts, and other alternative venues. He has already toured in France, Belgium, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, and Germany. His music has been released on EZ and Lost Dogs Entertainment.
