“Experimental work of MxBG in his track Rite from Astyanax Records is a kind of fossil in the genre framework of IDM sound. In the best traditions of the old school and early work of Richard David James.”
“Экспериментальная работа MxBG - Rite от Astyanax Records своего рода ископаемое в жанровых рамках IDM звучания. В лучших традициях старой школы и ранних работ Richard David James.”
"Rite" is an electronic variation on a sample of Stravinsky's ballet "The Rite of Spring". Between onirism and savagery, it unfolds like a meditation taking its source in the complex, haunting and implacable rhythm of the final sacrificial dance of "The Rite of Spring".
The French produser MxBG invites us to an electronic musical and visual journey, between dreaming, exaltation and nostalgia. He mixes to an exploratory techno with industrial touches his sense of orchestral colours and organic melodies.
Immersed in Beethoven’s symphonies and Wagner’s operas since childhood, MxBG was introduced to modern music via two great works: OK Computer by Radiohead and Londinium by Archive. MxBG’s carefully-crafted music reflects this wide range of inspirations and blends classical instruments with synthetisers and samples.
Fascinated by machines and their contribution to art, he develops real-time generative art algorithms that he presents in his live show articulating electronic explorations and visual experimentations.
