About this item
"Nous N'étions Jamais Vraiment Là" (We Were Never Really There) was built from a desire to get closer at a time of isolation. Each track traverses a different imagined environment as emotional and psychological states unfold. The album was shaped by a sense of duration and slowness, as well taking inspiration from the concept of the four elements; air, earth, water and fire.
The project began from an impulse to make music with a stranger. Gradually through conversation, from Paris to London, the two musicians learned to find a shared sonic language.
Matt says: When ambient music stops you dead in your tracks you know you're onto summat special. These five tracks did exactly that - causing me to cease whatever I was doing and enter the duo's unique aural environment fully committed. The trip was very rewarding!
