I am very excited for new Deep Forest material! The new album, 'Evo-Devo', is being released June 10th by Metropolis Records. Producer Eric Mouquet gave some great insight into the concept and process of the album.
“The concept of ‘EVO DEVO’, which is based on studies of the process of evolution and the ability of nature to create new forms and structures, is part of my musical approach. Starting from a single sine waveform to create any kind of sound, based on the broad heritage of the Deep Forest influences, make me feel like these scientists trying to understand the secret of life...”
“Composing a new album is always something special and quite a magical process. I compose and experiment in the studio for months, crafting sounds, taking notes, exploring new machines, playing, improvising and finally letting the music evolve without any preconceived idea. One day without any special reason, everything starts to make sense, the different ideas gather in a logical form and there it is: the finished, brand-new album."
"When I started this one, I did not imagine, that the music finally could lead me to all these songs. Step by step I realized how this album was related to the Boheme-Deep-Forest-Feel and at the same time was so deeply anchored in contemporary electronic music.”
Here is a streaming preview of "Stutter Dream", one of the songs off the new album:
