julian frank Appropriately named like a greek epic, prepare to embark on a journey over the wide expanse of the oceans through byzantine sonic architecture that lies in the deepest gorges of a sub acquatic world. The glorious double vinyl I am holding is autographed by the artist with a flourish in a swish gold pen! For followers of Syl Kougai, quality is a given, and ΙΧΘΥΣ is recognisably his magnus opus.

released May 12, 2015

ΙΧΘΥΣ is an intense electronic music album with rich and varied compositions in witch Syl Kougaï uses his unique synthetic sounds, sometimes with very complex tones that come closer to the acoustic world. He plays with the borders of these two universes and develops imaginary instruments, mixing classical playing to unexpected mechano-acoustic reactions.

All tracks written & produced by Syl Kougaï
Recorded at Bleeding Arts Studios in Neo Paris France
Photography & sleeve design by Bleeding Arts
"The Creation of Adam" is a fresco painting of Michelangelo
