    Co-édité par le Musée d’ethnographie de Genève et le label genevois Mental Groove Records, MEG/CDG inaugure une nouvelle série de CD consacrées à des compositions contemporaines réalisées à partir des archives sonores du MEG.

    Pour composer leur nouvel album MEG/CDG, le duo genevois Sinner DC a puisé dans les monumentales Archives Internationales de Musiques Populaires (AIMP) conservées au Musée d’ethnographie de Genève, quelques morceaux de musiques populaires enregistrées dans le sud des Etats-Unis en 1937 et 1939, au Niger et en Roumanie dans les années 1950 comme base de travail pour composer 5 pièces.

    Conçu comme un album kaleidoscopique, un voyage panoramique - le titre de l'album et des morceaux sont des codes d'aéroport IATA), MEG/CDG explore les limites de la vision panoramique du groupe à travers des paysages hypnotiques et des lieux imaginaires. Au delà de l'exercice initial, le duo délivre en fait un tout nouvel album, en attendant la sortie du prochain, intitulé "Maps", en étroite collaboration avec Pete Kember alias Sonic Boom, légendaire fondateur du groupe psyche Spacemen 3 (1988) et plus récemment producteur de Panda Bear et Mgmt. Sortie prévue pour celui ci début 2016.

    Includes unlimited streaming of MEG/CDG via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Over the past 20 years, genevan duo SINNER DC has built a solid yet discreet reputation on the international electronic music scene. Their ethereal intergalactic yet catchy melodies, full on emotions and melancholy, became throughout the years the band's trademark.

Co-published by the prestigious Museum of Ethnography of Geneva and swiss renowned Mental Groove Records, this first album entitled MEG/CDG inaugurates a new series of CDs devoted to contemporary compositions sourced from the monumental audio archives of the Museum (read below*).

MEG / CDG's backbone contains music from Romania, Niger and southern United States, from the mid 30's to the early 50's that the genevan duo Sinner selected while browsing the museum database .

MEG / CDG is a kaleidoscopic album and a scenic trip - the title of the album and the songs are of IATA airport codes and explores the limits of the panoramic vision of the duo through hypnotic landscapes and imaginary places.

Sinner DC will next deliver a new album entitled "Maps" co writtent with Pete Kember, legendary founder of the influential late 80's psychedelic band Spacemen 3 and most recently producer for Panda Bear and Mgmt.

The Museum of Ethnography of Geneva and Mental Groove have already planned the follow up with french Julien Perez (Dirty/Barclay) and canadian Jeremy Young (Sontag Shogun)

Support: Pedro Winter, Nicolas Jaar, James Holden, Sonic Boom.
