Étienne Jaumet partners with the English musician Peter Kember, better known by the stage name of Sonic Boom, for a creation around La Monte Young.
More than just a pioneer of minimalist music, the composer La Monte Young has a strong influence on many musicians from different backgrounds often. A cult figure, though less publicized than that of his colleagues Terry Riley, Steve Reich or Philip Glass … Behind their analog synthesizers, the French Etienne Jaumet (Zombie Zombie) and Englishman Peter Kember (aka Sonic Boom and ex-Spacemen 3) are two very different examples designers fascinated by Young. Two musicians united by their experimental forces to celebrate, through creation, the music of this alien American composer also behind the buzzing drone music, a musical which also influence well some works of the Velvet Underground Lou Reed and John Cale than Brian Eno.
