LP version. Gatefold sleeve; includes download code. The poet, producer, and visual artist Ramuntcho Matta comes back to music with 96. 96 - as in 96 hours were needed to record this new album. Ramuntcho points out that behind this dazzling recording, years of experience enabled him to achieve the mix of spontaneity and intimacy of the album. He was the man behind the success of Elli Medeiros's ''Toi Mon Toit'' (1986). As a matter of fact, Ramuntcho Matta likes to put artists in the spotlight, as he has done with Brion Gysin, Don Cherry, and many others. However, this time he decided to put himself in the spotlight with a record that sounds very '90s - with a wink to Bill Laswell for the bass - but still very contemporary. The album unveils a dark atmosphere, as if Alain Bashung had lost himself in a Lynch film. Record sleeve designed by Ramuntcho Matta. Unpublished notes and drawings from the artist's logbook Desseins Du Jour.
