FFFs new experimental-fusion-rock ensemble FORRM has released its explorative psychedelic debut album 'FORRM NU FORRM' Available on all digital platforms
'NU FORRM opens with SHIMMER a 17mn sinuous sonic adventure that figures as the the soundscape of his ongoing Venice Biennale installation - giving the tone to a free form experiment overlapping genres and formats. FarmanFarmaian leads the project with a signature vintage sound on electric guitar - charging the load with tribal riffs and deep ambient distortion seeking connections with the Gnawa of Essaouira and Sub-Saharian desert rock ( A NOMAD PRAYER ) while tripping poetic vocal drops as shamanistic dreamscapes ( HIDING PLACE, JOL ) along spiritual visions ( GATES OF TURAN ) and a personal SPACEY ballad, EMBERS ATONE'
FORRM'S GATES OF TURAN
'The source takes were recorded on analog four-track at Finca Le Big Pink in Sotogrande Spain just around xmas 2021 ( the analog feel is there on the intro - click and 3-4 ) and sent to the Paris studio of old school band-mate drummer-producer Philippe Deshaies ( Trampoline Records ) that elevated the creation with power-psychedilic drums and keyboards takes.
FORRM's 'Gates of Turan' featured as the soundscape of the Venice Biennale Syncretic KAYAKALAK NFT Panels in its instrumental version before being finalized at Punta Paloma Studios in Tarifa Spain with freeform poetic vocals based on San Francisco Beat Poet Edward D. Baker's 'Gates of Turan' dedicated text.'
