Preconceived ideas about electronic music are hard to come by. One of them would be to think that the mastery of analogical instruments would be more noble than that of software. S8jfou knows that this is not true, that a computer is worth a modular synthesizer as long as you know how to exploit it fully, to plunge into it. On his new album Op·Echo, the producer has only surrounded himself with two digital tools available on Ableton: the Operator synthesizer, and the Echo delay. Nothing else. Not to limit himself or impose constraints, but rather to experiment, to show that the character of a sound or a piece can be made from scratch and offer a deeper and more emotional music.
