On their PITP debut, PDG/MV deliver seven, moody and cinematic improvisations that cover a wide breadth of textures and emotional landscapes.  Mechanical drones, feedback, and static build and eventually collapse into spacious and subaquatic ambiance.  Masterful transitions occur at a moments notice, keeping the listener engaged from start to finish.

Based in Lyon, France, PGD and MV gathered in an old farm at the heart of Burgundy and went on a 4-day improvisation session. Using modular and non-modular synthesis, electronics and field recordings, without any overdubs, "Morvan" was the result from these recordings.

Pierre Georges Desenfant is an all-round artist. The self-taught musician creates, designs, modifies and experiments. He doesn't stop at sound experimentation: he also works as as a sound engineer, electronics engineer, photographer and a visual artist. Each of these activities reveal his personal approach: a confident minimalism, a willingness to seek out his own unique path.

With Blackthread, PGD's solo creation, the multi-instrumentalist offers bare electronic music, stark and repetitive, an ideal haunting-ground for the exploration of his dreams, led by a narrative form of spoken lyrics that has become his hallmark.

Maxime Vavasseur is a french musician and composer mainly performing and releasing music as Witxes.

Under this monicker, MV crashes popular music into singular music since 2010. This project finds its way in the balance between improvisation, sound research and composition. Focus is, here, laid on creating abstract yet often tonal pieces, blurring lines between acoustic and electronic sources.
