Erwan Sene is an artist and musician based in Paris. His composite body of work is led by a sculptural practice that unfolds on several levels – reprising, digesting and warping the objects that surround him. His first full-length album, JUnQ (or the Journal of Unsolved Questions), was released on PAN on April 2023. It is part of a multi-faceted, immersive installation project incorporating sculptures, a book and an exhibition that explores ideas of AI ontology and the nature of artistic performance.
Composed like a chorus of fantastical beasts, the album wanders atmospherically through a fogged wood. Sounds are sculpted, distorted and amplified, becoming hybrids of themselves. Sinuous violins, muffled harpsichord and digital instruments can be heard in this jungle of sounds, echoing rhythmic spirals and mystic drum tones.
