LE VOLUME COURBE
Charlotte Marionneau has been making records as Le Volume Courbe for twenty years. Le Volume Courbe – it means “the volume curve” – is the name of a sculpture by an old friend in France.
Le Volume Courbe – hard to describe indeed – don’t play rock’n’roll, and don’t play world music. It’s out-of-this-world music. It’s in-your-own-world music, what-in-the-world music. It’s a diary of dreams.
London-based singer-songwriter experimentalist Koichi Yamanoha has been operating under the alias of Grimm Grimm since 2013. The project is an outlet for his fragile, emotional, haunted, otherworldly forays into baroque folk, futurist lyricism and electroacoustic oddities.
Born in Tokyo, Yamanoha’s first solo record, “Kazega Fuitara Sayonara” (Good Bye When The Wind Blows), was released in late 2014 via Kevin Shield and Charlotte Marionneau’s Pickpocket Records in collaboration with Honest Jon’s. His debut album, “Hazy Eyes Maybe”, was released by ATP Recordings in 2015 and tracks from the album were used as soundtrack for the Aaron Brookner / Jim Jarmusch directed documentary film “Uncle Howard”. Yamanoha released his third studio album, Ginormous, on 28 February 2020 on Tip Top Recordings. The album was mixed and co-produced by Marta Salogni and featured Paz Maddio and Lætitia Sadier.
