Langage Computer's essence lies in the integration of the turntable and scratches as self-sufficient instruments. It introduces a new sound marked by both experimental HipHop and electronic sonorities. Instead of being just another demonstration of technique, which is often the case in turntablist projects, here the performance has been researched in order to leave room for a certain sonic esthetic to blend into the whole and form a unified sound.
The results are technically beyond reproach, but much more subtle in content and form.
Langage Computer consists of two members: John Bloug takes care of all compositional aspects, while Detect handles the turntables for the scratched episodes and sonic add-ons.
Langage Computer have produced a first 27-minute project consisting of a single piece in multiple movements. Released privately in a run of one hundred CDs, it was later made available for download from selected electronic/HipHop-oriented websites. Results of the operation: over 350 downloads.
Influences are plural and widely spread.
The paths of experimental HipHop artists the likes of Anticon, Mush, Def Jux, Project Blowed or Living Legends crisscross with the catalogs of Warp (mostly Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, and Autechre), Tigerbeat6, or Rephlex, or even with artists such as Console, Murcof, Plaid, and Squarepusher.
But in order to get the whole picture, you would also have to dig your way into the indie rock scene.
