I FIND HOPE IN THE DARKEST OF DAYS,
AND FOCUS IN THE BRIGHTEST,
I DO NOT JUDGE THE UNIVERSE.
(Dalai Lama)


OUBLIER ET MOURIR is the side project by ANEMONE TUBE combining contemplative and melancholic ambient soundscapes & melodramatic pop created with synthesizer and voice. Originally initiated in 2008 recordings have been made over the years, but have not been published until June 2012.

"ANEMONE TUBE has aroused much attention with his two consecutive releases ‘Dream Landscape’ (2010) and ‘Death over China’ (2011), which embody hell’s darkest nightmares to give a good, hard glimpse of Death’s reign over matter and human existence. Now a new form of expression is born and in a sense it is the cathartic aftermath of the unbearable pain caused by the previous realisations. Such an expression required a different vehicle, which is OUBLIER ET MOURIR (‘to forget and to die’). A name perfectly suited to the peaceful, meditative, but also deeply emotional and atmospheric character of the music, which is a unique mix of melancholic ambient soundscapes & melodramatic pop sometimes reminding of TOR LUNDVALL and (early) SYLVAIN CHAUVEAU."
(Presstext of BRUME / OUBLIER ET MOURIR - A YEAR TO LIVE 12" LP, 2012)

“Oublier Et Mourir's sound design stands out, with all the pieces hanging in suspended perfection. (...) If only every member of the underground had this dedication towards their craft! (...) For anyone who's burned a hole in their Lustmord or Black Tape For A Blue Girl records, and are looking for a different kind of melancholy.”
(Chain DLK, December 2012)

REVIEWS

“Oublier Et Mourir's sound design stands out, with all the pieces hanging in suspended perfection. He stands at the edge of oblivion, unblinking, and notates it all to see. Oublier Et Mourir then acts as a psychopomp to the living, describing the afterlife and all its strange angels with a rich, complex tonal pallet that is more Bach than Bastard Noise. If only every member of the underground had this dedication towards their craft! (...) It is a rare and precious combination, to have talented and adept composers and sound artists looking into the subtle hues and strata of living and dying; reflecting upon memory, thought, passions. 'A Year To Live' is a valuable addition to any late-night listening library, or for anyone who's burned a hole in their Lustmord or Black Tape For A Blue Girl records, and are looking for a different kind of melancholy.”
(Chain DLK, December 2012)

“In this release we can see two artists with notably different points of view complement one another's vision, in such a precise and dedicated manner that one can truly not exist without the other. (...) OUBLIER ET MOURIR (new side project of ANEMONE TUBE) is harmonious, serene atmospheric ambient with ethereal and organic passages. In this side of the record the tragedy and the miracle of life are equally expressed, asserting that one cannot exist without the other. We are reminded of the emotion that overcomes us, when we are witnessing beauty of the sublimest kind – admiration and awe, mixed with sadness. As soon as something is born, its death becomes inevitable. That sort of realisation can only be awakened in the truest forms of art, and that is what we are faced with here. BRUME is more cerebral, comprised of structured rhythms and abstract experimentation. Tempered with a distinct minimalism, it has more to do with the comprehension and acceptance of existence, as well as the struggle to achieve that comprehension. The wheel of Samsara is ever set in motion, and finding our place in it can be a painful procedure."
(Santa Sangre Magazine, VITRIOL, 2012)

“The soft melancholy evoked by OUBLIER ET MOURIR, which is emphasised by ‘The Wind from Nowhere’ (J.G. Ballard), generates an interplay between the consciousness of the (own) impermanence and feeling save within the sounds. (...) seagulls seem to screech, waves are hissing, the Lama lets the prayer bells chime, and also here repetitive patterns are used to create a meditative, trance-like atmosphere, with a similar mood as TOR LUNDVALL. This is indeed an all-embracing listening/listener`s experience in the truest sense of the word."
(African Paper, M.G., 2012)

“BRUME creates environments ranging from the completely abstract to the vaguely specific, using elements such as voice samples, loops, wide-ranging drones, ghostly ambiences, noise, various electronics and even percussions. (...) The loops and voice samples roam throughout the track list like persistent ghosts wandering in a transcendental, shapeless purgatory, reciting their obsessions as a you would recite a mantra.”
(Santa Sangre Magazine, VITRIOL, 2012)

“Two artists, two approaches and at the same time so many ideas, that the year, the title refers to, is easily filled.”
(African Paper, M.G., 2012)
