CATALOGUE :

Std infi 20. SOURDURE/ MANTRAS sold out
3x cassette. 80 copies, silkscreen printed covers and insert.
Released 2017
In June 2016, the great-outdoors music festival Echos asked Ernest Bergez aka Sourdure to produce a series of ten "mantras" set to be diffused in between each
concert of the twenty-four hours event taking place in the french Alpes. These ten pieces were played on the festival's gigantic
speakers/ horns system in the afternoon,
evening,
night, morning, noon... and reverberated fully in the rocky valley. This edition gathers the field-recording-like captures of the tracks delivered once again
through the system later that year by Ernest Bergez with the help of Frédéric Bernier, Joachim Brissaud and Julien Dessailly.
All instruments by Ernest Bergez except the Gaida, the Uillean Pipe and the Low Whistle by Julien Dessailly. The tapes contain three complementary pieces
composed from the original recordings (June 2016 and November 2016) and recorded in Royat in May 2017. This edition also contains the graphic score and lyrics
of a song inspired by the event and the tenth mantra, thus the only piece not
present on the tapes, also composed by Sourdure in May 2017.
A highly esoteric and cosmic soundscape journey, to be played at maximum volume!

Ernest Bergez deeply thanks Association Dôme and Association Les Villages des Jeunes.
Recorded in November 2016 in Faï and mixed in 2017 in Royat by Ernest Bergez.
Artwork by Standard In-Fi, printed by Antoine Lambin at Société Ecran.


Commandé par l'Association Dôme pour le festival Echos, les Mantras ont été composés par Ernest Bergez au Faï en Juin 2016.
Enregistré sur les trompes du Faï pour Standard In-Fi en Novembre 2016, avec le concours de Frédéric Bernier, Joachim Brissaud et Julien Dessailly.
Gaida, Uilleann Pipe et Low Whistle y sont joués par Julien Dessailly et tout les autres instruments par Ernest Bergez.
La présente édition contient trois pièces complémentaires composées à partir de matériaux originaux et enregistrés à Royat en Mai 2017.
Chaleureux remerciements à l'Association Dôme et l'Association Les Villages des Jeunes.

Std infi 17. GUILHEM LACROUX / LA TRAVERSEE sold out
2x cassette, 80 copies. C-40+C-38. Riso printed gatefold cover and insert. Double cassette jewel case. Released 2017
Solo work of free-improvisation/immediate-composition on acoustic lapsteel, banjo, mandoline, acoustic guitar, 12 and 6 strings electric guitar.
As David Keenan puts it "There is something of the late John Fahey's electrical guitar conceptions in the movement of Lacroux's playing,
particularly his last recordings, where Fahey's umbilical to country blues extended far enough to make of it a future wraith, the ghost of it's origin
come back as a distant dream. (...) Guilhem Lacroux works single solitary notes into soft sighing shapes. His playing is taut and loose, sounding tactile,
percussive note clusters, sliding between lunar notes. Lacroux works in signs and patterns, translates them into figures suspended in air, into simple
repeating notes."

Recorded and mixed by Guilhem Lacroux in 2016. Artwork by Ségolène Moteley. Printed by Papier Machine.

Std infi 12. FAUNE / VOLATIL postponed
LP, 300 copies. Silkscreen printed thick folder cover with stamped label.
Faune is a duo featuring Guilhem Lacroux (Toad, La Baracande, Tanz Mein Herz) on guitar and lapsteel as well as Jacques Puech (Jericho,
Duo Puech-Gourdon ...) on voice, bagpipes, shruti box and glass harmonica. The traditional themes they play are solely taken from the Cantal
territory (Auvergne), a very rich and diversified area in terms of musical heritage. Both musicians here aim for a minimal approach, using their
amps only to generate the lowest, most haunting melodies and drone possible, thus enabling a very rich and variation-full breeding ground for the
voice (sung in French and Occitan). Recorded on their first live appearance, this session is, in all it's fragility, a beautiful document where both
musicians are captured in full devotion to the Music.
Recorded by the band in Fontaine St.Martin (2012). Mastered by Frederic Alstadt. Artwork by Standard In-Fi. Printed by Olivier Bral.

discussion and patience, we are very proud to present an LP version of the only recording of the duo.
