The experimental modular synthesizer duo “les ephemeres” are sound artist Katharina Bévand and producer, DJ and owner of the london label Secret Music Stéphane Lefrancois. les ephemeres has been streaming online and performing live since its new formation in 2021. Their first EP, Procession, was released on Bandcamp in February 2022 (https://lesephemeres.bandcamp.com/releases).

The duo performs on a synchronized modular synthesizer setup. Katharina’s sonic textures are interwoven with noise, drones, lo-fi and industrial sounds, which together with Stéphane’s abstract and organic rhythms, evoke symbiotic soundscapes. Ghostly playful sonic sceneries and rhythmic beats merge into les ephemeres own sound between club music, ambient and experimental electronics. Fascinated by the fleeting symbiosis between body and machines, the electric currents of the modular synthesizers give rise to constantly changing ephemeral soundscapes that find their origins in improvisation, field recording and sampling.
