about

Tribe Tapes is honored to issue Klimperei's latest cassette, "Presque fini". For over 30 years, Christophe Petchanatz (France) has used the alias of Klimperei to produce intricate, charming music that defies the conventions of genre. Avant-folk, minimalism, and toy-box music are all brought into the bigger picture.

"Presque fini" was produced under the effects of quarantine and is a product of our times. For example, the opening piece, "dehors on ne se", roughly translates to "outside we do not". Melancholic strings swell and glisten amongst the floating crackles of noise. The remnants of folk guitar bring to mind simpler times. Though the subject matter is serious, the music is never cynical. In the face of social isolation, Christophe has produced an incredibly human work. We hope too that the compositions on this tape bring you the same joy and optimism that they've brought us.

Purchase of this album includes a bonus track, a version of "Un bout de pain" featuring longtime collaborator Frank Pahl on vocals.

This cassette is dedicated to Mami Chan and Denys-Louis Colaux, gone.
This music owes a lot to Max Eastman of Tribe Tapes who inspired me to start the project,
and to Roger Helfers who provided me with VSTi !
No real instrument was used for these recordings
