NO-EYED DEER is the debut record of the improvised-Chansonoise duo of David Helm (voice/guitar/electronics/double bass/objects) and Jozef Dumoulin (rhodes/piano/electronics); recorded at Loft in Cologne in Spring 2021. Over the years both musicians have used all sorts of electronic devices to convert their instruments into cyborgs, which they use here to invent a strange and wonderful universe; a new logic of futuristic structures and violent yet fragile sound textures that grow into a deep trance state.

What does it mean to actually follow your dreams? Are those dreams set in stone or are they ever changing? What are the sacrifices you are willing to make on the way?

The one answer I got out of this work and the process is that change is inevitable.
If we are privileged enough to live in a society that does not disrupt individuals by violence and supression, it's up to us what we do with that freedom. If we have the choice, change in ourselves can be the most full filling and liberating thing if there's a loving element involved.

I am very thankful to Jozef for bringing all this trust with him from Paris that time. It enabled us to leave any sort of paradigm behind and form the sonic sculpture that is captured on this recording.
