"Chyo is an energetic experimental record which clearly derives its style from the the heavier IDM corners of atmospheric storytelling." - Bandcamp Daily
"An ecomusical force majeure, an interesting interspecies outcry." - Zenevloed
"Drifting between destructive, ominous waves and sparkling electronics, is this ambient banger of sorts." - Magnetic Magazine
"Chyo is a sort of hallucinatory exploration of the abysses of sound, through experimentation in electronic music that is first of all "philosophical research" and then analys in a musical key." - Rockit
‘Chyo’ is the debut EP for Rest Now! by Tristan, the French multidisciplinary artist Tristan Brundler. Tristan makes music like he sculpts: by shaping voices, empty landscapes, organic forms, melting plastic and vegetals to create spaces and dimensions to walking in.
It goes through stages of recovery, deconstruction, reassembly and fusion of sound materials. Tristan's music meets his sculptural desire: the creation of places, atmospheres and poetry. Swaying between electronic violence and mental sweetness, between ambient, club and neo-trap influences, Tristan tries to move forward in the construction of his psychological projection space.
‘Chyo’ is a poetic area of future inquiries. During the production, Tristan worked with the artists Migu and Whiterose for the vocal parts. Tristan describes ‘Chyo’ as if everything is falling out, and “I do not understand what I’m doing here, what is the sense of my presence in this environment.”
