Two years after his album release “Lykkelig Dyr” sound- and videoartist Stephane Leonard joins Frozen Elephants Music with a collection of eight intimate sketches created between 2009-2010 in Berlin (GER) and Bergen (NO). If you pay close attention to the detail you’ll find yourself trapped within the processed and dissonant recordings of Kalimba, Cymbals and many other little toylike sounds. However, as the title indicates these eight tracks are no overall joyful ride. “Please destroy me” runs on sonic chaos, distorted glitch, sometimes bursting in with puzzling plucks and bits from the distant ruins of the original music. These are atmospheric miniatures indeed, but it is the longstreched low vibrations, the static rumble and clatter and the overall sense of alienation that makes this music so bewildering.

Stephane Leonard lives and works in Berlin, is part of various projects (such as Laptop Orchester Berlin) and founding member of the naivsuper artist/film collective. He has published various albums and eps over the past years. His works have been shown in exhibitions in Berlin, New York, Hamburg, Bremen, Bergen, Vienna, Zürich, Bangkok etc.
