Klimperei & GNG met in real life a few years ago during Music for Toys festival. Since then, they have created a character, called Alfred. Scraps of life of that fictionnal character are the basis of the 13 songs of a vinyl album to be released at the beginning of October on the label MonsterK7. This collaboration is the result of the confrontation of two visions : Klimperei’s instrumental toy music and GNG’s electro DIY experiments.
Dozens of albums, prestigious collaborations (Frank Pahl, Pierre Bastien, David Fenech, Madame Patate, Dominique Grimaud, Voxfazer, Palo Alto, Don Simon y Telefunken...), music for dance, theâtre, television, advertising and a very few public appearances : Klimperei, founded in 1985, is defined today as something lazily swirling at the junction of toy music, experimental, prog and minimal.
Founded in 1997, GNG is a French electronica-pop duo. These two old friends create “home made” songs on which sound collages mix with other more synthetic textures.
