Notes and Editorial Reviews

The name of this band, which translates to “time factory,” is quite revealing of the group’s approach. The disc takes listeners straight into a multi-entry universe, where various worlds cross paths. We can hear the pulse of time, which is also the pulse of history, and travels across many territories, both geographical and musical—from Egypt to the Balkans via the Mediterranean. The joint use of acoustic and amplified instruments—synthesizers, electric guitars, and even human beat-box—makes up a strange, Ballard- or Cronenberg-style science-fiction creature. Zaman Fabriq offers us plentiful breath (Isabelle Courroy), age-old vocal style (Zein Mahmoud), parallel strings (Bruno Allary), heartrending sounds and ambiences (Philippe Guiraud), Read more and stunning mouth rhythms (Tiko).

Featured Artists:
Isabelle Courroy: flutes, kaval
Bruno Allary: guitar, saz
Zein Mahmoud: vocals
Philippe Guiraud: bass, keyboards
Tiko (Nicolas Giemza): human beatbox
