Sova Stroj is the nom de plume of Luxembourg-based producer Michel Flammant. With a history in black metal, rock and synth pop bands, he has now ventured out on his own, delving into experimental and electronic music.
Although modular and semi-modular synthesis are at the core of his music nowadays, he often incorporates different and seldom used instruments, a love for sound always defining his compositional work. Keen on detail and precision, his compositions wander from their electronic roots with ease and poise, a defined eclecticism always running through them.
In the studio as well as live, improvisation and chance are integral parts of his music.
‘Silent Earth’ is his first outing as Sova Stroj. A limited edition of the album includes the ‘Cult Vaginal’ tape.
