DIKTAT is a Dutch/French electroacoustic alliance, that combines the idiomatics of EAI (Electro Acoustic Improvisation) with extreme contrapuntal thinking, the asymmetry of free declamation and the spontaneity of associative, surrealist collage. The playback and manipulation of a multitude of (often voice based) lo-fi analog recordings (either found or custom made) and the occasional use of odd home-built electronic contraptions, provide the threads, that, through the double bass’s steer and stitch, are woven into a tense, coherent & multi-layered sonic fabric of varying narrational density.
