- FULLSCREEN by FAUSTO MERCIER is, as the title hints at, a deeply immersive and undeniably full spectrum endeavor. With relentless showerings of razor-sharp kicks, precision-timed laser pulses and rubbery squeals, the overall construction is in the first place liquid, with individual sound objects having a flexible, plastic quality to them.

Sprinkled with stammering synth stabs, these tracks distill something infectiously clubby out of a boiling stew of high impact smeared bass hits, zooming metallic clangs and THX®-reminiscent sonorous light beams. Juicy, bubbling percussion on one hand confirms the radical malleability both grid and frame but paradoxically also leads to a heightened perception of precision in the arrangement, no doubt further cemented by the ultra HD sound design approach sustained throughout. Finally, the album is interspersed with a collection of spicy re-imaginings by Genot Centre associates, featuring a stroboscopic slicing masterclass by Forces, a no holds barred club killer by Ice_eyes and a full-range scanned mortal dissection by r.hunter.

Roland Nagy (Fausto Mercier) about FULLSCREEN:
„This album is a condensation of more than one and a half year’s drafts, sound design ideas, sonic objects and other audio fractions. During this non-directional series of actions, certain force fields started to emerge and the seemingly irrelevant pieces eventually found their connections at the end.“
Marick Roy about the cover design
„A creation is a piece of art in itself before being crystallized, classified in the domain that defines it. For each creation, artists destroy their initial idea to rebuild it in another way, to find the most just harmony, to deliberately forget this part so as to create a space. A silence coming to ensure a balance.“
