Joni Void & N NAO are the respective monikers of surrealists Jean Néant and Naomie de Lorimier from Montréal, Québec - who found each other in 2016 through a poetry-reading/performance by Naomie in Jean’s home at the time, a DIY loft-venue known as The Plant. This would lead to numerous events involving both, there and in many other Montréal underground spaces, until both finally worked on a collaborative piece for Joni Void’s album “Mise en Abyme” released in 2019 on Constellation Records, and began performing together as a duo following that. Nature Morte is their first collaborative album, where voice, tape samples & field-recordings meet montage & electronic production to form a collage of sorts, an abstract puzzle that unfolds both artists’ sound-worlds.
Recorded between December 2017 & July 2020 in Montréal, Québec. Mastered by Simon Lancelot. Artwork by Albarrán Cabrera. Design by Sprflxgrfzm.
