is Life's Decay fifth album. It has the particularity of being made of acoustic recordings only. This is a real evolution in the music of the duo. Around ten classical and acoustic instruments were used to make this album such as a piano, cello, violin, guitar, trumpet, accordion, bass, chime and various percussions and experimental sounds. A lot of work has been made on the percussion and on the sound researches in order to create particular and unique rhythms whether from a music box mechanism or from some large drums, from glass ringings to some breath recordings.
The feminine voice still entirely in french language which remains a major asset to Life's Decay. The voice walks among the instruments, sometimes whispered, sometimes energetic but always anchored to the project's universe. Eklaasera can not be described with a single musical style, it is a travel through various influences, experimental classical music sometimes filled with some country folk or even post-apocalyptic jazz. The general atmosphere is dark, industrial and especially Retro & Luxury. The mixing and mastering of this fifth album is also gaining in quality compared to previous albums. Eklaasera in addition to its Retro Luxury packaging comes with a 16-pages booklet containing all the latest artworks and all the latest photographs of the project, including also all the album lyrics and information.
