In June 2016, the great-outdoors music festival Echos asked Ernest Bergez aka Sourdure to produce a series of "mantras" set to be diffused in between each concert of the twenty-four hours event taking place in the french Alpes. These pieces were played on the festival's gigantic speakers/ horns system in the afternoon, evening, night, morning, noon... and reverberated fully in the rocky valley. This triple vinyl edition gathers the field-recording-like captures of the tracks delivered once again through the system later that year by Ernest Bergez with the help of Frédéric Bernier, Joaquim Brissaud and Julien Desailly.
This edition contains three complementary pieces composed from the original recordings (June 2016 and November 2016) and recorded in Royat in May 2017.
