Uncloud presents (2021)
Near Stoic is Skander Ben Yahia’s alias, in which he becomes a storyteller. Experimenting with tapes, modular synths, field recordings and archives, the Tunisian musician makes use of every material at his display to immerse the listener on a journey made up of memories and feelings. His debut album, aptly named ‘Notebook (Thoughts and Short Stories)’, recorded entirely during the first COVID lockdown in Paris, will appear on Third Kind Records in early November - just a few days before Le Guess Who? 2021.
