TERRITOIRE: Mastering and manufacturing of 'Mandorle'

TERRITOIRE is the new project of Olivier Arson, after his first record as The Folding and the point, where he lets loose from ambient to produce a work more narrative thanks to the collaboration of 13 musicians and vocalists.

In less than a week, we have reached our first objective to raise 1.200€ thanks to your confidence. There is still time left to support the project, and make it grow more and better, providing more patrons. After thoses impulses, I am working even harder to finish the record until the last detail.

I have the sensation to undress. It feels a bit violent letting see the entrails of such an intimate process, but I see an opportunity in this initiative, beyond the simple search for fundings, to explain where I am in this moment, and to commit myself to a record where I am exposed like never before.

I felt I needed to express myself differently after publishing almost three years ago my first album as The Folding and the Point. The instrumental approach made way to the lyrics, and the individual and solitary work seduced me less than opening up to the collaboration with others. I wanted the music to be more personal and more collective at the same time.

With this change of direction, a new name for the project quickly had to came up and I’ll now sign this music under the name of TERRITOIRE, a concept as open as extremely strong. Sonically, drums, silence and voices were my starting points, and on this base I started to invite more musicians.

The challenge hasn’t always been easy for lots of my partners, not used to work on music of experimental approach, and I feel very fortunate to have gotten so many to join me for the adventure.

I am eternally grateful to you: my friends from McEnroe Edu (drums), Gonzalo (guitars) y Ricardo (voice), Miren Iza (Tulsa, voice), Maite Arroitajauregi (Mursego, cello), Sara Galán (cello), Javier Monserrat (Monserrat, El Hijo, Litoral, double-bass), Angel Mancebo (Ann Deveria, bass), Greg Gobel (Tripulante y Crucero, Marcus Doo, clarinet), Edu Comelles (sound design), Miguel Marin (Arbol, percussion) and Santiago Latorre (saxophone).

We recorded material over the last two years in all conditions, traveling and fitting everyone’s schedules between Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Bilbao and Eibar. Later on, with the addition of Abel Hernández (ex Migala, El Hijo) as co-producer, the process took shape, culminating in January with a three days recording session in Bilbao.

We spent five more months producing and pre-mixing the material, preparing everything for the final mixes, which took place earlier this month of June at the Estudio Uno in Madrid with the engineer Pablo Pulido.

In the end, ‘Mandorle’ —the title of the record— has been a big part of my life and my obsession during those two years. Today I feel exhausted, but the effort was worth it because the journey has opened for me great musical perspectives.

I hope you enjoy it also. I think the music of ‘Mandorle’, although still experimental, has entry points for connecting with many emotions.


With this campaign I seek to raise 1,200€. This represents one third of the total costs, and what I need to finish the work: mastering and manufacturing. The master will be made by Taylor Deupree (12k), and we will make 300 copies of the record, only on CD. As for the rewards, the shirts and the posters will be screen printed by hand by the graphic designer Alejandro Masferrer.


If the objective is exceeded, the surplus money will be used to cover the remainder of the mixes (460€), which I’m paying by installments, and to rent another half-day at the studio to make a few last changes (150€). The rest will also be invested into current tasks such as a lighting design for the concerts and a video for the central track of the record.

‘Mandorle’ will be published after the spanish heat, in october, on my label Envelope Collective.

I sincerely hope that you will be interested by the adventure of TERRITOIRE. I am here for you.

Thank you,

Conseguir el objetivo en tan poco tiempo fue una experiencia realmente emocionante. Superarlo de tal manera es totalmente inesperado y os estoy profundamente agradecido por haber apoyado con tanta generosidad la iniciativa. Me siento ahora con una presión nueva, especial, y una motivación tremenda para terminar y seguir el proyecto. De verdad, más allá del dinero, gracias por el subidón.
