Behind Hyperculte lie Simone Aubert (Massicot) and Vincent Bertholet (Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp). She whacks her drums with pinpoint precision while he tames his double bass, making it thrum in a continuous loop, and together, they hum repetitive and inspired litanies. The result is a hypnotic ball of fire that is contemplative and extraordinarily powerful. Hyperculte unites the urgency and audacity of Liquid Liquid, the experimentations of Arthur Russell, the unabashed turbulence of Neu! and Can, the delirious pop music of Areski and something ethereal and incantatory from the depths of the breeding grounds of existence.
