Arthur Hnatek — Mille Feuille

Arthur Hnatek and Taut Mille Feuille

 

Possessed of a waltz-like lilt not often found in electronic music, Mille-Feuille revolves around simple melodic figures and nimble drums. It’s many layers of percussion, performed programmed and manipulated, recall the percussive jangles favored by producers like Four Tet and Bonobo. Strings and synths swell and recede until the childlike, pentatonic motif ultimately gives way to a majestic, rising melody.

 

Arthur Hnatek and Taut (aka Jacob Bergson) first met as university students in New York, over a decade ago. Best known for their sideman work, with the likes of Tigran Hamasyan, Erik Truffaz, Kimbra and Jojo Mayer/Nerve, they both experienced parallel slides into the world of electronic music production. Individualists both instrumentally and compositionally, their converging interests made collaboration increasingly inevitable.
