Today we celebrate the official release of Joni Void’s second Constellation LP Mise En Abyme, a deeply personal and sonically riveting exploration of plunderphonic electronics. Joni Void is the creative moniker of Montréal-based artist Jean Cousin, and with Mise En Abyme he’s solidified his position as one of the most compelling and innovative figures in contemporary electronic music. Blending the digital and organic in a truly singular manner, Cousin’s deft audio collages are essential listening for fans of experimental electronics and groundbreaking new sound.

Early praise for Mise En Abyme:


“A profoundly sad and affecting collage of memory and longing, ghostly torch songs half-buried in the claustrophobic electronic clatter of the modern world.” – MOJO Underground Column (****)

 
“[Joni Void] is a mutant breed of the best kind: a ramshackle, (r)evolutionary producer with a unique knack for bringing together various strands of film and foley sounds, beat and voice sampling, and lost and found objects to create warm, unorthodox sonic turns.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
 
 
“If Mise En Abyme places Cousin in the void, he’s using his time there to register his own humanity and strengthen his resolve, making sense of the world through selective erasure and curation.” – Exclaim! (9/10)
 
 
“Simultaneously absorbing and disturbing, “Dysfunctional Helper” features found sound and a female voice layered and layered, into a track that builds powerfully to create an introspective kind of beauty.” – Get Into This
