Home / Biography / Amp


Dubbing themselves ‘Trans-European Esoterrorists’, Amp was produced throughout the nucleus of Richard Walker aka Richard Amp (b. Britain) and vocalist Karine Charff (b. France), dealing with a succession of collaborators including Matt Elliot (of Third Eyes Base), Matt Jones (of Crescent), Man Cooper and Gareth Mitchell (of the trick Backyard), Robert Hampson (of Primary), and French programmer Olivier Gauthier. ‘I don’t start to see the globe as an especially happy spot to be in, therefore i prefer to confront that and I take advantage of our music to accomplish so’, preserved Walker, in Melody Machine, upon the discharge from the music group’s 1996 debut Sirenes. More than some enrapturing albums (including a singles collection Passe Present), this ‘representation from the situations’ was manifested by means of sensitive piano statistics, junglist rhythmic clatter, esoteric drones, track remnants of trip-hop, feedback-doused oceanic folk, and echoic tests with bass that produced explicit Walker’s assertion that ‘it’s as interesting hearing abstract sound resources as it would be to music’. Preceded by way of a single packaged within a paper sunflower, the music group’s third studio room record Stenorette (1998) discovered prismatic beauty in looped drones, ambient drift, dislocated vocals and Satie-inspired piano. Walker also, notably, creates music beneath the A.M.P. along with a.M.P. Studio room monikers, the punctuation and suffix codifying the workers mixed up in recordings as well as the circumstances where the recordings were produced.
