Qoniak is the encounter of the analog sounds of the machines of Vincent Membrez and the alien drumming of Lionel Friedli. An intense trip to a parallel world where you might encounter both Yoda and Captain Spock on LSD, playing an unrestrained game of Pong.

Sentient Beings

QONIAK's debut album

Feat. Flo Stoffner, guit
& Joy Frempong, vocals
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Julien Fehlmann @ Studio Mécanique, La Chaux-de-Fonds
©2013, Everest Records, ER052

"Sentient Beings" is a yet unidentified object where the duo's crazy experimental avant-garde textures meets the beautiful and unexpected chants of Joy Frempong and the astral soundscapes guitar playing of Flo Stoffner. The quartet bypasses musical boundaries and take you to an intense trip to a parallel world where you might encounter both Yoda and Cpt. Spock under LSD, playing an unrestrained game of Pong.
