Pluie/Noir Podcast is a bi-monthly audio-visual episode representing our work as an artist collective. Each episode will feature a one hour collage/mix by one of our producers/djs and a poster triptych by one of our designers. 
We interviewed both artists and dropped some questions about their vision:
How are you feeling lately? 
It's a great pleasure to have you as our second release in the imprint. How do you feel about it? 
I feel happy and pleased about this project, like a great medieval fight has been won. It's always challenging and inspirational when you create sound that you haven't done before as an artist.
What inspired you for this podcast and how did you record it? 
I wanted to create a soundscape, an extension of the EP itself. I've been collecting musique concrete works and lots of oddities that I find more than interesting, so it was natural to go in this direction with the podcast's sound. The stuff I used to record was the standard stuff, 2 CD players and 2 turntables.
There's a retro-futuristic vision on your podcast. How do you feel about it?
Plans for the next year? 
Lots! I'm working on a couple of remixes which I'm pretty excited about and maybe in the near future start working on the bases of an album.
Mr. Binski. How are you? 
Tired but happy, as ever.
What have you been doing lately? 
Working like a raging beast on design and music, starting some new collaborations with other labels and graphic studios, doing my first album and organizing the first international pluie/noir art gallery.
You've started some adventures with painting. Is it an entirely new ground?
I studied design in college, so that was the first proper chance I had with paintings (I studied sciences in high-school). Last year I took a chance and started buying canvas, experimenting with acrylic, brushes, palettes.. so far I'm enjoying it and discovering a new highway for personal & artistic expression.
What can you tell us about the paintings you did for Vlad Caia's release?
The first time I heard Vlad Caia's demos for the release I imagined something geometric vs. organic, natural yet patterned. When he named the release Swan Lake I though that doing a swan could be cliché, but maybe going straightforward with an edge could also be interesting. So I picked 2 palettes and two canvas, and started drawing two different swans on different perspectives. I painted both canvas with my hands, doing very little use of paint-brushes, and also spreading the ink with a ruler. The result turned out quite layered and expressive, just like Vlad's music for the EP.
Plans for 2013? 
Building my own audio & graphic studio. I'll be happy and creative. 
Also want to finish my album for a very special pluie/noir sub-project, with squared painting interpretations for each track... and more!
