Acharné, meaning 'fierce', 'belligerent' or 'furious' in French, is the experimental, ambient project of producer Rick Bull.
What happens when 'futurism' itself becomes a revisionist trope? Exploring conceptual notions of lost futures, amnesia and non-place, Acharnés hypnagogic meditations invoke liminality, restlessness and 'becoming' without arrival. Deeply influenced by the work of Mark Fisher, John Akomfrah and futurist Kodwo Eshun, the project seeks to engage with the fallout of futures which never came to pass. Where are we now?
Critically lauded by The Guardian and Billboard Magazine, Acharné's "Innocence and Suburbia" album is a fragmented series of sketches and experiments in bastardised contemporary classical, drone and failed noise music.
