It's a well-known fact that millipedes, though frequently referred to as "thousand leggers", actually have no more than 750 legs, usually way less. Correspondingly, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the band Le Millipede is actually just one guy -- who happens to play a whole lot odifferent instruments with his own two hands. He goes by the name Mathias Gotz. Arranging various layers opiano, xylophone and glockenspiel, stylophone, Moog and harmonium, Le Millipede creates minimalist, instrumental pop gems, tracks with an immediate quality that seem rather simple at first listen. In fact, Gotz's recordings are somewhat comparable to the work oFrench-born, Barcelona-based composer Pascal Comelade, known for his use otoy instruments. In both cases, there's a certain childlike quality at work, a very disarming greenness and naivete. Whereas Comelade often uses toy piano, Gotz is particularly fond othe CASIO VL Tone mini-keyboard; and even though most people will associate said instrument with Trio's "Da Da Da" single, Gotz actually considers it a nod to artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Arvo Part, and Moondog. In order to create the intricate beats o"Le Millipede", he used a vast range opercussion instruments: maracas, claves, darbuka, seashells, mbira (thumb piano), davul, zils/finger cymbals, small bells, caxixi, and even mules' teeth, occasionally joined by layers otom-tom drums, snare, bass drum, cymbals. Another key element oLe Millipede's sound is certainly the way Gotz employs his voice: instead oforegrounding it and focusing on literal messages, he merely adds his vocal layers as yet another instrument. Last but not least, there's the trombone: An instrument that's probably the most obvious hint at Mathias Gotz's background -- namely the fact that he actually studied jazz trombone and composition (after having learned how to build brass instruments as an apprentice). And yet, his musical approach, tastes and skills are so wide-ranging and eclectic that apart from recording as Le Millipede, he currently also plays in bands as diverse as Micha Acher's Alien Ensemble, the Munchner Hochzeitskapelle, the Unterbiberger Hofmusik as well as various big bands. Having released an EP he recorded with Robert Alonso as RoBErT GoEtZ in 2007, "Le Millipede" is Mathias Gotz's debut full-length.
