Ichos is a highly successful track, produced by Muriel Louveau and Charles B. Kim.  

The piece is genuinely crafted and surprisingly accessible.  Louveau applies her trademark of richly ambient vocal resonances, sung in a way that propels the song forward in continuum, supported by Kim's pulsating suspended harmonics with mood altering soundscape.  Kim also utilizes different plays on tone color, sound spectrum, and instrumental layering to create a thick backdrop for Louveau's exotic lyrics.

This is one of the tracks that clearly defines this duo's current musical language.

Muriel Louveau is a French composer, performance-maker, and singer. She writes "contemporary medieval music"- and creates her own imaginary language. "my songs drive us into a cosmopolitan space and time somewhere at the crossroad of the other languages" explains Louveau
Festivals and International events include those in the USA, New York (Next Wave Festival, BAM, Le Poisson Rouge , Irving Plaza), Conservatory of Peabody Baltimore (2009 and 2012),SKIFF 2002 in St Petersburg, French spring 2007 festival (Latvia ), Europe XXL 2009 Lille 3000 (France).
 Muriel's songs have been broadcasted on BBC 3 and WNYC Radios. Recent collaborative projects include: EDDA, a multi media event with the English artist Holly Warburton (Paris )
and at table, a musical reenactment of a painting  with Ann Marie Lequesne( London). 
She is promoting and staging the music of Skana, a CD entirely produced in cyber space with american composer Charles B Kim (Performance/Work in progress "Skana and More" featured in NYC at Galapagos Art Space in Sept 2011 in collaboration with American dancer choreographer Emily Pope Blackman).

"Louveau's music here is a mature display of artistry, drawing global and historical influence not bound my time or modes, but rather surpassing those requirements preset by the music industry. Louveau sounds lines with long vocal phrases, fine production mixes, and areas focusing on eclectic and sensual passages. One hears a bit of Gregorian, Middle East, African, and Gothic influences,(Dead can Dance , Lisa Gerrard) all molded into one accessible style."
