About Anklepants

Reecard Farché (aka Anklepants) is an Australian born convict, multi instrumentalist, instrument builder, and solo member of Anklepants.
With the premiere album under the Anklepants alias ‘Pl-easkill’ in 2004 on Reecard’s own QWERTY RECORDS imprint, first taking to the stage in 2008, Reecard’s prolific genre dismantling sonic output has since spanned no short of 20 recordings. With Reecard’s first 12 inch ‘insideyourfacedubstepbeanstalktoheavenfortheatheist’ in 2011 on
UK label interact records, several more 12’s following, most recently “Pollen” on IDM label Detroit Underground in 2018.
Finally heading to the beckoning finger of the motherlands, in 2009 Reecard relocated to Europe. Farché rose to world wide notoriety at Boiler Room in Berlin, June 2014, following that year with a release alongside artists such as Jochen Arbeit of Einstürzende Neubauten.
Over a decade of performances in Australia, Europe, North and South America soon followed. Dates at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. To follow was Reecard’s 3rd Headlining national tour of North America, seeing Anklepants billed alongside artists such as Aphex Twin,
John Carpenter and Björk at the legendary Day For Night Festival
in Houston Texas. Farché caught the attention of Conan O’brien,
and also performed live on the notorious Adult Swim show Bloodbath and more recently a string of dates in South America in 2019.
At the heart of Reecard’s ever evolving live-show has been the the
focus of the Anklepants project since the introduction of the first custom microphone in 2008, alongside Reecard’s psychedelic vocal personas, custom sonic tools, known for a vast array of vocal personas, is the heavily engineered selfbuilt, hardware/software instrument system
know as ‘facé_control’.
Currently on its fifth iteration, the input control system, ‘facé_control_suit’ and the ‘facé_control_5’ microphone work together to capture body movements such as back angle, finger and hand movements, footsteps
& heart rate to drive effects modulations, for voice and beat manipulations, looping vocals, and body movements, triggering sounds and arrangements, as-well as acting as a feedback device in the form of mechanical movements and light.
Onstage Reecard is able work amidst an augmented reality, turning the space on and around Farché, into a multi dimensional instrument with over 50 simultaneous hi resolution wireless inputs, allowing for seemingly unlimited real time improvisation and experimentation options, in many ways allowing Reecard to access more limbs than are physically available.
Shortly before leaving Germany in 2014, Reecard released the Ep titled ‘Santur improvisation (Şur)’ a solo improvised album using only the Persian Santur tuned to the Maqam Şur, which would pave the way for all material to follow working with Non 12EDO tunings.
The long awaited ’Memory loss after incarnation’ still to be released, features further work with Maqam’s, much of the material born during Reecard’s time living in Neukölln Berlin. Not unlike the 2012 double 12 inch ‘Social patching and the pixel pageant facéd boy’ Reecard turning to Oud, Saz but further expanding into more ancient harmonic landscapes.
2019 Saw the release of Anklepants ninth full length album ‘Ocker’ a collection of recording’s dating back to 2005, with a cover of ‘His Box’
by Post-Punk art rock Duo Dalis Car, which disclosed a flash of Reecard Farché’s past with more conventional song writing and vocal performances.
A notable collaboration in 2019 on a cover of British progressive rock legend ‘Gentle Giant’s Epic ‘Proclamation’ featuring Reecard’s human form vocals, along side the pop electronic stylings of EDM producer ‘Mr Bill’.
Farché continues recordings on the album that will follow yet to be named, featuring harmonic content transcribed from the song & communications of birds and other Australian animals, all of which have been leaking into Reecard’s live shows in more recent years.
Several new acoustic and electronic instruments are well under way. The ‘facé_control_teeth’ a tooth percussion instrument.
The ‘Reecard farché intonarumori’ an elaborate hybrid dc motor/breath controlled string instrument.
The newest ‘facé_control’ microphone ‘facé_control_6’ which expands the current input count of 25, to around 100 outputs on the microphone alone.
The new ‘facé_control_suit’ also adding to the previous input control adding shoulder granular controllers, the expanded ‘facé_control_shoe’ building on the original by adding heel input and angle input to each foot.
Also 3 new mechanical characters yet to be disclosed, all of which will gradually find their ways to albums and stages over the next few years as Reecard Farché continues to abstract and challenge what is übérgründé.
