The Gambler is a Parisian music composer and live performer of electronic music, mainly playing techno genres. Most his tracks use unique samples (recorded often from his own apartment or various places), complex programmed effects, and weird programs downloaded from the internet. It is not rare that he would include a natural, unplugged instrument, standing aside the most artificial of sounds. This duality and completeness is very important for his work.
Gifted with relative pitch and trained in music school from the age of 7, he has learned to play the guitar and started composing his own guitar songs when he got to middle school. At that time he got involved for the first time with music production on computer. In high school, he was playing in a metal band, playing the electric guitar. When he got to university, he switched again, playing didgeridoo, djembe and jew's harp in a local association, as well as performing in local festival. At 20, he switched again to music production on computer, starting with more serious software and gear. His main is reason is that computer music is the only way to be able to play all the instruments.
All those different musical moments have given him a rich musical background, and a wide range of influences, including classical music that he listens to a lot. While focusing mainly on electronic music, he has produced more than a hundred tracks, most of them unpublished, forging a consistent knowledge of electronic music production and handling different techniques of production. He has also composed songs for piano, harp, violin, guitar, etc... Entirely self taught for computer music, his approach is more driven by feelings than logic when it comes to production. He focuses on deep, melodic and sometimes more "minimalistic" techno. It's been two years that he has focused on techno with 2 EP and 3 remixes in 2011, and one remix and one EP in 2012. Starting with underground paries in 2011, he started performing in local bars, then clubs, in 2012.
