French electronic music composer based in London. Downtempo | Ambient | Dark | Orchestral | Alternative | Epic | Experimental. 3 albums released so far.
Hello “Soundclouder” and welcome to my world!
I am an independent electronic music composer in London. I released my two debut albums - "Hemispheres" and "Consumer Spirit" - simultaneously in October 2010. In December 2012, I released my third album "Rise & Fall".
My main passions are electronic music, film music and middle-eastern music.
I compose “concept albums”. I like to use a fairly vast array of influences and moods, ranging from ambient and progressive/experimental atmospheres to more upbeat and ironic tones. My approach is quite “cinematic” in the sense that I usually think of a story, images and then compose the music around it, limiting myself to the chosen concept. The story really drives the sound textures I use.
I am always interested in meeting people of different artistic horizons, whether it is for potential collaboration or just to share artistic experiences and ideas.
I am also looking to form a band and in particular looking for a keyboardist, guitarist and drummer. I’d like the live performance to have as much space as possible for improvisations.
Other forms of collaboration are open, whether you are a singer, or play some other instrument, or if you are film maker.
Offline is cool, online is fake. Music can not be reduced to a set of mp3s!
So feel free to get in touch!
