Working on new music and several projects, a big shift from any productions I did in the past. For now it feels that the songwriting can do without the electronics and the electronics can do without the song-form. I give myself no deadlines but it's time to let some music out. Meanwhile, I will be posting only releases and events on this page. Follow me on Instagram if you want to know what I've been up to.
'Apparitions' is a video I made. Every morning in my house, for few minutes the sun hit a piece of plexiglass leaning by the stairs, creating reflections of all sort. Once I swear I saw a horse on the doorstep. I filmed the reflections for several morning. They felt like apparitions to me. Images that would animate the room for a minute before disappearing. While editing I remembered a quote from a Joseph Campbell’s book “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
Here's a new Spotify playlist I made inspired by Lad Vegas. With my favorite crew in the world we went to Vegas for a 24h escapade. Pyramids, books half read, Johnny Depp & Robert De Niro impersonators, the real Elton John in the The Caesar Palace's hall looking like an Elton John impersonator. The face of Jesus on a burned toast. The Colosseum and Eiffel Tower separated only by neon lights. Morning miracles & never ending desert drives. I hope you enjoy!
This is a collection of songs that were recorded between 2010 & 2012 and never officially released. Some of the tracks were video-only, some other were hidden in my hard drive. It was a very important time for me. This was before touring Europe and US with a record to promote. It was a time where I locked myself in my room with few instruments and a mic taped on a stand. I gave myself a rule to composed and record a song in a day. No thrills, no over-arranging, no time to delete the little mistakes that most of the time makes a track special. I hope you enjoy it!
This trip to Rome felt like an emergency landing. Despite everything I managed to connect with friends and see part of the countryside around the city, the 6pm orange sun, sheeps, ruins and a thousand questions my heart can't answer. Back to California now...I made a playlist for the plane. (The image is by Paula Rego)
