Voilà, the long-awaited new track is here ! And it will take you on a journey, for sure !
I wanted to include exotic influences, a perfume of somewhere else, because I just like it a lot ! So, it's slightly different from the previous tracks, although it contains everything from my signature sound.
I relied less on the guitar parts, and more on the other instruments, as a multi-instrumentalist ! Indeed, I recorded the Flemish dulcimer (a local traditional instrument, I made it sound oriental), bongos (percussion), guitar of course, keyboards, bass, and I programmed the drum parts and used a couple of samples (market/bazaar ambience, kamancheh/iranian string instrument, gong,...).
About the title, is evokes Eastern or Asiatic spiritualities, the expression came to me while listening to the inspiring melodies, almost festive, danceable, yet deeply positive and thoughtful. And this picture of lamps in a Turkish bazaar, it's perfect !
New project on which I started working this summer 2018.
☞ working title : Inner Quests.
Since this summer, I worked on a new project, a follow-up to "Dans les Vapeurs de la Ville". A project to work on this autumn, once installed in my new home studio.
With changes in my personal circumstances, I had and still have conflictual thoughts around nostalgia and other philosophical thoughts on the passing of time, past and future. My first idea was called "Nostalgia War". I modified it for something more positive : Nouvelle Aube "New Dawn". An idea that I find too commonplace and not personal enough. I finally came back to my first idea, more or less, under the name : Inner Quests. A sort of compromise, actually.
I want to put my energy to explore and exorcize my inner conflicts. I want to share them because I know it could make sense for a lot of people.
Better than the word "struggle", I prefer the word "quest", quests like peace of mind, being free from nostalgia and melancholy.
For that, my music will travel from darkness to light, I'll try to move it to more favorable skies by focusing on uplifting the soul through the melodies, which will be at the heart of the music. I'll work my atmospheres to make them more captivating and uplifting. They will accompany my reflections, they will be like everybody's state of mind : sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny.
My final goal is kind of a soundtrack of the mind, through a musical mix between rock, metal, atmospheres, with a touch of electro, indus and urban. I want to offer my listeners a moment to escape, out of time. I want music to be experienced as a moment of inner peace, triggering a great inspiration, a certain idea of freedom.
In order to make your live the experience of creating music, I'll go further with the concept I started with "Dans les Vapeurs..." : in addition to the Twitter timeline which I update daily, my creative sessions will be streamed live thanks to Youtuve live
