A World Of Nature est le premier morceau enregistré lors de ma session avec le Budapest Symphony Orchestra en septembre 2018. L’orchestre est dirigé par François Rousselot et enregistré par Tamás Kurina à Tom Tom Studio Budapest. La harpe est interprétée par Constance du Bellay et enregistrée par Arnaud Delannoy. Un grand merci aux deux formidables solistes (cor et cor anglais) ainsi qu’à Rebeka Drahos, contractor de l’orchestre!

For my last album GUM Tapes / Universal, I challenged myself to compose a piece of music in the style of the light music of the 40s – 50s. “Dogs and Cats” was recorded by six amazing musicians: the string quartet Van Kuijk (Nicolas Van Kuijk, Sylvain Favre-Bulle, Emmanuel François and François Robin), the double-bassist Benoît Dunoyer de Segonzac and the fabulous one-man-band Arnaud Delannoy (clarinet). The music was mixed by Etienne Colin.

On April 6th, 2018, I performed the first augmented concert with the Orchestre d’Harmonie de Levallois, conducted by Vincent Renaud. This project, on which I was working for several years, associates musicians, electronics, videos, voices and lights, and was supported by my publisher, Les Editions l’Octanphare. An amazing experience which ended with the world premiere of my piece Horizons for concert band and electronics.
