INTERVIEW : The making of the album Silver Liquid

ETMO MEETS OSK

Back to Europe, in London I got the chance to develop further more my collaboration with Spanish electronic musician, producer and composer OSK (Oskar Vizan). Etmo meets Osk is currently my main electronic project to continue further explorations. I invited Osk to record a second live album in the South of France last spring, we got our second album on the way now :) It should be ready sometimes soon. This new recording features much more up-tempo beats comparing to our first album 'Silver Liquid', bringing new atmosphere and dynamics to our live set. We started to perform live in London, we played at the Conway Hall (Hot Noise) in London and at the Cafe 1001 with Stephane Malenfant's live visuals :) Check the videos above !

BRUITS DE LA CONVERSATION "LES RETROUVAILLES"

Quand j'étais à Taiwan, j'ai eu la surprise de retrouver Olivier Baron, un ami bugliste de jazz et compositeur. Avec lui et son épouse multi-instrumentiste Wei-Ying Chou, j'ai commencé à jouer de nouveau un répertoire de jazz acoustique, ainsi que des versions instrumentales de chansons françaises et espagnoles. De retour en Europe, j'ai demandé à mon ami MAP aka Olivier Lagodzki (accordéon, trombone, chant) de monter un groupe ensemble à Paris pour redécouvrir et explorer un répertoire de classiques de la chanson française et espagnole. Cette musique appartient à la mémoire collective de beaucoup de personnes et notamment de migrants venus s'établir en France, et nous faisons partie d'entre eux, de sorte que nous l'embrassons !! Nous avons réussi à enrôler deux vieux amis musiciens de Marseille, qui ont eux-même collaborés avec Olivier Baron dans le passé, et qui sont aujourd'hui basés à Paris : SPIRAL VOICE aka Nicolas Calvet (Tuba, Chant) et BRAKA (Batterie, Chant).

When I was in Taiwan, I got the surprise to meet again with an old friend of mine, the flugelhorn jazz player and composer, Olivier Baron. I started to play again some acoustic jazz and instrumental French and Spanish songs with him and his wife Wei-Ying Chou (piano, clarinet, saxes). Back to Europe, I asked my dear friend MAP aka Olivier Lagodzki (Accordion,Trombone, Vocal) to built up a band together in Paris to rediscover and explore a repertoire of classic French and Spanish songs. This music belongs to the collective memory of so many people including migrants who came to settle in France, and we are part of them, so we embrace it! Luckily we managed to get on board two old friends musicians from Marseille who are currently based in Paris, SPIRAL VOICE aka Nicolas Calvet (Tuba, Vocal) and BRAKA (Drums, Vocal). Contacts

INTRODUCTION:

I am a soprano / tenor saxophonist and composer from France, I was based in London for more than 10 years. I ‘ve moved to Taipei City (Taiwan) for a year and a half, and I am now back to Europe.
Etmo meets Osk
is currently my main electronic project and I continue my music exploration with Spanish electronic composer, performer, and producer Osk (Oskar Vizan), who is based in London.
I started to get into electronic sounds some years ago. I first started playing live with various DJs. I enjoy working in an electronica field. I am writing tracks exploring eclectic beats and a wide array of sounds and influences. I like to include in my tunes snippets from field recordings and recycled voices of friends and family. I used to call this musical exploration ‘From Ka’lei’ (ka’lei, Greek root of the word Kaleidoscope) to summarise the approach I have with live electronic performances in general and as well as with studio compositions.
I ‘ve been playing my compositions live with a changing line-up of collaborators including Mauro Cassavetz: Electronics + FX, keyboard, vocal, melodica and/or Oskar Vizan on laptop and FX, (previously I've been playing with Sio B'baas). I perform live playing soprano, tenor saxes, clarinet, ethnic flutes, percussion, kaos pad.
In May 2004 I have released and produced my first album ETMO "From Ka’lei". It is now distributed on line by Fotone records. It includes a DVD which is an interactive creation with 7 visual artists. At the same time, I’ve also featured on various electronic releases and collaborated with several musicians and bands in London (Franck Alba, Echoccult, Architeq, Eyelead, Pulsar, Cassavetz…).
My second album In the Desert came out in April 2010.
In 2011 in Taipei City (Taiwan), I met Olivier Baron (Flugelhorn), an old friend jazz musician and with his band, I started to perform some acoustic jazz again.
Back to the South France from 2012, I keep travelling regularly to London where I continue my collaboration with Osk.
In the same time I re-started to perform with the singer and guitar player Franck Alba (Piano Magic, The Fire Flies), and Dani Cali with the songs based project called KaliAlba. As well in Paris, I just formed the acoustic music project, Bruits de la Conversation "Les Retrouvailles", with Map aka Olivier Lagodzki (Accordion, Trombone, vocal), Spiral Voice aka Nicolas Calvet (Tuba, Vocal), Braka (Drums, Vocal). The band performs French, Spanish popular songs.
