I am currently involved in different music projects: an electronic composition project in collaboration with Osk in London, Bruits De La Conversation (Paris-Clamecy), and some collaborations with Franck Alba (London). You can check the music of the different projects !! Hope you like it !!



I am a French soprano / tenor saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer of electronic music and jazz, writing electronic tracks exploring eclectic beats and a wide array of sounds and influences. In London I keep developing further more my collaboration with Spanish electronic musician, producer and composer OSK (Oskar Vizan). After releasing two solo albums under the name of Etmo, (the DVD album Etmo, and the album "In the Desert"), my main electronic project to continue further explorations is currently my collaboration with Osk. Following our first album 'Silver Liquid', I've invited Osk to record some new materials, this time we both brought our electronics beats to give different inspiration to our work. Through improvisation, we create tracks real time, live. We 've recorded a new album The Jungle District, where this time is approached the theme of the big futuristic cosmopolitan city where nature reasserts itself. We create spoken words in English and Chinese (the voice of the Taiwanese Yen Yi Wu), and vocals parts too, all of which are part of our signature. Osk is the producer Master ! We found a really nice way of working together, managing to mix so many music influences.We 've started to perform this new music live, in different places and events, among them, some London music venues like The Conway Hall, Cafe 1001, the summer Festival 48eme de Rue with Stephane Malenfant's visuals :) Check our live performance video's above !!

INTERVIEW : The making of the album Silver Liquid



I am a French soprano / tenor saxophonist, Clarinetist and composer of electronic music and jazz.
I started to get into electronic sounds playing live with various DJs, then I 've written my own electronic compositions exploring eclectic beats and a wide array of sounds and influences, includimg snippets from field recordings and recycled voices of friends and family. I 've called this musical exploration ‘From Ka’lei’ (ka’lei, Greek root of the word Kaleidoscope) to summarise my approach with live electronic performances in general and as well as with studio compositions.
I ‘ve played live under the name of Etmo 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". Above on the right inside!! 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…).
"In the Desert" came out in April 2010, check above in the middle.
The Album "Silver Liquid" is my first collaboration with Osk under the project name Etmo meets Osk, check it above on the left!
My electronic project to continue further explorations is currently a collaboration with Spanish electronic composer and producer Osk (Oskar Vizan).


I 've performed as well in London with the singer and guitar player Franck Alba (Piano Magic, The Fire Flies).
I 've formed the music project, Bruits de la Conversation "Les Retrouvailles", with Map aka Olivier Lagodzki (trombone, accordion, vocals, percussion and electronics) based in Paris-Clamecy. Check the music for these projets below on this page !!




J'ai formé le projet de musique acoustique et électronique, Bruits De La Conversation, avec mon ami musicien de longue date, Map aka Olivier Lagodzki ( trombone, accordéon, chant, percussions et électronique), avec lequel j'ai partagé plusieurs aventures musicales dans le passé. Après une première version acoustique et jazz de Bruits De La Conversation " Les Retrouvailles " (voir vidéos plus bas), le projet se mue en trio en 2015, avec la venue de Kirtan aka Christophe Roux dit Riche (Guitare acoustique, Voix). Bruits De La Conversation, constitué du trio Etmo-Map-Kirtan aborde un répertoire très vaste aux influences sonores multiples (chanson, jazz, gypsy music, rock, folk, punk, électronique, psychédelique, dub, électro-acoustique, bruitiste.... ) et affirme un son original, explorant des classiques de la chanson française, espagnole, et anglosaxonne, dans un forma hybride qui laisse autant la place aux voix, aux textes, qu' aux improvisations ou écritures instrumentales. Les effects sonores électroniques complètent le son général de ce collectif qui chante-joue ses standards de la chanson, au sens très large du terme" standards", dépassant les clivages jazz, rock, chanson, bal.
C'est à Clamecy en Bourgogne, dans la Yourte du Pont Picot de Map aka Olivier Lagodzki, que Bruits De La Conversation a fait plusieurs séries d'apéro-concerts cette année, immergeant le public dans son univers sonore; partageant une aventure musicale sans frontières; réminiscence et création entrelacées, et le plaisir de voyager dans l'espace temps par le son, le texte. Vous avez les morceaux au dessus!

I formed the project of acoustic and electronic music called Bruits De La Conversation, with a longtime friend musician of mine, Map aka Olivier Lagodzki (trombone, accordion, vocals, percussion and electronics), with whom I shared many musical adventures in the past. After a first acoustic jazz version of the band (see videos below), the project turns into a trio with the arrival of Kirtan aka Christophe Roux dit Riche (Acoustic Guitar, Vocals). Bruits De La Conversation as a trio Etmo- Map-Kirtan performs a wide repertoire with multiple sound influences (chanson, jazz, gypsy music, rock, folk, punk, electronic, psychedelic, dub, electro-acoustic, ....) and develops an original sound, exploring some French song classic, Spanish song, and Anglo-Saxon song, in a hybrid form which leaves as much room for voice, text, than the instrumental writing and improvisations. Electronic sound effects enhance the overall sound of the band, playing "standards", surpassing jazz, rock, song, dance cleavages ...
It was in Clamecy in Burgundy, in the Yurt of Map aka Olivier Lagodzki that, Bruits De La Conversation made a series of concerts this year, immersing the audience into its sound; sharing a musical adventure without boundaries; reminiscence and creation intertwined; the pleasure of travelling in the time space by the sound, the words. Check the music above !
