ETMO MEETS OSK Live Video
at : The Conway Hall + Cafe 1001
INTERVIEW : The making of the album Silver Liquid
Back to Europe, in London I got the
chance to develop further more my collaboration with Spanish
electronic musician, producer and
(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 !

In London, I had the chance to play
again with my friend singer and guitar player, FRANCK
ALBA (Piano Magic, Fire Flies). We 've done some
gigs under the name of EYELEAD
few years ago. Recently, he 's been collaborating with DANI
CALI (Fire Flies) a great singer and song writer,
playing acoustic guitar and electronics. Together they 've
created their show KaliAlba, a great selection of original
and cover songs, with a fine touch of electronics, including
saxophones, percussion with kaoss pad.

BRUITS DE LA CONVERSATION
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
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). Contacts
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

recording of a serie of live recordings Ive done in
London in Stoke Newington in 2010 with 4
differents musicians I really enjoy playing with : Osk (Oskar

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
Kalei (kalei, 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,
In May 2004 I have released and produced my first album ETMO
"From Kalei". 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, Ive also featured
on various electronic releases and collaborated with several musicians
and bands in London (Franck Alba, Echoccult, Architeq, Eyelead,
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.
