AMERICAN FRENCH NIGHTMARE
How a french band including metal & electro guests (Pilot, Jabberwock, Killbodytuning, Aurélien Ouzoulias…) gives his own vision of Hollywood & suburban legends, delivering an exigent and ecclectic picture of maintitles, cold waves and dark riffs.
Initiated early in musical improvisation piano (10 years of lessons with a famous composer-arranger in the 60’s ) as the 7th art, Antoine Saison quickly married his two loves. Feeding her childhood memories of soundscapes and Series B, he explores all terrains. Only on drums and Roland & Yamaha keyboards, he initiates very quickly different formations – young virtuosos or confirmed – producing music in his bedroom, Lyon and Paris. In the first period, melodic improvisation is the dominant requirement.
A baby’s first sweet name Lycantrop born : 5 songs recorded in 14 intense hours (including drummers, freejazz saxophonist, grooveboxer, noise guitarist & keys), a session overseen by seasoned jazz drummer Daniel Guichon in his own studio.
Barely a year later, still non-commercialized, a personal album of 11 dark instrumental tracks – this time entirely keyboards – is designed under the name Diablo. “Pictures on fire” is more atmospheric, more cinematic too. The base is raised, Elvin Road is born.
4 albums later (broadcast on TV & radios), the french entity is still rising, embracing the unknown with twilight maintitles, cold waves & progressive riffs.
