[EN] Picture this: in 2010, I was busy playing with several bands, but I had written songs that had never been performed by anyone. Some because they didn’t fit to the style of the band, some that I felt were too personal to be played by anyone else… I decided to end this by recording my first album by myself, playing all the instruments. As the songs had been written throughout my life as a teenager and young adult, I decided to call this album “Youth”. I released it digitally on Bandcamp in 2012, together with videos and visual art for each song. I also decided to publish all of the songs’ scores on sheet music & tabs so people could make some covers. Open-Source Music, in short! 😉
You can see all the details for each song (introduction, lyrics, credits) by clicking on the song titles on my Bandcamp page.
Check out this playlist of the videos I made for each song. For “Where is she?”, I roam the streets of Paris in search of someone… “Wish you looked at me” is a multi-screen/multi-instruments video. “Goodnight” is a cool pencil self-portrait animation and “Tale of two” is a painting timelapse, both created by myself!
My initial idea for this album was to have some visual work (mainly paintings) for each song. Check these out:
