These songs are maybe my greatest songs done between 2010 and 2011.
I realesed them first in single track. Then lately I compiled them in this EP.

The Artwork has been done in collaboration with Annamundi (we make such a good team together, she has skills and great taste).
The first song is a very blended ambient song, an introduction with voice spoken that talk about freedom and the trap of the virtual world mixed with a very juicy sound design and saxophone.Then comes a beat that is totally influenced by Irish roots but in an electronic punchy version. The end of the song returns to an ambient mood very quiet but totally different than the introduction.
The second song is an experience of puzzles made of two different rythms (try to tap the ground with your feet during the 2.30 first minutes, you’ll see how it is), then the beat gets more accessible.The song ends on the very last part by a large “delay” electronic sounds that support a pretty nice saxophone with a huge “reverb“.
As “Once upon a tear” ends, the third song begin. Same kind of effect and sax and a spoken voice done with a “cadavre exquis“. Then come an arpeggio of piano and sad strings that bring you to the beat. The song brings you from space to the ground until the sax plays again.
The end is done between space music and industrial ambient and then fade away.
“The screen light” starts by the voice of my friend Barbara Wolfsong and continue with a wood sound played with the Akai EWI4400s. After the beat explored a drop wet athmosphere, a deep melody brings you to a very romantic arpeggio of strings.
This song was a gift for the sixty years old of Barbara.
“Focus” is the last song of the EP. It starts with a saxophone and a spoken voice of a man and a woman. The whole song is about modified state of consciousness done by hypnosis or drugs or both.
Then comes a piano strangly inspired by CUBAN sad songs; the piano fades to a large reverb arpeggio and then the sax is properly in. The rythm makes waves between close hihat and dry kicks.
The chords of piano come back and the song seems to get away while the saxophone is tenderly crying.
The harmony that make the end of that piece is a very dark blend of sounds… noises of machines come and go.. and it’s finish.
Let’s listen … you won’t regret.. the sound is huge and the work appears clearly.
