Volte Face

2013-04-08 11:26:58 UTC

Volte Face is a French band from Rennes mixing the keen electro sound of the 80s, the aerial vibe of dream pop, to the rock energy. Born in 2011 after Antoine’s solo project, this is the result of his multiple influences. At the university he met Thomas Sourdy, who was regularly involved in the studio sessions. After hearing some of his tracks, Antoine’s entourage presses him to go further and excel, he hires Franck on the drums and the solo project becomes a trio.

Early 2012, they self-produced One Night Alone, Antoine and Thomas produced the video clip. It relates the journey at night of a man in the streets of Rennes, dearest city of the 2 mates. Spring 2012, they take part in the creation of a spilt album with the Post-Rock band [ Corbeaux ]. Last November, “The Meeting Point” was released containing 2 tracks of Volte Face, “Blade Runner” and “In Another Life”.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
