Toy-metal demo tapes…

One can’t be always serious…

so I’ve just decided to invent the Toy-Metal, a computer version of metal with my new Berlin band L’Hiver des Innocents.

Somewhere between lo-fi and a cheap video game soundtrack…

My first tracks as singer as well… 🙂

In this work, I propose four different ways to interpret minimalism as a music composition concept/process. It’s not the simplest music album to listen to, but I do think it’s really another side of music minimalism to discover…
