To release an album today, is a very easy thing to do. But, who still listens to a music album?....we most of the time hear songs from playlists or shuffle stuffs. This album "Venturi, ou la vie sauvage" (Venturi, or wildlife) comes out in a very strange time for music. The album you have in front of you is not a compilation or a forced merger of music, but a snapshot, an outline, a collection of mirrors pieces of our time ... we go from one electronic music style to another without worrying too much about what this may create. There is no apparent stylistic unity and yet, there is a thread that links this album. It chronicles the ups and downs, it may be thoughtful or rather sound absolutely stupid ... it is quiet or disturbed, weird or mainstream, weird and mainstream, electric or cottony...
The essence of this album is purely pop music...as the author is convinced that everyday music, popular music of today (all the songs we hear on mainstream radios) and yesterday IS our unconscious heritage, even if we continue to consciously avoid to hear this music...
See there the testimony of a beatmaker steeped in our modern world, reading and using the most insignificant influences (and even sometimes completely refused) and popular productions.
This album contains old and new materials and have been elaborated between 2009 and 2012.
This is positively made music, full of winks on our absolutely strange and beautiful world.
Take it easy and enjoy!
