The Chrysalis (“Chrysalide” in French) is the second growth’s stage of a butterfly before it becomes adult. This is exactly what this EP is: the first official release of the artist’s attempt to blend the pure sound of an acoustic piano with the evocative power of the synthesizer and other electronic instruments, in order to create an original and deeply personal musical texture. Whether he uses the piano as a classical instrument, as a drum kit or a bass, it remains the underlying theme of each composition. This new release is neither purely modern classical or electronic, but a bit of both, as the genre wasn’t a decisive aspect of the project. Instead, the composer decided to focus on the experimentation process of the musical creation to reconnect with the pure joy and fun happening behind every creative process.
