Foux : Réalisation de mon premier EP

<p>Hi everyone, I am <strong>Foux, </strong>I am <strong>26</strong> and I am very excited to present you this project concerning my upcoming <strong>soft electronic EP</strong> in December. </p><p> </p><p><img alt="Screen_shot_2017-10-12_at_00.00.27-1507762938" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/457584/Screen_Shot_2017-10-12_at_00.00.27-1507762938.png"></p><p> </p><p>At the age of <strong>4</strong> I accomplished my first goal and <strong>started playing the piano</strong>. I was trained classical until the age of <strong>16</strong> before uploading my first <strong>piano covers </strong>to <strong>Youtube</strong>. After completing my scientific french baccalaureate I went to Canada to study geology. My first <strong>Youtube video</strong> was a piano cover of <strong>Ocean</strong> by <strong>John Butler</strong> which he instantly shared onto his <strong>Facebook</strong> page. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><iframe src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FqKrwCPQLf54%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DqKrwCPQLf54&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FqKrwCPQLf54%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540" height="304" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p><p> </p><p>While completing my engineering Master in the Netherlands, I spent a lot of time on the piano preparing a cover of <strong>Down the Road</strong> from <strong>C2C. </strong>The video was instantly shared on the band's <strong>Facebook page</strong>. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><iframe src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FlsQG9z2lBwk%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DlsQG9z2lBwk&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FlsQG9z2lBwk%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540" height="304" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p><p> </p><p>After being hired by a large Norwegian oil company, I left the Netherlands for Stavanger. In order to spice up my lonely evenings I decided to buy <strong>Logic</strong>, <strong>my first music production software</strong>. Thanks to this new tool, I was able to <strong>mix different sounds</strong> along with the piano. This enabled me to release covers of <strong>Petit Biscuit</strong>, in particular <strong>Sunset Lover</strong> and <strong>You</strong> which were retweeted by the artist himself!</p><p> </p><p><iframe src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FJbp03zfpUUo%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DJbp03zfpUUo&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FJbp03zfpUUo%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540" height="304" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p><p> </p><p>I recently decided to<strong> take a break</strong> in my professional life in order to <strong>dedicate myself to music</strong>. This EP is therefore the accomplishment of a lifelong dream and an in-depth musical research.  </p><p> </p><p><img alt="Screen_shot_2017-10-11_at_12.38.33-1507721945" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/457299/Screen_Shot_2017-10-11_at_12.38.33-1507721945.png"></p><p> </p><p>Releasing an <strong>EP</strong> is expensive! Covered costs include paying the <strong>mixing engineer, </strong>the <strong>mastering engineer</strong>, the <strong>CD manufacturing</strong> and the <strong>press release</strong>, just to name a few. You will find the details in the next section.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Many of you</strong> have been following me from the start and I am extremely grateful for <strong>your support. </strong>A big <strong>THANK YOU </strong>to all of you that will help make this project successful. </p>
