Premier EP de Lembe Lokk « comment te traduire »

WHAT AND WHY ?

 

HELP TO RELEASE my first EP « COMMENT TE TRADUIRE ». The live recording is almost finished, the mix and mastering are about to start, and a collector book with texts and images is being created!!!! THANK YOU!!

 

NB! I hope my english is good enough, I do my best to make my original french presentation understandable for a larger cercle of actual or future friends and audience.

 

SO.

It's been a year I've been working on my new songs, alone, with obsession and exaltation, changing a line for 500 times, looking for the right word indefinitely, practicing the guitare chords even in the train, even in front of a movie!

 

These songs are in french. I tell you because I'm estonian, but this time I wanted to explore this language, these sounds, this poetry.

 

During this year I did many concerts, in houses, appartments, balconies, gardens, and even in real venues, festivals, parcs and forests. In France, Germany, US: it was a beautiful year and your enthousiasm and support brought me to this recording.

 

I decided to record my songs as they sound at my gigs: with simple arrangements and live, no cheating. To translate this rare and fragile thing, the relation between two people, the life as it comes.

 

I dare, you dare, we dare.

 

Thanks to YOU I dared this simplicity and it's for you that I recorded my songs.

 

WITH WHOM AND HOW ?

I'm happy and proud to have managed to gather a team as loving as professional. I waited for long time in the dark, not knowing who to chose, and then suddenly it was crystal clear, with no doubt, like a puzzle finally done.

 

KARSTEN HOCHAPFEL: an extraordinary musician I contacted to play cello and who also brought in portuguese guitar, banjo, electric guitare and bass. Very sensitive and talented, I know and admire him since long and I'm extremely happy to share my songs with him !

MALCOLM CRESPIN, artistic co-director who helped me out when I was in doubt and who saw first what I didn't see yet. He helped me first to jump from the bridge and to swim.

AMBROISE BORET, sound engineer, incredibly precise and sensitive.

VINCENT JULIEN PIOT alias VJP, old friend and admired artist. He created my first website and first disc-package, and we have even done music together. I'm happy he was inspired by my songs and accepted to do the visual artwork.

WHO AM I

To whom don't know me, I'm an estonian fallen in love with the french language since long. Lembe Lokk.

I'm also a singer (Gjaar Project, IN.O.U.I, European Jazz connection, Pandemonium, Rouge Madame). I sing indie pop, but I have also sang jazz in the clubs, baroque in the churches, french chansons in the street and contemporary music on some beautiful european stages. I'm composer, songwriter and I mostly sing my own songs I write in estonian, french and english languages. (The present EP is in french)

 

I also play contemporary theatre pieces as actress and sometimes compose and record music for theatre and art-videos.

 

My poems and other texts have been published in a book recueil « ces longues mues » by Editions Rafael de Surtis (France) and various literary magazines.

 

I only do things that seem essential to me.

WHERE

We recorded the six songs in live conditions in the Studio BKLEX à Montreuil 93. In one very long but beautiful and sreine day.

We rehearsed in Nemours and Bagnolet, in our kitchens and living rooms, in the middle or our kid's screeming and in the silence of my white sleepless nights.

 

We still need to do the mix and mastering and then finish the packaging (between Paris and Berlin). And then print the THING. The THINGS: the disc and the book

Last but not least.
