AXL OTL Debut E.P.

<p> <strong>From Paris to Berlin</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="D70_9717-8-1479240121" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/368895/D70_9717-8-1479240121.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> I left Paris since 3 years, to create, test, hack, collaborate in various fields such as painting, theatre or danse,</p> <p> 3 years in Berlin to destroy and rebuilt.</p> <p> I quit playing the instruments I've been practicing for many years, guitar and violin, in order to stop reproducing what I learned and start to take some serious risks.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Here is an example of a very lucky collaboration:</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F167397366&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F167397366&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F571863282_1280.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>You can listen a teaser here:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><a href="https://soundcloud.com/axl-otl/pavero-debut-ep-medley/s-C7akG" target="_blank">Pavero Debut EP: extraits</a></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Compose the music I wanted to listen to:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> It happened pretty often while listening some tunes: "I would have loved to be able to compose this one" or even, in a more pretentious way: "I could have compose that one"</p> <p> So when I felt that my tracks started to sound good enough and it was the right time to go to the next step, I decided to create, not a sound that I was able to compose but rather, a sound that I wanted to listen, to discover, to be surprised by.</p> <p> A slight twist in the usual way of composing but a major shift actually. It was also a good way to change my analyse about how we are listening to electronic music</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Axlotls2-1479809795" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/370908/axlotls2-1479809795.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Electronic music ≠ Dance Music</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> For many people, Electro is to be listen at night while dancing, in a club, from 15 years old until 30 years old.</p> <p> Well I am not trying to do anything against that, I think it is great but what I try to do with my music, is to involve the listener as a more active part of th whole exeprience, a bit like the classical music in a way:</p> <p> A nice track is not enough, it has to be meaningful, it needs to have a message in it, be it a question or a story or whatever, it has to tell something. And it doesn't mean you need a special education to achieve that, believe me, after all the films you've seen, all the music you listened to, you already understand music, even if you don't realise it!</p> <p> Just give it a try, listen to what the music tries to explain.</p> <p> That is the reason why I call the music I'm composing <strong>Narrative Electronica</strong>, it has some story to tell.</p> <p> It is not even new, it is just a reminder.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Pavero?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> This is the name of the EP as well as of one of the tracks.</p> <p> It is a fusion of the names Pavane and Bolero, a double reference to french composers <strong>Gabriel Fauré</strong> and <strong>Maurice Ravel</strong>, a huge and obvious influence in my work since ages.</p> <p> But they are not the only one of course, in this EP, you will meet a bit of Mars Volta, Sirusmo, Dajngo Reinhardt, James Holden, Modeselektor and many more that I uncousciously incorporated.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>

Allocation of funds

<p>  </p> <p> With the <strong>1st plateau</strong> of <strong>2000€,</strong> the project is well on track: I will be able to produce, print and provide promotional material, to spread the music:</p> <p> <strong>Cover</strong> design: <strong>400€</strong> (by <strong>Kippbild</strong>, an amazing painter)</p> <p> <strong>CD</strong> print: <strong>600€</strong></p> <p> <strong>T-shirts</strong>: <strong>400€</strong></p> <p> Kisskissbankbank <strong>commission</strong>: <strong>160€</strong></p> <p> <strong>shipping</strong> expenses: <strong>100€</strong></p> <p> <strong>Public Relation</strong>: <strong>340€</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> If we reach the <strong>2nd plateau</strong> of <strong>2600€</strong>, the mesmerizing japanese female dancer <strong>Ichi Go</strong> will join the project, for a fantastic video clip.</p> <p>  </p> <p> And finally, if we reach the <strong>3rd plateau</strong> of 4000€, I will be able to press collector vinyls, and that would be amazing because the painted looks promising (and incidentally, the sound as well)</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
