New collaboration with juice!

Hello there,

Once again I'm using this blog to communicate info that doesn't fit into a tweet or a Facebook update!

 This time I wanted to let you know about a very exciting new collaboration that's in the works.

I'm aiming to develop my work with juice vocal ensemble, the utterly brilliant contemporary classical three-piece for whom I've already whipped up a remix, and a few other soon-to-be-released pieces.

To make this collaboration possible, we're raising funds via this WeFund site. 


Have a look, watch the video (below) and please consider contributing if you'd like to be a part of the project's success, and you'll receive all kinds of musical treats in return.

Many thanks, and hope to see you on stage soon!

Blog is back... with some big news!

Welcome to a new look blog page!

Why have I decided to bring this old blog back to life? Well, I have loads of news to share which could never fit in a Facebook post, let alone a Tweet...

My biggest news is that I have now completed my second album!

This new album is called:

"The House of Bones"

Details about the release are currently being confirmed, but expect more announcements soon.

If you'd like to discover the songs from this new record before it is unleashed later in the year, I will be performing them in my upcoming solo shows this spring... it will be a brand new stage concept for a brand new album. All kinds of music rehearsal, visual creations, costume & set designs are underway. Can't wait to perform it!

Here are the French dates:

2nd April 2011 at Point Ephémère, Paris, as part of Les Plans d'Avril arts festival.

15th April 2011 at Théâtre de La Licorne, Cannes.

16th April 2011, a special showcase at La Médiathèque de Mouans-Sartoux

I am also thrilled to announce that I have been offered the Carte Blanche at the brilliant festival Les Nuits Carrées which takes place on 1st & 2nd July 2011 in Antibes, France. This is a great honour, and I'll be sharing all the latest updates on this special event as it draws nearer, as well as the announcement of an exclusive Paris gig in June to preview this show.

If you're wondering why it's all happening in France, well... I am a Parisian after all.

But fear not, I am super excited to announce that I will playing at The Roundhouse in Camden on 20th May 2011! This is part of an excellent arts festival, and as well as my solo show there should be some collaboration with other performers on the night.

I'm also whipping up some shows in Italy and Sweden soon with two very different, but equally talented, female vocalists, both of them as a duo: une chanteuse + moi = much fun.

For all the latest news, please do come "Like" my artist page on Facebook.

Exciting Autumn!


All kinds of exciting things are coming up this autumn, especially in the UK. Let me give y'all a quick summary.

First some signposts:

* Do keep an eye on my Facebook artist page, even if you're not on Facebook you can still see all the latest news, photos and exclusive stuff. It's like a hub for news and goodies.

* If you're not already following me on Twitter, well now is the time to hear my Tweetage!

Now here is the latest news:

* I'm playing some shows in the UK this autumn. HOORAH! I can't wait.

The big one is at the ICA in London on November 9th, with a set from my label-mate Ebb. I've dreamed of playing this venue for a long time, so I'm really chuffed! Book up your tickets soon to avoid disappointment.

* Other gigs will include Birmingham (3rd Nov) and Brighton (6th Nov) so keep your eyes peeled for ticket info on those also.

* We have some exclusive new live performance 'happenings' captured on film coming up over the next few weeks. To whet your appetites for all things BPM and LIVE, why not check out this mini-documentary by Julien Gidoin from our gigs at Le Sentier Des Halles theatre here in Paris last year.

* I've been busy creating some remixes for other artists, with the same sonic concept as my album, so only the Body, the Piano and my little Machine. The first one to be released is 'Threads' by Temposhark. I'm really pleased with it! I think of these remixes like cousins to the BPM songs on the album.

* Finally, we have been working hard on compiling 6 exclusive new versions / remixes of Tongue, my next single release. These will be packaged into 2 digital EPs, with a release pencilled in for October. I can't wait for you all to hear these mixes, as they are just brilliant. Such a thrill for me... oh, and wait 'til you see the video. It is rather special...

Anything else exciting that crops up in the world of Body-Piano-Machine you will hear about on Twitter, Facebook or by carrier pigeon.

Bye for now!

Coming soon...

I have not blogged for an eternity... but I have been using the web-platform du jour: Twitter!

You can know keep an eye my artistic endeavours by following me on Twitter itself, or just keep an eye on the widget (to the right of this page) or indeed on my MySpace page.

So, it's all getting very exciting in the build-up to the release of my album 'Body-Piano-Machine', which comes out on 27th April on Gaymonkey Records. We have a single coming out on 13th April; the song 'Flesh & Bone' the video for which you can watch in a previous blog post. The digital bundle comes with an exclusive remix by French electro-guru Leapstick, and a live track recorded last year at Point Ephemere here in Paris.

We have a massive Paris gig at the ultra-chic Nouveau Casino on the 29th April (achetez vos billets tout de suite les franciliens!) which should be a great evening: we'll celebrate the album release by performing our stage show which is not like most pop gigs... come and discover our performance and you won't be disappointed!

I've been getting some really lovely blog coverage. A big London gig is coming up too - announcement coming soon.

Please do get in touch by leaving comments here, on MySpace or indeed LastFM where you can hear more tracks from my album.

Get Ready For The WOW

Check out the video for 'Money Note', Camille's new single which I produced with her:

Nice hula-hoop action! Mariah will be very jealous...

In other news, my on-stage participation in Camille's tour is nearly over. Just a handful of concerts left before I leave my role as pianist to concentrate fully on the overall musical arrangements for her show, and also to develop my other recording and live projects.

We are currently organising some gigs for Body-Piano-Machine for the autumn, and the album should be available around then also... so much more excitement to come before the year is over!

I'm Reborn in Flesh and Bone

Long time no blog.

I've been very hectic on tour with Camille. It's been going great - the audiences have been amazing and the show is equally electrifying for us performers. Special mention for those who came to our gigs in London and Germany. The reaction has been pheonomenal - thanks for the warm and energetic welcome! It's really energising and stimulating to experience such enthusiasm after travelling long and hard.

And also busy working on this visual treat; a video for the song "Flesh and Bone" from my forthcoming album "Body-Piano-Macine (BPM)". This song feature my on-stage collaborator Benedicte Le Lay.

It's directed by the very talented photographer and director Raphael Neal and I am thrilled with the results.

More exciting visual developments to come in preparation for the album release this coming autumn (2008).


Please feel free to send this video link around. It's there for your viewing pleasure!
