Nicolas Bernier makes music to get close to. His first official CD is called Les arbres (“The Trees”) and it’s one of the most exquisitely composed pieces of electroacoustic music we’ve ever released. Bernier has a sound world of his own at his disposal (we’ve heard a glimpse of that with his delicious Ail et l’eau faille EP) & we feel more than lucky to be able to share it with you starting right now.
Sonic landscapes and slow textures meet with precise articulations, all this resting on a minimal orchestration made of guitars, brass instruments, vibes, accordions and strings. In short: a stimulating record, a remarkable attention to detail and excellent production quality, making for an unfailingly rewarding listening experience.
Les arbres is also a remarkable visual project. The CD comes packaged in a lovingly assembled sleeve containing six exclusive postcard-format illustrations by Urban9. Let’s put it another way, you don’t have any excuses not to get this disc.
