« Through a complex soundscape, this self-produced and self-recorded first album highlights a wide spectrum of sounds in a non-conventional, yet adequately controlled, framework, resulting in an unusual experience and a dreamlike atmosphere. Original sound effects combined with raw, highly skilled as well, musical approach and rhythmic proficiency create an eclectic and puzzling outcome that catches our ears, offering us a delicate and generous moment we wish to embrace. Valentin Becmann compels us to step into his universe where one can find many references in which he draws his inspiration and expertise. An effective and melodic journey that drifts us into a genuine Space Opera where the different styles virtually urge us to travel away with him. »
All compositions, music and words by Valentin Becmann. Music composed, played, recorded and engineered in Montréal λ (Canada), Havré Ω (Belgium) and Saint-Mesmin Φ (France). * Recorded live.
