BON VOYAGE

BON VOYAGE, the best kept French instrumental project is now available for live shows

BON VOYAGE live at Patinoire Pailleron, Paris (Records Makers on Ice, 2010) :

Certaines mélodies racontent une histoire, voici celles de Bon Voyage. Le collectif parisien, renaissant des cendres de feu “Les Aéroplanes”, dont le disque, “impersonnel Naviguant”, sorti sur Mathematics, avait a l’époque fait une entrée remarquée dans le monde de la musique, a su développer une esthétique sonore différente, loin des standards actuels. Oscillateurs japonais, filtres américains, générateurs de cordes italiennes comme autant de moteurs pour un trajet mélodique a destination secrète.

Lovers of Tussle, François de Roubaix and mutant disco, beware : as music lovers we draw the greatest inspiration and pleasure when hearing compositions that tell a good story, and Bon Voyage is one such example. Rising from the ashes of the highly sought after Les Aeroplanes whose “ Impersonal Naviguant EP” for Mathematics was a sure fire hit.

This vibrant Parisian outfit has delved deep into a rich sonic landscape and evolved a musical score which is incomparable to most of today’s computer generated music. Bon Voyage cross genres as musicians, they carve out the sweetest melodies and allow the nectar to flow with an assortment of Italian Strings, American filters and Japanese Oscillators.

EP “Sorcier des aéroports”, release 03.10.2011 on Stendec records. French distribution by La Baleine

Full album to be released January-February 2012 on Stendec
