ARANDEL / INBACH
ARANDEL’s new album is now out on InFiné Records.
‘InBach’ pays a poetic, infinitely respectful and innovative homage to Bach’s sacred workings. Born out of a proposal by the Musée de la Musique, Paris, the aim was to use the extraordinary but often hibernating instruments housed in the museum with vivid, contemporary music.
Not content wandering through an Ali Baba’s Cave of musical treasures, Arandel has invited artists from different universes and backgrounds to join him in his exploration. Guests who each bring their extreme musicality, sensibility/sensitivity, and faith in the project include classic pianist Vanessa Wagner, DJ and composer Flore, classical soloist Thomas Bloch, singer/songwriter Barbara Carlotti, cellist Gaspar Claus, guitarist Sébastien Martel, singer, comedian and composer Areski, pianist Wilhem Latchoumia, Ben Shemie – singer and guitarist of Montreal alt-rock unit Suuns, singer Petra Haden and folk singer and harpist Emmanuelle Parrenin.
French magazine TELERAMA gave the album the presitigous “4-keys” award.
