“InBach” is the newalbum by French electronic music producer Arandel, out in January 2020.
This is the first volume of a collaboration between French label InFiné (Rone, Apparat, Murcof…) and the Musée de la musique de la Philharmonie de Paris who allowed the producer to record inside the museum on its precious instruments and mix them with his electronics.
This disc is a personal take on Johann-Sebastian Bach works, crossed by various influences, old and new sounds. This is the proposal that Arandel dared to make while working on the timeless and immense work of the great composer.
For this adventure, Arandel surrounded himself with talented guests from classical and contemporary music (Gaspar Claus, Petra Haden, Ben Shemie (Suuns), Sébastien Roué, Barbara Carlotti, Emmanuelle Parrenin, Vanessa Wagner, Wilhem Latchoumia, Areski, Thomas Bloch) , who have all played on the Museum rare instruments such as the expressive Müller organ, the Erard organized piano or the Zach cello…

And here is a video filmed during one of the band’s residency at Le Badaboum, Paris, featuring Barbara Carlotti and Ben Shemie (Suuns):
