Is it the tickling of the cerebral cortex or the sound of the wind in the treetops? Is it the Earwig in the ear or the ear put on the Earwig kingdom? Acoustic ecology or acoustic imagination inventing new worlds? Underwater communities poured into the left ear. Gigantic anthills poured into the right ear. What a wonderful world that will soon be completely silent.

Hi, I’m Grégoire from Musique Muscle.

Happy disco for sensitive people.

Clara Le Meur - hier à la plage (Le Syndicat des scorpions)

It’s not release yet but soon.

The first solo album of Clara from the band Campagne.

It sounds sweet and melancholic.

Losange - Temple

A new track of Losange.

A kind of video game track to rescue princesses.

Saint-Gilles Reggae Club (Radio Béguin)

To finish this is a selection of mixtapes I made for the webradio Radio Béguin to promote my love for

Reggae music and its derivatives.

“The TV show Frenzy aired on Fox from 2006-2010. In the Season 4 finale, a cataclysmic event occurred that destroyed not only the fictional world of the show, but also any memory or record of the show from our reality. After this event, fragments of Frenzy can only be scavenged from dreams.”
