The story so far ...
Here it is ... back to 1999, Jean Jacques Lasserre, leader of a band named « Secret », dashes into an instrumental project, keeping his former sense of Electro-world colors, he likes so much.
With Boops, an ingenious and really experimented guitarist, he makes a first try. Soon, a guy named Franck Ecalard aka Glyphcult comes to join the former duo, his task : blowing didgeridoos!
Quickly they manage to perform on some electro-trance events near Paris with other new comers as Julian H (sound-engineer and sound-fx) and Mylène Coubronne, the flutist, Who brings the
indispensable melodic touch.
They manage, then, to record their first album, « 1999 », self-distributed via internet, with 4 titles pulled from their live-performance at the « Gaïa party » (near Paris - France). They are now becoming a part of the electro-underground parisian scene. In the year 2000, born the « collective spirit », their stage-performances offers then new surprises, they are bringin' in, dancers and performers as well as the following artistic guests : René Boelle (body-painting), Kama (fluoro-deco) and Virginie Sueres (Vj).
It's now 2001, time for the big Trance-festivals. One of their titles appears on a first Psytrance compilation called « Password is love », followed by a second track featured on the « Translocco
Express » an Ethno-Trance compilation. Soon they begin to be exported through France, in Switzerland and Morocco. To begin with the year 2003, they settle in the countryside, near a very old oak (800 years old), when they become soaked with nature and with its myths to compose and realize « Sylva » their second studio-album.
2004 knocks at the door, They are now dealing with Mozaïc Music, a national distribution/promotion. Music grows richer with three new permanent members: Adèle (didgeridoos, Jew's harp), Franck Kick Bong (drums & percs) and Cendre Osmosa (elfic/feminine Singing). They are playing in a more eclectic way and are performing various stages, where they are still receiving an unanimously warm reception (Live-recording video of the « Mondes solidaires » Festival).
Year 2007, is the one for the recording of a new album and yes, the story continues...
