Qracks


w_MG_1328


Another old track I made in the 90's.
The stupid name comes from the fact that I wanted to play some guitar, but I could not go over cracks in the guitar sound…
No guitar in "Qracks" then ;-)

Le Talisman


wIMG_0490


"Le Talisman" was an old project I had in the 90's to compose tracks based on "The Talisman" book by Stephen King.
I made many tracks, some quite good ones, but I only found the 1st and 4th part :-(
Part 2 was one of my best works, but I got no traces of it :-(

Part 1



Part 4

In The City

Another song I made with my friend Emmanuel Auidebert, in 1989.
I wrote the lyrics and composed/played the music.
E. Audebert made the introduction and all the voices.
Recorded in one night on a Yamaha MT44D (analog 4 tracks recorder).

YR Production


Capture d’écran 2020-07-10 à 14.30.58


Designing an original work does not mean imposing personal choices or tastes on the end customer.
It is above all to listen to his expectations, and try to perceive what he imagines, to transcribe it as close as possible.

Here, the producer's request, for the sound illustration of its production credits, was that a particular sound had to follow the movements in space of the main light source.
Better with headphones…or in a movie theatre ;-)

Rain

wIMG_2817-(1)



From my 2005 "Des Envies de Fin du Monde" cycle, "Rain" was made a rainy day ;-)
Just for the story, the flutes samples I used were from my "Merlin" flute I had to buy when I was 10 for compulsory music classes at school: I sampled it with my DSS1.

Hong Kong on Fire


01


With a minimal set (cheap MIDI keyboard, cheap second hand Squier Strat guitar, cheap audio interface, LogicPro X, FinalCutPro X, my MacBook Pro laptop computer), I finally made what I had in mind.
Using live footages from Hong Kong MTR and protests, composing new music, putting them all together with the photos I made from last summer protests, here is "Hong Kong on Fire" (audio and video), first part of a new "Hong Kong Standing" project.
My tribute to this city I love, and to its brave people that always welcomed me gently.




Here's "Hong Kong on Fire" video:




And the audio track:

Living in a Dream

Only one foot on the ground, the other one in the sky…
Things I hope mostly come in my dreams only.

Ving et Un

C. was 21 since one month and ten days when he passed away.
I've always felt guilty because as the older one, I was convinced I should have been the first one to pass away…
True guitars and bass guitar, fat sound, disturbing harmonies are what the track is made of.

Here's 21:

Retour à l'Anormal Part 4

IMG_4788


I started the "Retour à l'Anormal" cycle just after I finished the "Paris" tracks, playing on words (retour à la normale - back to normal state / retour à l'anormal - back to the abnormal).

You can find Parts 1 & 2 following this link,
And you will find Parts 3 and 5 here.

Part 4 is special to me: when I composed it, it was times when my mood was always changing (I was a bit cyclothymic), and I was keeping the reasons why inside (mystic) ;-)
The progression of the track tries to reflect these perpetual changes.


Part 4: CyclothiMystik

One World

An old track I made after listening too much "Saga": I wanted to try to play something that would sound a bit like Saga songs, and the end is close to what I expected ;-)

Construction


IMG_4303


From my 2005 "Des Envies de Fin du Monde" cycle, "Construction" is a long track, made of atmospheres more than melodies on its long introduction.
I'm conscient it's not one of my "easy" compositions, and it might be hard to listen to, until it ends.

Le Diable Partout


PS7-03186



I was working on my "Heaven and Hell" cycle when I met Yvan.
Yvan was a singer looking for songwriters and musicians.
We met and started to work on some lyrics I had already written.
The first version is sung by Yvan.
Then we became friends.
Then we became more than friends.
Then we broke.
I added then the two last thirds of the lyrics, and I sang on the music I had also slightly changed.
This is the purpose of version 2 ;-)
Note that the female voice doubling my own one is…my own voice modified by a vocal effect plugin ;-)

Here's "Le Diable Partout", followed by the lyrics below:


Vocals: Yvan


Vocals: EGS



"Le Diable Partout" (lyrics, images and music ©EGS Music)

Tant de choses qui changent,
Tant de choses qui changent tout,
Moi je ne vois plus que des Anges
Là où je voyais le Diable partout.

Comme un oiseau
Dans sa cage
Je voyais tourner le monde
Tout autour de moi,
Je n'étais plus de moi que l'ombre,
Je ne comprenais plus rien à tout çà.

Tant de choses qui changent,
Tant de choses qui font de vous
Un homme qui parfois dérange
Ceux qui ne voient pas les hommes comme vous.
