about

This archive is a reissue of 3 albums previously released on the Jamendo website in 2007 - I had to remove them of the site because they did not fulfill the conditions of the CC licenses.

The archive contains 36 songs composed between 2000 and 2007.

Shortly before 2000 I discovered virtual sequencers. I was very excited by the opportunity to be able to compose my own songs using full of virtual instruments and to test many experiments. I considered the tool as a nice way to have a band available to play the songs. Quickly I was addicted to composition. When I had free time, I was building a loop and play it in repeat mode while adding sounds, adjusting knobs, add variations, till build a song. It was really like a video game for me, I had a playful and spontaneous approach to the tool.

As a result I had plenty of playful, melancholy, dark and weird songs that I started to share with buddies. Then I decided to upload them on the web and had great feedback from the listeners even if the songs were full of imperfections.
Recently I re-listened to these old songs, it was very fun to hear that. It was not that bad, and i fell it was like a kind of genesis of what I do now.
I thought you might like it :)

The complete archive and each song are available in pay what you like mode. I add the 3 album covers plus the historical CIRC logo in the archive download. The artwork really matched the sound though.

If you want to use one of these songs for a video project or something else, send me a message : circ.music@gmail.com
