CLEMENT LANDAIS / Inland (feat. Frédéric Borey, Pierre Perchaud & Julien Jolly) / N° cat. HR011 - UPC 5057917862455
For his first album as a leader, double bassist Clément Landais invites us on a journey to elsewhere. Like an explorer of the imaginary, he leads us into a poetic, dreamlike world, in search of a coherent universe where beauty is palpable.
Atmospheric, moving music that projects fairy-tale chiaroscuro images, where the sky merges with the land and the sea, and where each track propagates waves carried by different ricochets.
A musical force conveyed by powerful melodies that carry us away to unknown and unexplored landscapes, full of dreams and mysteries.
A musical unfolding of total freedom, with no partitioning nor formatting, constantly changing like the sea weather, calm or agitated. A narrative music that goes through both cerulean skies and thick fog, always carried by a powerful melodic wind.
To breathe life into such organic music, carried by a poetic discourse as coherent as it is sincere, you need to surround yourself with precious friends who share with you a taste for dreamlike musical adventure and a collective work ethic.
