|Description :||Piano always had a central role in my discography and this
selection of short pieces showcases what might be my musical signature: quietness, slow pace, long resonances, a close
as possible to silence.
Music to be played at night.
Pianisme is a collection of unreleased and out-of-print piano
works composed and recorded since 2004. Most of them are
part of soundtracks for feature films by french director Sébastien Betbeder (from 2007's Nuage and the very rare short film
Nu devant un fantôme - whose music was completely
unpublished until now). Also released for the first time:
In the twilight of Paris (written the day after Luc Ferrari's
death, as a quiet homage to a composer whose works have
often been part of the Sub Rosa catalogue) and Soñando,
straight repetition and variations on a minimal pattern,
created for choreographer Christian Rizzo's 2010 show
L'Oubli, toucher du bois.
Sylvain Chauveau has made solo records on labels such as
FatCat, Type, Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier, and Brocoli: very
minimal compositions for acoustic instruments, electronics and vocals.
His music has been played in John Peel's show on the BBC and reviewed
in The Wire, Pitchfork, Mojo, Les Inrockuptibles, Libération, The
Washington Post and many others.
He has played live around the world (Europe, America, Asia),
performed in museums and art galleries, and was artist in residence
at the Villa Kujoyama (Kyoto 2011), Fundacao Serralves (Porto 2011),
and Lieu Unique (Nantes 2004 and 2014).
He runs the labels Onement, whose aim is to release one-copy vinyl
records and I Will Play This Song Once Again Records where musicians
have to re-record their songs for each buyer.
He has composed a piece titlted You Will Leave No Mark on the Winter
Snow whose duration is seven years, with extremely long silences
inside. One can listen to the streaming of the piece here: www.7yearsofsilence.com
He has made soundtracks for long feature films and dance shows.
Sylvain Chauveau also plays with ensemble 0 (with Stéphane Garin,
Joël Merah and more), Arca (with Joan Cambon).
He was born in 1971 in Bayonne (France) and lives in Brussels, Belgium.
