about

"Two keywords could define ‘A Tiny Kick in the Brain’, optimism and simplicity. I'm realizing day after day the importance of these words in our current life.
Simplicity is about making life easier as optimism drives it - and sometimes we need a tiny kick in the brain to stimulate action.
I have tried to create some fresh sounds to act as a stimulus. The beats and grooves offer optimism while chords and melodies portray simplicity.
My inspiration was fueled by my visit to San Francisco and my last experiences of performing in California, South Korea and Switzerland.The new score I composed for G. Mélies Impossible Voyage was also an inspiring step.
All these experiences gave me a different approach and new directions in fusing musical genres.
Reminiscent ethnic sounds shade the soundscapes as well as guitars and bass parts I played.
Many great artists contributed to this project such as the American pedal steel guitar legend, Bobby Black, and the great pop singer, Kally aka Hyung Yoon Jang, from South Korea.
A unique diversion for me was singing vocals on "Les Souvenirs", which brings the album a bit more versatility.

‘A Tiny Kick in the Brain’ is a new milestone in my musical career following the tiny kick I have in my brain."

Track Name: Valse du Diable
"La valse du diable
Au rythme du vent
Au rythme des vagues
La valse du diable"

(Dance with the sand

The devil's waltz

On the beat of the wind

On the beat of the waves)
Track Name: Something that's Inside
Everyday I miss my soul
Everyday I search the vibe
Everyday I look aside
For something that's inside
Track Name: Les Souvenirs
Defilent les images
Comme les éclairs d'un orage

J'éteind la lumiére
Je plonge dans la riviére

Les souvenirs vont revenir
Le temps passé va me manger


The images are running
Like the lightning of a thunderstorm

I switch off the light
I dive into the river

Memories come back
The past will devour me
Track Name: Life's Race
Life is what you believe
Look forward move ahead
