Man :
François Rasim Biyikli
Charles-Eric Charrier

"It's all a question of breaths, appearances and disappearances... of intimacy within a trio, of shadows drinking light..." MAN


released January 4, 2016

MAN is a free two-headed man, each head listening to the other, working as one with the music. A duo consisting of multi-instrumentalists François Rasim Biyikli (piano, Rhodes, melodica, guitars, noises) and Charles-Eric Charrier (acoustic bass, guitar, toys), MAN produces a rare and elegant form of electroacoustic music that touches bases with unchartered territories where anything is possible.

Strange yet simple. Often intimate, like a silent witness who would play around with your things when you are not home. MAN gives new life to your records and makes the drum in your washing machine spin on its own.

Disquieting and friendly, absent yet abominably present, the duo achieves an even more liberated form of music on this third opus. After two instrumental albums for Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier ('Man' and 'Main Gauche'), three years spent playing concerts throughout Europe and multiple collaborations in film (about a dozen original soundtracks), fashion (Cartier), television (Arte), theatre, dance and visual arts (Pierrick Sorin), MAN comes out of a 12-month creative period and is finally back.
