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.


released March 11, 2013

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Sébastien Betbeder (from 2007's Nuage and the very rare short film Nu devant un fantôme - whose music was completely unpublished until now).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.
