How long did it take you between the day of your meeting and the release of the album ?
UCDidgs : 1st rehearsal and composition in March 2015, victory at Didg To Didg in May, The « Rêve de l’Aborigène » in July, recording of the album in January and release in May 2016. A good year therefore. We then worked on the scenic project and we recorded the new EP in 2019.
Does your album contain some sort of message ?
Adrien B : I will be curious to know if the listeners see a message and which one. Tell us in the comments ! For me, it is above all an atmosphere and a dynamic that stand out. There is also the desire to push the didgeridoo from a technical perspective while making it musically « accessible » to the uninitiated by integrating other colors with the harmonica and the harp. In concert, we seek a dance atmosphere, with an almost electro side, without forgetting winks to the other facets of the instrument. And then there is a performance approach on stage with GOTHAM, dancer from Krump, who accompanies us regularly. Visually and in interaction with spectators, it brings a lot.
Otherwise, more concretely, we also pass on the messages around the instrument during musical conferences that we organize in media libraries, etc. This format is well suited to discussions.
Julien H : I would add the invitation to travel, I like the idea of music that makes both the audience and the artists travel in the same energy. The goal for us is for people to have a good time having fun and forgetting everything else.
