Sylvain Chauveau

Sylvain Chauveau was born in 1971 in Bayonne, France, and currently lives in Brussels, Belgium. After several years singing and playing guitar in rock bands, Chauveau decided, 1998, to dedicate his time to a solo project with three main ideas -  staying as close as possible to the abstract beauty of ‘silence’; making sure that each sound committed is absolutely necessary; and finding his own roots within his cultural and personal history.

The latter has lead him to the quest for a truly modern French music – a music whose trajectory stretches from early 20th century chamber music composers (Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie, Gabriel Fauré, etc.), through the discoveries of mid-century “musique concrète” and the electro-acoustic school (Pierre Henry, Luc Ferrari, Bernard Parmegiani, etc.), and emerging through post-punk philosophy and a pop culture embracing short, simple and melodic works.
