Christian Piednoir has always pursued a dual artistic activity. A professional photographer and a passion for electronic music led him to approach Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre, Bernd Kistenmacher, Tim Blake and others, at concerts, or in private situations. These meetings, and listening to this style of music for so many years, made a personal musical project was born. Alpha Lyra was born in 2005. With his passion for astronomy, Christian chose this name, because the star Alpha Lyra (also called "Vega") is the brightest of the only constellation representing a musical instrument.
The musical univers developed by Christian is very deep and sensitive. Despite the influence of his masters, he takes the listener through a very personal space travel.
Christian is now considered of the most "cosmic" French electronic musicians.
"From Berlin to Paris is... a dreamlike journey through Electronic Music meanders. A tribute to Berlin, Capital of the musical culture during the 70', then a comeback to Paris, Capital of Arts and Kosmische Musik zealot. A romantic odyssey, starting with the very first Moog rustlings, then flying by synthetic ambiences of today.
Klaus, Manuel and Edgar musics still continue, today, to make me dream and, in the quietness of my musical den, I remember all those meetings we had, sharing some drink around a table or in the intimacy of a studio, friends and masters. Together.
From Berlin to Paris is dedicated to all of you who share the same love for that music that came to us, someday, from another world..." WebSite | Review TRACKLIST:
