Paracoelops c’est un duo đàn bầu et guitare, électrique et hypnotisant, avec des chansons qu’on aime, de Monk à Björk…
Ambiance comme à la maison, on espère vous y voir !
So it looks like I haven’t been taking care of this place lately…
Since last time, I’d been composing for a movie in concert on a japanese 1926 avant-garde film : A Page Of Madness. I hope I get to play this further, and I’m finally able to make some moves in that direction…
I’m currently working on two band projects here in Paris : đàn bầu and guitar with Andrea Campagnolo, and a bigger experimental hip-hop quartet that should be running around end of this summer.
Meanwhile, I am organising team building workshops and you can check this brand new company of mine : Invente-moi une chanson !
Nice previews to come soon !
So I finally built a proper website. You can check it out at http://sylvainstreiff.com.
As you might have noticed, this blog moved to a new url too…
