HOW WE TRIED A NEW COMBINATION OF NOTES TO SHOW THE INVISIBLE OR EVEN THE EMBRACE OF ETERNITY

The project is like its creator: surprising, challenging, fascinating. Since the early 90s, Olivier Mellanohas been multiplying musical adventures, favouring human and artistic encounters.

Composer, guitarist and above all a talented musical alchemist, he was instrumental in shaping thesound of Dominique A, Laetitia Shériff, and was invaluable to the much esteemed Bed. Hovering between hip-hop excursions (Psykick Lyrikah), solitary escapades (La Chair des Anges, and the recent MellaNoisEscape) and limitless acts (Mobiil) or his famous movie-concerts (Duel of Spielberg, The Dawn of Murnau...), Olivier Mellano is often spotted where least expected.

Now, he is back with How We Tried…, a creation out of blinkers, a trilogy mixing acoustic, electric and electro/hip-hop music, voices, sounds, digital creation and projected images.

Olivier Mellano presents this new work in three interpretations of the same musical theme, divided into four movements inviting us on a “metaphorical journey”, a one way ticket to discover the “act ofcreation”.

> Symphonic version : soprano singer Valérie Gabail and the Symphony Orchestra of Brittany,

conducted by Jean Michel Lavoie (Los Angeles Philharmonic, Paris Orchester…) ;
> Electric version : 12 guitar players from the Pink Iced Club band, Regis Boulard on drums andSimon Huw Jones, singer from the cult English rock band And also the trees.

> Electro/hip-hop version with rappers MC dälek/IconAclass (New York), Black Sifichi and Arm.
