Ici & Lui is a trendy music, a pop-electro-jazz show.
We are two brothers living in Paris, France. Our instruments : a guitar, a trumpet, a sampler, 2 synthetizers from vermona.com, a DIY sequenceur from midibox.org
Pop Electro Jazz, is the title of our first LP too. The instruments, the samples of Japanese voices, the taste of modern Jazz... So many fields that make the specificity of our music. Two feet on the ground with the head in the sky, machines are played as if they were genuine instruments.
Ici & Lui it is cartoons projections during the show as well ! The art of manga is leading our music. We associate some cartoons to our music from the draftsman Benjamin Reiss : tokyoland-bd.blogspot.com/.
Those cartoons are played in real time with a MIDI keyboard by Benjamin Cordova. So, these are not videos but images that give rythm to the music in real time.
