nevenmusic - Je respire
DescriptionInfluenced by the likes of Björk, Coco Rosie or even Serge Gainsbourg, Bix Medard points
towards 'la nouvelle chanson française' in an electro-gothic, down-beat style.
Early 2008, Peter Clasen, leader of electronic band Neven and Bix, were asked to perform during a fashion show by Y-Dress. Soon they worked on more songs. Bix Medard was born.
The electronics and new-wave-influenced bassplaying by Peter Clasen are combined
with the sweet soft voice and organic flute playing of Bix.
Momentary based in Brussels, the very chaotic capital of Europe, Bix worked all over the place. Painting, performance art, writing poetry, Bix worked in Oslo, Kyoto and Paris, amongst others. Her lyrics reflect the contradictions and plurality of today’s society, a multicultural, contemporary and digital world.
To be filed under "pop", with extra tags such as psychedelic, minimal,
new-wave, gothic, post-punk, trip-hop, chanson and down-beat. Kitch but never ridiculous.
The overall sound is retro vintage. Psychedelic echos from the sixties,
monophonic synths from the seventies, typical drummachines and effects from the eighties.
And yet all elements, voice, flute, bass, and electronics remain organic.
