The composer and performer of modern classical piano music known as Damien Cesbron has released his latest official album, “3 Métamorphoses Pour Piano.” The album contains nine original Damien Cesbron tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Evocative, illustrative, and accessible to both longtime fans of classical and new listeners alike, “3 Métamorphoses Pour Piano” showcases Damien Cesbron as a rising piano virtuoso and vivifying composer of original pieces at the same time.
Damien Cesbron is a French artist teaching various music skills at Friborg Conservatory in Switzerland. In addition to piano, he is also proficient at synthesizers and double bass. He cites as main artistic influences Bach and Debussy in the classical category, Glass and Reich in the minimalist genre, and Kraftwerk and Boards of Canada from electronica music. Cesbron’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds a raw, intuitive playfulness which pervades not only his performance but also his songwriting, resulting in casual, yet refined works which will appeal to a broad range of music fans.
With an emphasis on texture, emotional draw and compositional minimalism, “3 Métamorphoses Pour Piano” by Damien Cesbron is deceptively deep, with treasures to find at every level for listeners looking to find profound, inner secrets, or just a little something special right beneath the surface.
Asked to describe the overall meaning of “3 Métamorphoses Pour Piano,” Damien Cesbron writes: “These recordings are intimately linked to Brittany (France). This is where I composed the majority of the pieces during several stays of retreat last fall-winter. The main tunes, the 3 Metamorphoses, bear the names of the winter storms that crossed Brittany during these periods. They seek to express the alliance of minimalist music with classical harmonic language. The theme of the metamorphosis evokes the inner journey when facing ourselves and discovering new territories.”
Damien Cesbron trained at Angers’s conservatory in France for 12 years in classical and jazz double bass, then graduated from the Boulogne-Billancourt’s conservatory (FR) and the Musikhochschule from Basel (Switzerland). His music has been described as a cross between jazz, improvisational and electronic music. Before the release of his first solo recordings, he collaborated on several classical and improvised music albums, as well as various productions of design and sound installation.
His current official bio proclaims, “Through his performances mixing composition and improvisation, Damien proposes an original electro-acoustic sound universe that questions the codes.”
