Killian Perret-Gentil playing on Focusyear Band 2023 Album - Until

The new Focusyear 2023 Band Album is out. It compiles few compositions of each one of the musicians of the 2023 Focusyear Band.

The album is available on all music platforms including Spotify.

Killian Perret-Gentil shares below the meaning behind his selected compositions:

ALBUM

Drill (by Killian): “This piece started as an exercise to copy the style of hip hop known as drill. What interested me was the idea of making music without any aspect of storytelling. The form is usually a four-bar loop that rappers constantly improvise on using the same rhythmic patterns. I tried to reproduce this effect using various compositional devices but allowed myself to depart from the tonal system and typical four-beat rhythmic cycle used in this style.”
Le règne de la quantité (by Killian): “In this piece, all the notes are written but nothing other than the pitches are specified. As jazz musicians we are very used to improvising melodies and chord progressions, so I wanted to explore what would happen if we could improvise on every parameter but the melody and chords. The material is derived from three series of three notes often creating very tense harmonies.”
