It is through his minimalist compositions that Alain Weber leads us into his new project entitled ‘Le Grand Tour’. This collection of electronic music is a collection of melodies which immerses us into a world of film. ‘Le Grand Tour’ makes reference to late 18th century Switzerland. Helvetia was an unmissable destination for the romantic British artists who came to admire the imposing poetic landscapes before them.
Coming first from the rock scene (1988-1990, Dorian Gray / Rosa Rot) then electronic (1991-1994, Safe Deposit / Globulo) and later producing compilations (2001-2003, abstract vol. I, II, III), Alain Weber made a u-turn in his musical career. His artistic approach is in keeping with the minimalist style of Michael Nyman or even Philip Glass. Considering himself a retro futurist, he presents meticulous compositions combining classical sounds with a resolutely contemporary approach.
