Bio

?O?ne thousand paths After the success if his 2015 album "an enchanting garden", the remix by beatmaker james digger, the collaboration with American hip hop figure Masta Ace, South Park series featuring his song "Gortoz a ran" (30 million+ views on Youtube)... Introducing Denez' 9th album : 14 original compositions, a mix of acoustic instruments and electro sounds all intertwined in a powerful, universal fusion music Ancestral and contemporary sounds, from afar and tomorrow... Scottish bagpipes, Turkish qanun, symphonic violins woven into beats and samples Distorted bombard, scratch and open tuning guitar. Hip hop beats combined with andro, gwerz songs blowing across Bronx streets... "This is a blend of all the paths I've taken so far... and also a kind of completion" Prestigious collaborators found their way to this new album : Yann Tiersen, as inspired as ever, guitar player Jean-Charles Guichen and his brother Fred Guichen, as well as uillean pipe viruoso Ronan Le Bars The intense emotions, the ecstatic energy, the colours and rythms of these soundscapes and the power of the stories are at the heart of this new album, carried away by Denez' unique voice Denez' exceptional voice range (3.5 octaves) allows him to explore other vocal textures : softer, more private... unexpected even, when the piano lands quietly on his voice (my path), (naked path) ; grandiose and spectacular as the backwash of the sea joins the beautifully stirring lyrics of Marc'h Eon (a Horse of Sea Foam) ; whispered (My path) or pushed to a near-scream, ultimate limit in Nij an Erer (The Eagle's Flight) ; The sounds of nature are for the first time blended into Denez's universe : the croak of a crow, a fire crackling, a thundering storm, a whistling wind, crashing waves and tolling church bells... all come together to nurture the voice that comes in harmony with water, earth, air and fire. Denez plays around brilliantly with traditional forms : gwerz, march, kan ha diskan.... then takes them apart and puts them back together in unexpected ways : chanted or declaimed poetry, tale... Il reinvente dans une langue bretonne subtile une poesie seculaire. An age-old poetry gets reinvented in a subtle Breton language Powerful imagery, omens, signs and symbols drawn from celtic mythology run along this breathtaking, epic poetry. It immerses us in a fantasy universe, full of mysteries, where the Ankou (Death) is omnipresent, and its acceptance makes you love life all the more ; where talking animals and a link between reality and the unseen ; where Man lives is osmosis with the elements of Nature. Denez declaims timeless stories in an unwaveringly modern language : stories of unrequited or impossible love, of infanticide, disenchantment, but also life quests and happiness found anew. There is a strange delight in hearing those tragic, hair-raising events, as if they exorcised our deepest fears and tensions, made us find comfort in our own tears, as we are dragged into the imaginarium of our dreams. life q/ In this album, Denez addresses an issue that is dear to him : the preservation of nature. Ar Rodou Avel (the Windwheels) questions the implantation of the wind turbines ; Hent noazh (naked path) condemns deforestation. Those songs and tales bring a different prose, tone and breath. Welcome to Mil Hent - One Thousand Paths, a staggeringly beautiful album that transports us far into a constantly renewed emotion, deeply into Denez' sacred incantatory chant.
