"Lelong heals with colours"

French synthesizer artist Florent Lelong is releasing his second album, Color Therapy, on May 10th. In this next musical chapter, he approaches music as if it was the art of painting, cinema or sculpture.

May 10th, Florent Lelong's new album Color Therapy is focused on sounds "with the same fun and extravagant approach" as on the previous album, Electro Libre (2008). On the new album, Lelong explores sounds and approach music like he would approach painting, cinema or sculpture, as he thinks sounds have colors, shapes, and intensity. An approach long preached by fellow countryman, Jean Michel Jarre. The concept album is also an attempt to go back to the very roots of electronic music and the genre's original instruments. The 13 tracks on the album have been concieved as being "somewhere between dance and escape", the press release says.

Lelong is also working on creating a multimedia performance to accompany the new album.

Florent Lelong's debut album Electro Libre, which was listened to online more than 40.000 times, showcased influences such as Air, Bob Sinclar, Brian Eno, Cerrone, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, David Guetta, Jean Michel Jarre, Moby, and Pierre Henry. The new album is also influenced by a diversity of artists and genres, such as jazz, pop, rock and ambient music. - Dag Blomberg

Bio

Florent Lelong is a 27 years old electronic music composer from the outskirts of Paris. Music comes during his childhood, listening a lot of Pink Floyd and Beatles father’s vinyls and following some courses on drums. Then he grabbed a keyboard and started to play classics in an autodidact way. All these experiences naturally led him to electronic music, finding here the opportunity to experiment with sounds.

A passion that turned into a first demo album composed in his student room, “Electro Libre”, shared online and was streamed across many countries. All the basics of Florent’s music are already there: conjugate pop music standards and electronica, break down borders between styles, no lyrics, just the melody.

On stage, Florent break the rules again. Somewhere between a DJ performance and a Rock show, he’s always surrounded by a drummer, a guitar player. From small Parisian pubs to larger stages and festivals, his concerts are always full of positive energy, acclaimed in France and other countries, like in Germany during the Electronic Circus 2013. The same year he’s nominated for the Schallwelle Awards in Best Album Category for Electro Libre. He collaborated also for some films and videogames music.

His new opus is coming for 2017…
