Translation of the French BIOGRAPHY
It is during the eighties that Etienne B. began the music and in search of an identity suitable for him, through the Punk movement, it will undergo a true metamorphosis.
It plays the guitar bass, which it hammers with the manner of Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order) within obscure groups such as The Funerals, Neo-Cortex or Antecedants, under influences Joy Division and The Residents. He is also fan of Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Stranglers, Bauhaus, Iggy Pop and Public Image Limited. “A Clockwork Orange” and “Blade Runner” are its films cult.
In search of new sonorities, it forsakes its “Fender Mustang”, to play with the analogical synthetizers (Emulator, Vocoder, Drum Machin)
Being rebel with respect to any ideology, and also for the Punk attitude that it asserts, the vision, in the concerts of artists like Alan Vega, The Residents or Kas Product in France will act as revelation.
Hardened by a solid musical experiment and a cultur pre-Cyberpunk, it with also a solid experiment in data processing, and computer graphics (of Andy Warhol to Photoshop…)
He is also a cameraman and an experienced creator of images. The Nineties go then, to open with him like a sound and visual vortex.
In 1993 with the explosion of House Music and the alternative musics which will follow, Acid, Trance, Hardcore, Goa, Techno, Etienne finds finally his references and an identity well to him! A little, much, precursor and visionary nevertheless!! Kraftwerk and Suicide made this music, 20 years earlier!!
It is the time when Analog-Digital-Noise starts- While being identified in Techno, Etienne works the music, day and night. It plays in Rave Partys, to make dance the ravers on its productions.
It also plays in FreePartys, and some clubs of the Franco-German border and in Switzerland.
A core of fans and Djs, even also some musicians, will follow it. Already its magnetism charms and gains the enthusiasm of the dance floors.
It attentively listens to the music of the djs and the best producers of electronic music of the world, Sven Vath, Jeff Mills, Plastikman, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers…the list is too long to put it here, while throwing an eye on “Underworld”, its last film fetish.
Its sets/live are powerful. Analog-Digital-Noise explore all the styles of music.
It occurred in festivals at the sides of groups like Front 242 in Goliath-Evolution and Djs; Darren Price, Colin Dale, Rolando…
After the engraving of kilometers (Miles) of Digital Audio Tapes, at the beginning of 2005, its 1st vinyl left on the label “Electropop Records” . The name is Pop Music, and it has 3 titles: Pop Music Complex, Pop Music Basic and Dark Angel.
