Info for Novö Piano Live
This live mini-album completes the Novö Piano project and the work of Maxence Cyrin for a dozen years on the piano : Modern Rapsodies-2006, Novö Piano I-2010, Nocturnes 2015, Novö Piano II- 2015, "The Fantasist ", " Nocturnes "
This album is also a transition and a summary of his concerts, between his own compositions (solo album announced in the autumn of 2018) and his taste for covers and arrangements of new-wave or rock tracks. The peak of the project was a 3 week tour through the United States in June 2016.
As a romantic reader, Maxence has now forged a strong place between concert halls, festivals (jazz, classical, rock, electro), and fashion shows for Chanel or Hermès. Some of his covers have become TV hits (Mr Robot, The Leftovers, etc.) but are also played by thousands of amateur pianists.
Maxence Cyrin, piano
is a french pianist and composer. After training at the conservatory, he moved on to electronic music and new-wave and made several records during the 90s.
In 2005, he released “Modern Rhapsodies” on FCom, the label founded by DJ Laurent Garnier, where he reinterprets the iconic themes of electronic music from artistes like Massive Attack, Depeche Mode and Aphex Twin as a solo pianist.
In 2010, Maxence made a second album in a similar vein, entitled Novö Piano, in wich he adapted pop, rock and electro tracks from artists as The Pixies, Daft Punk and Arcade Fire.
He also works regularly for the fashion industry for brands like Lanvin, Chanel or Margiela, and has participated in projects in the contemporary art world.
Maxence released and album of original material, “The Fantasist”, in 2012, wich is described as a “fantasized self-portrait”, an imaginary soundtrack combining a strings, piano and vintage synthesizers.
He works actually on a new piano solo album with his own compositions and collaborates with other artists such Miss Kittin and Jay-Jay Johanson.
This album contains no booklet.
