about

Music doesn’t need explanation. But this specific set of pieces is a key to a door that has been shut tight for several years, right in front of my face. Several things had to fall into place for this to happen and they did by what seem like a string of chance events over the last few years. I can’t say that I know exactly how all of this happened but there are a few very important facts that I am willing to detail which I know directly influenced the music and its existence in this world...

The beginning of a new way of writing and composing. Free flow, stream of consciousness... spontaneous compositions.

These soundscapes are not new. Many have gone down that path using reel to reel tape machines, loopers, delays, computers. But for Cédric it has been an opening to a world long closed up. These are the first ones coming out after a couple of years of experimenting with the U8 touch guitar, an 8 string guitar going from a low Bb to a high D, tuned in 5th and played by taping the notes, plugged into a laptop. Everything is always recorded, for better of for worse.

This album comes in a beautiful deluxe package with a 12 pages booklet and a 38 minutes uninterrupted track recorded live.

Eternity's Antechamber is the introduction, the first step to opening the door wide open to eternity and what comes from it. The music flows, for ever.
