New Acts: Pavane

Last week I looked at some of the acts playing the MaMA event in Paris, and said I would look in more detail at some of the interesting acts on the bill.

Pavane are one such act,  taking classical French music from the early 20th century and gives it a 21st century update.

 The band consists of keyboard player Damien Tronchot with his brother guitarist Ronan Troncot, from Rennes, and they describe influences as Board Of Canada, Jeff Mills, Rone, Joakim as well as Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, and Gabriel Fauré.

Pavane released an EP L'échappée two years ago, and it shows that the world of classical and 21st century electronics need not be so far apart after all.
