Antoine Berjeaut – Wasteland


Adventurous electronic jazz.

Coming from the CNSM jazz, Antoine Berjeaut navigates between jazz, world music and new electronic sound territories. In 2014, he presents “WasteLand” and blurs the lines between contemporary jazz, beat music and electro… On the wire, the subtle music unfolds freely, on the borders of writing and collective improvisation, around texts inspired by Mike Ladd. A game of nuances, timbres, complex and original rhythms, cinematic atmospheres where vintage sounds, luminous melodies and poetry are mixed, influenced as much by Paul Motian’s minimal jazz as by the collages of Madlib, Flying Lotus or Burial… In a post-apocalyptic universe à la T.S. Eliott, WasteLand (literally the “Wasteland”) evokes an imaginary misty journey, somewhere in the great deserted East, where we still come across a few lost adventurers yet filled with humanity.

“Antoine Berjeaut has produced a hybrid work at the crossroads of dream and nightmare. Carried by the spoken word of American Mike Ladd, WasteLand is as much jazz and drum’n’bass as hip-hop and ambient. »
