VILLEMIN grew up in an eclectic musical environment, between the rehearsals of his lyric soprano mother and the CDs bought by his older brothers. The family library contains music by Poulenc, Arvo Pärt, Ravel’s piano concertos and 90’s albums by Massive Attack and Björk. She is immediately taken by the hypnotic languor and rich orchestration of the latter. Although she was trained as a violinist at the conservatory (where she entered at the age of 7 before going on to study pedagogy, harmony and orchestration in Lyon and Paris), the piano and keyboards are still intimately present in her life. His great-grandmother gave his mother a small organ, telling her that it would bring comfort to her daily life. VILLEMIN spent most of his free time there, with his headphones on, from the age of four until his mother gave him a piano when she moved to a new home.
Later, VILLEMIN produced music for theatre, dance and advertising, developing an orchestral and vaporous style. After several years of collaborating with classical and contemporary ensembles as a violinist, but also with shoegaze bands for whom she made arrangements and a video clip, she developed her own language through a refined approach. Thus, she undertook the writing of her first EP on the piano, the instrument that allows her to render the entirety of her emotions.
“NUIT” was recorded and mixed by Alix EWALD at the Studio de l’Orchestre National d’île de France in stereo and Dolby Atmos under the Doorway Music label (Amsterdam), broadcast on FIP France Radio and Soho Radio in London.
