A classically trained pianist, Laurent Girard went electronic years ago when he made the acquisition of a synthesizer. With it he began creating his own blend of textural instrumentals and swirling soundtracks. Almost a hermit in his hometown of Nantes, France, his musical focus remains on the melodies, with eddies of sound and beats melding together for a sound that is recognizably his own.
