Adventure - Sophie Binet-Budelot (Tenor Horn), 2015

Sophie is probably one of the finest players on her uncommon instrument: the tenor horn. Since I met Sophie in the Burgundy Brass Band we talked a few times about a new work. She decides to commission a new concerto for her debut album! 

You can listen to her incredible playing with the fantastic support of the Brass Band Nord-Pas-de-Calais (former Hauts-de-France Brass Band), conducted by Luc Vertommen. There are also works by Peter Graham, John Golland's Sonata (with Junko Fukuda on piano), and a creation by Jérémy Chmielarz with Sophie Thévenard on Vibraphone.

East Road - Aksak Fanfar, 2016

For five years, before moving I played with the Balkan-Oriental group Aksak Fanfar. We played all around Europe including an amazing tour in Macedonia in 2014. 

The band doesn't exist anymore but I have some unforgettable memories!

You can listen on this CD, 16 songs and dances, from Balkan region, passing by Armenia to Maghreb.

Laurent Fléchier (clarinets, percussions), Paule Bonnet-Dumont, Hugo Mondière (clarinets),

Romaric Blanc (saxophone, flute, percussions), Pierre-Antoine Savoyat (flugelhorn, tenor horn),

Agnès Moyencourt (recorder, percussions), Jean-Christophe Kibler (accordion),

Pour Tout Bagages on a Vingt ans - La Sido, 2018

Label : La Roue Voilée

La Sido's debut album, a tribute album to Léo Férré and Boris Vian, led by Sidonie Dubosc with a jazz sextet. A refreshing vision of two masters of the French song, with the energy of young lions.

Alive - Sophie Binet Budelot, 2019

Second Sophie's album has more focus on small ensembles and chamber music. You can listen two pieces of mine: Mandala for Solo Tenor Horn, 3 female voices, cello, and bongos, and For the Future... for brass trio, with Sophie on Tenor Horn, David Maillot on Bass-Saxhorn...

and I play the Flugelhorn!

Also creations by Thibaut Bruniaux, Jérémy Chmielarz, Thierry Thibault,
...and Sophie herself!

"There is something deliciously off-kilter, other-worldly about the music - a bit like hearing the pop star Björk taking a fancy for writing for the tenor horn; her musical thought processes acting like individualistic tributaries that eventually mingle into a delta of comprehensive understanding. "

Iwan Fox, 4barsrest

Counsolin' - Q-Some Big Band, 2023

The music has been written by the Q-Some Composer Hub, a team of four musical pen pals who seek and isolate, listen and write, judge and inspire, delete and eliminate, sweat and relax, balance and ponder…

Consoulin’ means fraternization, the act of putting together of the soul, and the soul’s thoughts, not only between composers, but with the whole band. Hence 9 pieces by 4 composers, each telling their own story, played by 18 passionate musicians.

Ed Partyka, the always kind, but equally strict master of his craft, read along thoroughly, assisted us beyond the call of duty and saw that it was good. It is no coincidence that the piece ‘Berlin’ won a prize at the Helsinki International Big Band Composing Contest.

Consoulin’ is the mature fruit of a band that has grown artistically in times of crisis and has become even closer, more intense and better.

Quality of Joy - Aka Moon, 2023

Label : Out Here Music

"The question of the quality of joy seems to me today to be increasingly vital — it is intrinsically linked to the way in which humour can find its full expression in a world that constantly limits access to lighter moods." Fabrizio Cassol

The secret of Aka Moon's longevity lies in their unceasing explorations of both melody and rhythm, and in the expansion of their knowledge and horizons through their encounters with musical cultures from all over the world.

The instrumental line-up includes a permanent base of harmonic instruments in addition to the trio of accordion, guitars, cello) as well as guests (trumpet, voice, brass ensemble) on some tracks.

Memories from a Winter Journey - Le Monde Merveilleux de Pépito, 2023

Debut's album of the quartet, debut's album as a leader for Pierre-Antoine Savoyat. An intimist album that brings you to one hour of unique singular musical journey. The quartet is augmented by an alto sax and a string quartet, which gives a sensitive result, and shows Pierre-Antoine's strong habilities of arranging. You can hear some influences from Ambrose Akinmusire, or Wayne Shorter...

Imprints - Elsiris, 2023

Label : SONNA Records

With each song on the album, Elsiris leaves an imprint on its listener. Some compositions carry the name of a fictional character, who have their own layered personality that continues to evolve just like a human of flesh and blood. Do they remain a mystery or can they be fathomed over time? Other compositions embody a deep connection with nature, the feeling of being a part of something bigger, as well as a connection between people.

We had the privilege to have Diederik Wissels and Tsai-Wen Hui join us as guest musicians. Diederik Wissels’ electronic soundscapes adds an extra layer of depth to Helena II while vocalist Tsai-Wen Hui transforms Mathilde and lures you in the story with her voice.

Stéphane Galland & The Rhythm Hunters (2024)

Label : Challenge Records

Hunting for rhythm, as if our lives depended on it, as if, without rhythm, we’d starve to death. Can body and soul live without rhythm? Seizing its different forms, dissecting it, ingesting it, digesting it, could very well be akin to the Rhythm Hunters’ creative process. What are the rhythmic principles that lead us to develop its polyphonic, groovy and trance-like aspects (Africa), or mathematically complex ones (India), or irregular pulsations that transcend asperities (Balkans), among others? To go on a rhythm hunt, why not explore all these places, appreciate the infinite diversity of rhythms and, back home, try to understand and experiment with enriching your own rhythmic vocabulary with the basic principles underlying each musical tradition. What can these principles contribute if you transcend borders and begin to adapt your musical knowledge and experience to the new ramifications of the rhythm you’ve just discovered? The music of The Rhythm Hunters is one of the answers.
