Emilie Zoe & Christian Garcia-Gaucher inspire with their new single "The Painter"

EMILIE ZOÉ & CHRISTIAN G.GAUCHER’s COLLABORATIVE ALBUM ‘Pigeons - Soundtrack for the Birds on the Treetops Watching the Movie of our Lives ‘ OUT ON APRIL 3rd 2020 ON HUMMUS RECORDS. It is an alternative soundtrack for Roy Andersson’s movie "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence"

Emilie Zoé was invited in 2018 by the alternative film festival « 2300 plan 9 à Les Étranges Nuits du Cinéma » in La Chaux-de- Fonds, CH to create a live soundtrack for a movie of her choice. She asked Christian Garcia-Gaucher, who had recently produced her second album The Very Start, to join the project. They chose together Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence for its hypnotic rhythm and its overall contemplative atmosphere and worn out colors. Within a few days, they wrote a collection of delicate themes and slightly melancholic interludes that they could play along the original feature. The show sold out and it felt crucial to everyone that such an exciting project would not end there. They gathered few months later in Swiss producer Louis Jucker’s tiny attic studio to lay these sounds on rusty second hand tapes. These 11 demo tapes merged spontaneously into a rich collaborative album, that assembles lo-fi pop hits and intriguing field recordings into a surprisingly coherent whole. 

Due to spring 2020 on Hummus Records, this limited record will be presented on selected live shows, in its original form, synced to the projection of the entire movie and with the addition of Nicolas Pittet on drums. 

Now "The Painter" is the first single from the album is coming out. Emilie about the song:

"A painter chooses what he puts in his drawings, a filmmaker chooses what he puts in his movies, and I like to think likewise we can choose what colors we want to put in our lives. Making a song is quite similar: to the green of the guitar notes and to the blue of the words, we added the orange of the automatic chords of the Bontempi that Christian played, and then everything turns yellow in the choruses as we sing together. Is this all in our heads or can we create reality?"
