Like a prelude to creation, like an unfinished electro-symphony, like an anthem heard and remembered in dreams, Prequell is first and foremost a musician’s achievement. The genesis of this musical UFO - a harmonious compound of classically written music and mad electronics was the passion of Thomas Roussel, a very fascinating though secretive french man, talented and charming, who cannot be anything but appreciated by every music lover craving the thrill of strong, intimate sensations. After collaborating with prestigious musicians, Thomas Roussel has decided to don the suit of lights of Prequell as if re-writing an overture to his life as an artist.
Prequell weaves musical and cognitive dissonances into redeeming chaos. « Part V » (first piece of the EP) opens the dance and there, we’re obviously listening to a masterpiece. Downtempo beats, addictive ostinati, and hypnotic loops are all harmonic weapons setting the tone. The overture’s first six seconds are the organic matter that will grow and develop to the beat of a warrior’s heart. This very seductive title, already sounding like a prospective classic will soon be playing in people’s heads all around the world since it has been chosen to be the sound track of a worldwide advertising campaign by L’Oreal (starring Karlie Kloss and directed by Mathieu Cesar )
« Part IV » is a journey, both interior and musical. It belongs with the air and with the earth, as if beauty must need be born from a perfect balance between strength and gentleness, light and darkness. Prequell divulges his secret incentive : « I’m fascinated by space. When NASA released the frequencies of the planets, I found there an unending source of inspiration ! The only harmonious sound being that of Planet Earth, it became my inspiration, like some harmonic DNA.
