Pierre Hermé x Nicolas Buffe:
I will start a new solo project entitled Behind the Shadow Drops.
The basis for the project came from myself wanting to create dark electronic music that would mercilessly echo to the world of darkness, hence I used "night" as a theme for all the songs.
I also wanted to create songs that the beautiful world gets interlaced with nights like magic; like stars and moon dancing together over silent night, sleepless night, beautiful night, night with uncertain future, night that drives you mad, night that makes you want to cry and scream, night that you want to share with someone, and night that you long for something.
During the album composition, I had the opportunity to participate in the wonderful collaborative project that French modern artist Nicolas Buffe was working on with French pâtisserie brand Pierre Hermé. Because of this, I can now present to you my new solo project a lot earlier than I expected.
I'm truly happy that there is now an opportunity for me to be able to share everything as a piece. The album is scheduled for Spring 2017 release, and it's currently under production. I hope Behind the Shadow Drops will speak to as many people's heart as possible in depth.
