Galactic Travels™: The Special Focus for August, 2020.

Jul 31, 2020

Professor Bertrand Loreau teaches electronics by day. His interest in electronics along with the discovery of synthesizers and electronic music in the '60s and '70s may explain his interest in EM. From 1960s TV ads and the use of synthesizers in Pop and Rock ignited his passion for EM. But it was seeing Klaus Schulze on May 3, 1977, that convinced him that the synthesizer would have a big role in his life.

In 1981, Bertrand formed a group that improvised music inspired by Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. By 1982, Bertrand began to record cassettes and developed his personal style. In 1993, he released his first album, "Prière" on MUSEA Records. Since then, Bertrand Loreau has released six more albums on MUSEA, five with Spheric Music, and self-produced a number of other works.

Bertrand Loreau's music continues to favor melody, but it can also venture into electroacoustic music and Berlin School, which made him want to play synthesizer in the first place.
