What is Humantronic ?
Just something simple that sounds like his music, and, needless to say, something that sounds just like him… Frédéric Alvernhe has made a career that is part and parcel of his personality. Today, this composer-producer-jock comes up with a very personal project, a moving to Berlin and a label (Neopren) set up with a few European friends. Their debut EP features James Taylor (Swayzak) and Cabanne. Some highly specialized material indeed, but miles away from a passing fad. Far ahead.
But what happened before ?
Before, it¹s a long story of rhythmics. Starting in high school where he played the rhythmic guitar in his first rock band until, awe-struck, he discovered rave parties in the green English countryside, Fred would not rest until he finally took the plunge, round about 1997, when he started playing under the hippy name he was known forŠ Yet, it would be wrong to reduce the character to a mere peaceful image, even though there are logical affinities with trance and psychedelic culture in general. He is, in fact, more than anything else, a true child of that 90s legacy : the musical crossover. If you want proof, take a look into his flight-case, or check out his open-minded techno : his route is that of a true musician. At the end of the century, this completely self-taught artist had several tasks in hand :
he accompanied on the bass guitar his DJ friend Steph d¹Elisium, composed and created music for plays (Au Pays des Hommes1, Théâtre Toursky) in which, for the first time, he carried out a fusion using both computers & instrumentsŠ That was the start, and there’s no stopping him now, as you can see in Two Heads On, an electro-jazz side-project.
