Dominique Grimaud & Véronique Vilhet - AAHH!! -
Bam Balam Records BBLP 028
Lp -Vinyl edition only- October 2015.

Moog synthesizer and drums duo.

British musical magazine "The Wire" introduces them as
"veterans of the french underground".
We're OK with it since they started their musical journey at the beginning of the seventies in various "underground" French bands (Camizole, Johnny Be Crotte, Vidéo-Aventures, Royal de Luxe, etc.)

AAHH ! ! is this duo's first album.

The music is like Yin and Yan. It progresses on two separate and distinct but complementary paths. On one hand, the driving and captivating rhythms of the drums provides the duo its foundation with deep, low-end filled harmonics beats calling for hypnotic abandon. On the other, the warm and voluptuous sounds of the analog Moog and Synthi AKS synthesizers, alternatively blazing and light, carry the listener to unfathomable worlds.

The band wanted an uncompromising album, where the mysteries laying within the music would only be revealed through numerous attentive listening sessions.

To guarantee their aspiration met success, the band asked for and received the expert support of two sound alchemists: David Fenech and Patrick Muller.

Dominique Grimaud created a 2 volumes books/collages in 1977 and 1978, dedicated to the music scene that emerged post French cultural revolution of May '68, entitled: Un certain rock (?) français (A certain French Rock(?))
He co-wrote with Eric Deshayes: "L'Underground Musical en France" (The musical underground in France), published by "Le Mot et le Reste" in 2008.

******************************************************************
La revue anglaise The Wire les présente comme
"veterans of the french underground".
Cela nous convient, puisqu'ils ont débuté leurs aventures musicales au début des années soixante-dix dans des groupes français "underground" (Camizole, Johnny Be Crotte, Vidéo-Aventures, Royal de Luxe, etc.).

AAHH ! ! est le premier album de ce duo.

La musique, avance de manière proche des forces Yin et Yan, sur deux voies indépendantes et complémentaires. D'une part, les rythmes immuables et entêtants de la batterie qui permettent la stabilité du duo et dont les sonorités profondes, les harmoniques graves appellent à une certaine hypnose. D'autre part, les sons chauds et voluptueux des synthétiseurs analogiques Moog et Synthi AKS, tour à tour torrides et aériens, transportent vers des mondes que l'on imagine, insondables.

Le groupe a voulu cet album sans concessions, souhaitant que ses arcanes musicales se dévoilent lentement au fil d'écoutes attentives et patientes.

Dans cette démarche le duo a reçu l'appui et la complicité de deux experts de
l'alchimie des sons, David Fenech et Patrick Muller.

Dominique Grimaud a réalisé deux livres/collages consacrés aux formations musicales issues de l'Après-Mai 68 "Un certain rock (?) français", 2 volumes (en 1977 et 1978). Il est l'auteur avec Eric Deshayes de "L'Underground Musical en France" qui parait aux éditions Le Mot et le Reste en 2008.
