In 2010 Lionel Laquerrière (Nestorisbianca, Geysir) joins Yann Tiersen’s live band. Breaking up the tedium of soundchecks, they begin to improvise analogue synth versions of Tiersen’s songs. As can happen what begins as fun becomes the germ of an idea and the concept of an all analogue project takes root. An offer to play at Acusmatiq Festival finds the duo in need of a third mind to complete the circuit and bring the concept to life. Friend, fellow synth obsessive and producer Thomas Poli (Dominique A, Miossec, Olivier Mellano, Montgomery, Laetitia Sheriff) joins and “Elektronische Staubband” is born.
