Aude Langlois is a French musician and composer based in Berlin. Having gained experiences in sound art, experimental band set up and theatre sound design, Aude now presents her musical poetic project where her voice is the main carrier of her musicality and expression.
Best said by Aude: “I wrote the core of this song 10 years ago in Paris,” says Aude on her debut. “The milky light was shining in this beautiful white apartment on the Rue de Bretagne. It felt calm and full of possibilities yet a melancholily of something that didn’t exist tainted this beautiful moment. I felt young and old at the same time. It is a song written on and for the guitar, its resonances and specific harmonies taking place in the body of the wood.
“Once in Berlin, I tried to record this song many times in very different settings. Vulnerability was perceived as weakness, melancholy as sadness and versatility as uncertainty. ‘Promesses’ is a song about unspoken feelings, about having an open heart to possibilities, about light being untangled with shadows. I didn’t know by then, but I had to let it sit for a while until it could be born into the world.”
“When I met Carlos Vin, I didn’t know he would be the storyteller that this song needed. Based on a self recorded demo, he gave another dimension to “Promesses” by writing a storyboard people could relate to. Gathering a pool of creatives around the song – starting by the art director Valerio – we created a multifaceted world. Our trip to the countryside near Leipzig to shoot this video became the starting point of the creative path we intend to lead together.”
‘Promesses’ is the title of the first single as well as the EP. “Releasing these songs is a big step in both my musical career as well as personally.”
