Naphtaline

by EZ3kiel

supported by
/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    For nearly a decade now, the band ez3kiel has become famous by a constant evolution in its operation fields. Basically working on music, the collective quickly considered graphic design as an unavoidable edge of his work. From static imagery to animation, from record artwork to on-stage video projection, the band developed a very personal identity, both musical and visual, full of fantasy and modernity.
    With “Naphtaline”, EZ3kiel goes forward in this approach, by surprisingly adding a new dimension to its world : interactivity! The result is a genuine outsider in the music business: a boxset containing a DVD-Rom and an audio CD (its soundtrack), constituting a true front door to the band’s universe.
    The DVD-Rom features an interactive journey that sticks to the trio’s imaginary, including animated visuals, videos, and sound scapes entirely created by EZ3kiel’s bassist. The DVD makes matches between several visual and sonic sets where the audience becomes an actor of the musical themes, triggered by mouse moves. No method, no rules. The only thing you need is to let go, get transported by the feeling Yann’s work inspires you… Like a video game character, just stroll about in a maze of paintings, and discover hints and hidden animations put here and there…Let’s say fans won’t be disappointed!
    On the CD side, the band composed the initial 13 tracks for the CD-Rom. Then they gave the score to musicians to interpret it. From then, the band’s musical identity has evolved, giving birth to fugues which the band only experimented until then. Essentially acoustic, “Naphtaline” takes the audience into a world full of modernity and nostalgia, where the piano, the clarinet, the accordion, or vocals are wonderfully orchestrated. Eleven tracks, close to each one, poetic, where instrumental grace is appealing dreams and melancholy, somewhere between Erik Satie and Sigur Ros !
    EZ3kiel definitely steps further in its multidisciplinary quest,
