Merle Bardenoir is a French singer-songwriter, artist and poet whose universe is imbued with symbolism and fantasy.
His music ranges from psychedelic synthpop to electrofolk.
Glamourie is the ambient project of the French musician. This one updates the meaning of this archaic word for ‘enchantment’ through an electroacoustic dive into otherworldly soundscapes. Navigating between postminimalism, ancient music and psychedelic folk, the one-man band uses tonal scales, rich textures and haunting patterns to evoke fantastical themes.
Merle Bardenoir - Florilège
Florilège is an album/anthology of tracks chosen by Merle Bardenoir. ” Practicing music for over twenty years, my favorite instruments are the synthesizer and the hammered dulcimer.”
Glamourie - Imaginal Stage
The title of this electroacoustic work refers to the imago, last stage of a metamorphic insect. Here, fairy-like atmospheres emerge from their sonic chrysalides through hypnotic loops and progressive layers.
