ABOUT THE ARTISTS PERFORMING:
LoW Entertainment (pronounced “love”) is a collective of three composers – Alexandre Lier, Nicolas Weil and Sylvain Ohrel – founded in 1998 and oriented towards music for films. They have notably composed the scores for Party Girl, directed by Claire Burger, Marie Amachoukeli and Samuel Theis (Caméra d’Or at the Festival de Cannes 2014), Hippocrates by Thomas Lilti, The Stroller Strategy” by Clément Michel and Hey Good Looking! by Lisa Azuelos; and the Canal Plus series “Hard”, directed by Cathy Verney. Their musical style encompasses electric instruments, vintage synthesizers and traditional orchestration to offer a musical hue that takes in references to the French orchestral pop of the 1960s and 70s (Serge Gainsbourg, Jean-Claude Vannier, François de Roubaix) and more contemporary sounds from the current French scene (Kavinsky, Air, Sébastien Tellier).
HiTnRuN is a musical collective created in 2012 in a central Paris studio, composed of Philippe (AKA Ramshakle) Deshaies, Benoit Rault (AKA Ben’s Symphonic Orchestra) and Lionel Flairs (AKA Flairs) with the aim of mixing up their musical abilities, quirkiness, off-beat colors, flutes, bass, electronics, guitars, drumming and the wide variety of dodgy composing techniques that make this trio such a fine blend. In 2014, they produced the soundtrack for Love at First Fight a feature by Thomas Cailley. The movie was a blast in Cannes, then in Theaters, and won numerous local awards. Its fine blend thus established, HiTnRuN settled in the Quartier Montorgueil at the very heart of gay Paris, filled its studio-workshop with old music toys, vintage guitars & amps, old & modern synths and drum machines, pianos and a MCI 500 analog desk to brew up its delicious, non-corporate musical concoctions.
