First half 2017 Highlights of Sequentia Legenda

Soon the holidays for me and my family.
They supported me in this musical adventure and I thank them.

Here's the Highlights of the first half of 2017.

 

EXTENDED was nominated in the category of "International Albums"

 


The year 2017 began with a great surprise from Germany and more precisely from the planetarium of Dortmund where the Schallwelle Awards took place, an award dedicated to electronic music.


My double album EXTENDED was ranked 9th in international albums, behind Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis and other Enigma. This award has provided me joy and pride and it is a positive impulse for my next album ETHEREAL.



Collaboration with Kurtz Mindfieds


At the beginning of the year, I was given the opportunity to collaborate with the French artist Kurtz Mindfieds (Jean-Luc Briançon) for a special project as the time was fixed and relatively short for my style of music.
9 minutes to compose what would become Out of the Silence. The work was interesting, the symbiosis between our two sonorous universes was instantaneous. This title is on the last vinyl of Jean-Luc.A video clip is available here.



Stages performance


With Tommy Betzler, we worked on our stage representation.
Appart Concert in Mulhouse (France) Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda) and Tommy Betzler
For this, an intimate concert took place in an apartment in Mulhouse. Family, loved ones and friends were invited to share 1h30 of music in a new setting. The "Appart-Concert" was a great success and we were able to share our views during the lunch. Here are some photos.
 
Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda) in Masevaux (France)

Afterwards, an invitation to Masevaux (Alsace, France) was made to me to come and play in the evening of 21 June on the occasion of the "Fête de la Musique". So it was in solo that I performed in a torrid heat (+ 30 °) a large part of the night. It was the ultimate rehearsal with the Hamm festival. 
Here is a video clip. Here is a video clip.

Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda) und Tommy Betzler in Hamm (Germany)

I performed for the first time on stage in Hamm (Germany) on July 1st, surrounded by German drummer Tommy Betzler (who accompanied Klaus Schulze on the tour in the 80's). We played two tracks from EXTENDED. The atmosphere of the Winnies Schwingungenparty was warm and the public gave us a wonderful welcome. This first concert was a beautiful and rich experience.

ETHEREAL my 4th album


On 21 July 2017 my fourth album "ETHEREAL"
is available in its digital and physical version.


This is an opus dedicated to the Modular Moog. The soundtrack is focused on sequences delivered by the modular supported by the ethereal pads and the seraphic choirs. 3 tracks, 70 minutes of pure Berlin School music, over a hundred hours of listening, a lot of energy and sensitivity. A collaboration with Thomas Tommy Betzler (drummer of Klaus Schulze in 80 ').
