From DNA to the Berlin School

"From DNA to the Berlin School, life is made of sequences"

Christophe Bargeault's testimony
To immerse myself in the universe of Sequentia Legenda

SL: "How did you discover my music?"

Christophe Bargeault: "My name is Christophe and I am passionate about music, mainly electronic. Although this music does not constitute my DNA, it is nevertheless part of my daily life and I consider it as vital, as air and water can be. This passion has led me on a perpetual quest, from my first memories forty years ago, to the present day where musical networks lead me from surprise to discovery.

It is this quest that led me to meet the Patch Work Music association three years ago, and to immerse myself in the universe of Sequentia Legenda.

I discovered the Berlin School late in life, twenty-five years ago, at a flea market, when a record dealer, looking at my T-shirt with a certain JMJ on it, handed me a vinyl and said: "Here, this is for you". I was holding Klaus Schulze's Picture Music in my hands. That was the start of a new musical life."


 
Beyond the stars Berlin School music


THE UNIVERSE OF SEQUENTIA LEGENDA
Back to my first electronic emotions

SL: "How do you feel when listening to my sound worlds?"

Christophe Bargeault: " The music and the universe of Sequentia Legenda are fantastic in that they instantly take me back to my first electronic emotions. Like Proust's madeleine, the sounds, sequences and rhythms take me back in time, with this incomparable flavour, while keeping this very current signature."




THE RETURN Berlin School music

THE RETURN (LONG VERSION)
A return to the roots, a return to the essential

Christophe Bargeault: "Laurent, you offered us at the beginning of this month of July a long version of your track "The Return". This particular track finds its genesis in 1984 when the idea of your project "Over There" was born in your mind. In 2017, an experimental version of The Return was released and in 2019, your 1984 project was realised. Finally, comes this long version from 2021.

Is this song one of the most important of your career? Listening to this new version, we feel that you still had things to express."

SL: "Indeed, you are right, I still had things to say, emotions to share. This title says a lot about my state of mind and my musical vision: a return to the roots, a return to the essential, in every respect. I reworked this track not only in its duration, but also in its depth, in its "soul" if I may say so. There isn't necessarily an excess of artifice as one might expect when a longer version is released. The challenge was, on the contrary, to make this title "grow" a little more, with subtlety, with sensitivity and creativity. I can't say if it's the most outstanding track in my discography, but in any case, it's the one that Tommy and I played in concert with great complicity and aptness. At the end of the concert in Tübingen, Till Kooper, a musician friend of mine, said something beautiful to me that really touched me: "It's as if I'd just heard the third track of Klaus Schulze's Trancefer exclusively!", and Tommy added: "It made me think back to the nightly rehearsals with Klaus, and tonight I felt in a trance again!"

Christophe Bargeault: "You mention in the notes of this new version the use of a new emulated instrument: the Korg modular PS-3300. At a time when physical reissues of mythical synthesizers are commonplace, you use almost exclusively virtual instruments. What led you to make this choice? Doesn't this "distance" between the composer and his instrument, because of this difference in interaction, slow down your creativity?"

SL: "When I was 18 years old, I had a lot of analog instruments: the ARP Odyssey, the Korg PS-3200, MS20 and SQ10, the Oberheim Two Voices and so on. When the MIDI standard came along, I gradually got rid of my analogue synths and bought digital instruments. Then life took me away from music for a while. Just ten years ago, I started making music again and discovered virtual instruments. Their possibilities seduced me immediately, and I was able to work happily with these emulations while combining my knowledge of analog and digital synthesis.

I don't really perceive any distance between my instruments, virtual as they are, and myself. I have taken my marks, my routines and I always discover with pleasure the vast field of action which is offered to me. With the large and beautiful palette of possibilities to express myself, I have the freedom to sculpt my sequences at will and program certain things that I feel cannot be easily done with a hardware synth. But this is subjective, of course, it's my feeling, the fruit of my experience.

Creativity for me is a matter of sensitivity and it is the language of the heart and soul that takes precedence over everything else."

 

THE RETURN (Long Version)


Sequentia Legenda

MY VISION FOR THE BERLIN SCHOOL IN 2021
Self-expression, passion to share and authenticity

Christophe Bargeault: "Compared to what it was when it was born, how do you see the Berlin School of 2021?"

SL: "I believe in this beautiful musical movement and I am still convinced that it has great days ahead. The technology may have changed, but the purely musical approach remains much the same. Once again, as far as I am concerned, it is not the instruments that come first, but the self-expression, the passion to share, the authenticity. CELESTIAL will be my vision for the Berlin School in 2021.

I am already looking ahead to 2022 with RESONANCE, where I invite the audience to resonate with my music, with the Berlin School."





 

Extract of the first track "Three Astral Arches" from Sequentia Legenda's next musical opus "CELESTIAL".

I am very happy to announce that the work on my next opus "CELESTIAL" is progressing in a positive way. The result corresponds to the idea that had germinated a few months earlier in my mind, it is the reflection of what I wish to communicate emotionally and artistically. A new experience, a new sharing, that I will have the pleasure of presenting and highlighting on 21 September 2021, the date of the album's release.

Three Astral Arches by Sequentia Legenda

Dear listeners,

I am pleased to announce that my new album "
CELESTIAL" is being finalised. A new musical adventure is coming to fruition, where challenges, surprises and hardships had to be faced.

With this new opus, I tried to get out of my comfort zone a bit.
The album consists of three tracks: "
Three Astral Arches", "Symphonic Dawn of the Stars" and "VOICES 55".



CELESTIAL by Sequentia Legenda

CELESTIAL
Three Astral Arches

The first track "Three Astral Arches" is almost finished.
It is a richly pigmented sound painting with a spiritual and mystical framework and atmosphere, created with the instrumental palette of analogue synths.

With a duration of 23:23, the three parts "Yasna", "Feldi" and "Jerrish" follow one another, each delivering their own atmospheres to dress this sound painting with a mystical patina and reinforcing the resonance of the harmonic tones.

The introduction is rather confusing
– I'll leave you with the surprise – it is built with effects from the AKS and ARP Odyssey mainly. The chords of the string instruments and the choirs unfold, gradually giving way to the different sequences that make up the rhythmic framework. The cymbals then reinforce the tempo. The velvety string ensembles of the famous Solina emerge in the distance to distil melodic lines here and there supported by subtle reverberation. The climax is reached with the addition of further drum elements to make way for the ethereal and spiritual finale consisting of choirs, effects, and a lulling of various crystalline sequences.

CELESTIAL
Entrance Into New Horizon

Dear listeners,

I am very pleased to announce that the work on my next opus "CELESTIAL" is progressing in a positive way, both musically and in terms of layout, giving me pleasure and satisfaction. The result corresponds to the idea that had germinated a few months earlier in my mind, it is the reflection of what I wish to communicate emotionally and artistically.
A new experience, a new sharing, that I will have the pleasure of presenting and bringing to light on September 21, 2021, the date of the album's release.

"CELESTIAL" is a symbiosis of different mythical instruments, all of them coming from the analogue era, such as the EMS Synthi AKS, the Moog modular, the ARP Odyssey, to name but a few. It's true that at the moment I use almost only virtual instruments, but these are carefully selected to match the analogue sound grain so typical of the mid-70s. I would also like to add that it is the turn of the fabulous Korg PS-3300 modular to join the set of analogue synthesizers. This is a first. This modular offers a wide sound palette and a great harmonic density: a "big" sound. I had a lot of fun working with this remarkable and truly unique instrument. I would like to add that when I was between 18 and 20 years old, I bought the Korg PS-3200 the "little brother" of the PS-3300 modular. I would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you again to my father who helped me financially. I can invite you to discover a little more about the history of the encounter between the PS-3200 and myself by reading the blog article.

Ein Rückblick auf ETHEREAL

"Dieses Opus wird eine immersive und emotionale Erlebnis, eine Hommage an den legendären Moog Modular.
ETHEREAL ist ein Album voller Emotionen, die durch die Sequenzen und die klangliche Textur präsent sind.
Der Moog Modular bringt eine besondere Farbe in die Klangpalette dieses neuen Werks. Ich wollte ein Ergebnis erzielen, das mit meiner Vision der Berliner Schule übereinstimmt:
eine Erweiterung dieser musikalischen Bewegung.
"

Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda)

ETHEREAL
Der beste Weg, um dem Alltag zu entfliehen

Tom Schakel: "ETHEREAL ist für mich das kompletteste und spannendste aus einer Reihe von hochklassigen Alben von Sequentia Legenda.
Ich höre es nach wie vor sehr oft und kann dabei bestens dem Alltag entfliehen. Immer wieder stoße ich dabei gefühlt auf Feinheiten, die mir vorher nicht aufgefallen sind.

Während mich die ersten beiden Tracks mit ihrer Leichtigkeit und ihren hypnotischen Drums langsam aber sicher hinfort ziehen, ist der dritte Track für mich das pure Schweben im Raum. „Elevation“ klingt ein wenig anders, aber gerade das macht dieses Album für mich so außergewöhnlich.

Die knapp 70 Minuten Spielzeit von Ethereal sind für mich eine komplette Reise und halten einem Vergleich mit der Alten Berliner Schule locker stand.  5 Sterne *****"


Etwas mehr über Tom Schakel :
"Begonnen hat mein Interesse für die alte Berliner Schule gegen 2007, als ich bei einem Freund war und er Timewind von Klaus Schulze auflegte. Ich war sofort gefangen und bin in dieser Form vorher noch nie so „weggezogen“ worden. Da ich musikalisch sehr offen bin und neben klassischer Musik auch Jazz, Blues, Independent, Heavy Metal, Kraut und Psychedellicrock höre, habe ich mich daraufhin auch mit elektronischer Musik befasst und auseinandergesetzt. Ich bin bis heute ein großer Fan von diesem Sound und höre sie fast ausschließlich am Abend zum Entspannen oder beim Einschlafen, da dieser Sound für mich fast schon meditativ ist."

ETHEREAL
Meine Hommage an Robert Moog, an den Moog Modular

Tom Schakel: "Welchen Platz nimmt ETHEREAL für Dich in Deiner Discography ein?"
Sequentia Legenda: "
Dieses Album ist letztlich meine Hommage an Robert Moog, genauer gesagt an seine imposante Klangmaschine : Der berühmte Moog Modular. Dieses Instrument nimmt einen strategischen Platz im Herzen der Atmosphäre von ETHEREAL ein und spielt eine wesentliche Rolle: die des Rückgrats des globalen Soundtracks. Es hat mir großen Spaß gemacht, die enormen Möglichkeiten der Arturia-Emulation auszuschöpfen, um das warme und satte Klangkorn des Moogs zu extrahieren. Die subtilen harmonischen Variationen, die einigen Effekten hinzugefügt werden, verleihen der einzigartigen Klangfarbe des Modulars Leben. Der Sequenzer mit seinen bemerkenswerten Möglichkeiten erlaubte mir, Linien von Noten zu formen, die sich mit Präzision und Reichtum zum Ganzen überlagern. Wie ich gerne sage, ist der Sequenzer nach wie vor mein Lieblingswerkzeug, und mit dem Moog Modular ist es ein wahrer Genuss!

Dies ist auch eine neue Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schlagzeuger Tommy Betzler. Im zweiten Track "Around the Second Moon" konnte Tommy seinen ganzen Schwung und Impuls für ein Ergebnis einbringen, das ich als "Kosmisch Rock" bezeichnen möchte. Tommy und ich waren bei der Preisverleihung der Schallwelle Awards in der Rhur dabei. Am Ende schaffte es ETHEREAL in die Top 10 der besten Alben neben solchen Größen wie Tangerine Dream, Johannes Schmoelling und Mike Oldfield. Es war eine große Leistung.
"


Tom Schakel
: "Du hast mir einmal geschrieben, dass der dritte Track auf ETHEREAL von den anderen beiden Tracks abweicht und für Dich eine Art Experiment war. Was hat Dich dazu bewogen, diesen Schritt zu gehen?"
Sequentia Legenda: "Mit diesem dritten Track "Elevation" wollte ich eine neue Erfahrung machen, indem ich mir eine noch kosmischere Atmosphäre als sonst vorstellte. Ich habe mich am Klangraum orientiert, um eine möglichst breite, dichte Wiedergabe zu erhalten. Der mystische und sich entwickelnde Verlauf wird mit einem Mix aus atmosphärischen Schichten realisiert, die flüchtigen Klänge kommen aus den beiden Sequenzern mit einem Duo von modularen Moog, das Ganze wird durch einen sehr langen Hall transportiert. In diesem sich ständig verändernden Klangbild laden ätherische Pads und Chöre, unterstützt von sonischer Perkussion, den Zuhörer zu einem Aufstieg zu den Sternen ein.
"

Tom Schakel: "Wie gehst Du an Deine Aufnahmen heran, Hast Du den Track das Konzept eines Albums von Beginn an im Kopf, oder entwickelt sich das Ganze beim Komponieren und Produzieren?"
Sequentia Legenda: "Ich habe zwischen zwei Alben einige Zeit verstreichen lassen. Ich warte auf Inspiration, die mich zu den Tastaturen führt. Es ist ein besonderer Moment, ein neuer Start für ein neues musikalisches Abenteuer. Ich habe ein paar Ideen, ein paar Inspirationen, die sich während der Entstehungsphase nach und nach aufbauen. Das Ganze wird sich weiterentwickeln, wird verfeinert, um einem neuen Titel Leben einzuhauchen, dann einem neuen Opus. Ich lade Sie ein, einen weiteren Artikel zum Thema Inspiration
hier zu lesen."

A return to ETHEREAL

"This opus will be an immersive and emotional experience, a tribute to the legendary Moog modular.
ETHEREAL is an album full of emotions, which are present through the sequences and the sonic texture.
The Moog Modular brings a particular color to the sound palette of this new opus. I wanted to achieve a result in harmony with my vision of the Berlin school:
an extension of this musical movement.

ETHEREAL
Best way to escape from everyday life

Tom Schakel: "ETHEREAL is for me the most complete and exciting of a series of high class albums by Sequentia Legenda. I still listen to it very often and it is the best way to escape from everyday life. Again and again I come across subtleties that I hadn't noticed before.

While the first two tracks slowly but surely draw me away with their lightness and hypnotic drums, the third track is pure floating in space for me. "Elevation" sounds a little different, but that's what makes this album so exceptional for me.

The almost 70 minutes of playing time of ETHEREAL are a complete journey for me and easily stand up to a comparison with the Old Berlin School. 5 stars *****"


A little more about Tom Schakel :
"My interest in the old Berlin School started around 2007 when I was at a friend's house and he put on Timewind by Klaus Schulze. I was immediately caught and have never been so "drawn away" in this way before. Since I am musically very open-minded and listen to jazz, blues, independent, heavy metal, kraut and psychedelic rock as well as classical music, I then also got involved with electronic music and got to grips with it. I am still a big fan of this sound and listen to it almost exclusively in the evening to relax or when falling asleep, as this sound is almost meditative for me."

ETHEREAL
My tribute to Robert Moog, to the Moog Modular

Tom Schakel: "What place does ETHEREAL hold for you in your discography?"
Sequentia Legenda: "
This album is ultimately my tribute to Robert Moog, more precisely to his imposing sound machine: The famous Moog Modular. This instrument occupies a strategic place in the very heart of ETHEREAL's atmosphere, playing an essential role: that of the backbone of the overall soundtrack. I was delighted to exploit the vast possibilities of the Arturia emulation in order to extract the warm and ample grain of the Moog. The subtle harmonic variations added to some effects give life to the unique timbre of the modular. The sequencer with its remarkable possibilities allowed me to sculpt lines of notes that were superimposed with precision and richness on the whole. As I like to say, the sequencer remains my favourite tool and with the Moog Modular, it's a real treat!

This is also a new collaboration with drummer Tommy Betzler. In the second track "Around the Second Moon" Tommy was able to add all his verve and impulse for a result that I would like to call "Planing Rock". Tommy and I were present at the award ceremony of the Schallwelle Awards in the Rhur. In the end, ETHEREAL made it into the Top 10 of the best albums alongside such greats as Tangerine Dream, Johannes Schmoelling and Mike Oldfield. It was a great achievement.
"


Tom Schakel
: "You once wrote me that the third track on ETHEREAL was different from the other two tracks and was a kind of experiment for you. What made you take this step?"
Sequentia Legenda: "With this third track "Elevation", I wanted to try a new experience by imagining an atmosphere even more cosmic than usual. I oriented my research on the sound space, in order to obtain a wide, dense rendering, a result which is the most spatial possible. The mystical and evolving progression is realized with a mixture of atmospheric pads, the fleeting sounds are issued from the two sequencers with a duo of modular Moog, the whole transported by a very long reverberation. In this ever-changing sonic canvas, ethereal pads and choirs, supported by sonic percussion, invite the listener to an ascent to the stars.
"

Tom Schakel: "How do you approach your recordings, do you have the track the concept of an album in mind from the beginning, or does it all develop during composing and producing?"
Sequentia Legenda: "I let some time pass between two albums. I wait for the inspiration to guide me to the keyboards. It is a particular moment, a new start for a new musical adventure. I have some ideas, some tracks of inspirations, which are built little by little during the phase of creation. The whole will evolve, will be refined to give life to a new title, then to a new opus.
I invite you to read another article related to inspiration here."

Inspiration créatrice

"Savoir écouter son cœur, être patient,
ressentir et saisir le bon moment.
La fugacité, la beauté, la pureté de cet instant,
c’est le signe de l’inspiration et de la créativité.
"

Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda)



Sequentia Legenda Berlin School music
Écouter son cœur, attendre le bon moment, ressentir et créer.

L’INSPIRATION CRÉATRICE
Fugacité, beauté et pureté

Sequentia Legenda: "L’inspiration se manifeste sans vraiment prévenir, elle est fugace, inaccessible, bien souvent spontanée et puissante. J'avoue que c'est un processus assez surprenant, voir même inexplicable. L'élément déclencheur, peut-être une émotion, une image, un moment de vie. C'est sauvage et indomptable. C'est au fond de moi, c'est ancré, c'est latent. C'est finalement mon âme, mon cœur qui demande à s'exprimer. L'inspiration va être le guide pour la suite de mon travail, et petit à petit la composition va prendre forme. Alors débute une nouvelle histoire, une création qui va prendre forme avec son imprévisible gestation. Au travers du processus de création, c'est une redécouverte de soi, une perpétuelle renaissance. Être artiste, à mes yeux, c'est une prise de conscience et accepter d'attendre, de croire, de rester humble dans l'espoir d'un signe – l'appel de l'inspiration. C'est une profondeur d'esprit. Une redécouverte. Une voie qui est ouverte vers une nouvelle histoire. C'est un renouveau."

C'est une approche inédite empreinte de Sagesse. Au moment où je rédige cet article, la persévérance et le labeur m'indique que je suis à nouveau sur une voie qui semble être vivifiante et porteuse d'Espoir."

Creative inspiration

"You have to know how to listen to your heart, not be in a hurry, wait for the right moment, feel it and grasp it.
The fleetingness of that moment which is beautiful and pure is the sign of inspiration and creativity.
"

Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda)



Sequentia Legenda Berlin School music
Listening your heart, waiting for the right moment, feeling and creating.

CREATIVE INSPIRATION
Fugitive, inaccessible, spontaneous

Sequentia Legenda: "Inspiration manifests itself without really warning, it is fleeting, inaccessible, often spontaneous and powerful. I must admit that it is a rather surprising process, even inexplicable. The triggering element, perhaps an emotion, an image, a moment of life. It is wild and indomitable. It's deep inside me, it's anchored, it's latent. It is finally my soul, my heart that asks to express itself. Inspiration will be the guide for the continuation of my work, and little by little the composition will take shape. Then begins a new story, a creation that will take shape with its unpredictable gestation. Through the creative process, it is a rediscovery of self, a perpetual rebirth. To be an artist, in my eyes, is an awareness and an acceptance to wait, to believe, to remain humble in the hope of a sign – the call of inspiration. It is a depth of spirit. A rediscovery. A path that is open to a new history. It is a renewal."

KEEP IN TOUCH WITH MY KEYBOARDS
Indulgent with myself, listening to my heart

Sequentia Legenda: "Despite my current difficulties, I have tried to keep in touch with my keyboards. Without necessarily looking for a result, but while remaining voluntary, nourishing myself with my feelings. I try to remain indulgent with myself, listening to my heart. It's a new approach imbued with Wisdom. As I write this article, perseverance and hard work indicate to me that I am once again on a path that seems to be invigorating and bearer of Hope."

MORE THAN AN ART, A VECTOR OF HOPE AND LOVE
Offer a moment of dream and escape


Sequentia Legenda: "For me, music is much more than an art, it is a vector of Hope and Love. Music has always been part of my life. I am honoured to be able to live what God has given me. It is a chance, a gift, and I am delighted to be able to deliver a sincere musical message. It is a shared pleasure: to offer a moment of dream and escape."





A video retrospective of my six years on the Berlin School stage

My 8 physical albums are for the occasion presented in a video with the association of Corina Chirila's pictorial works. I am delighted to have been able to share during these first six years my sound universes, my own musical vision and thus offer a part of dream and escape to the listeners.

For me music remains a vector of Hope and Love.

Long live music, long live the Berlin School!
