Marboss - Fukushima Daiichi EP

Marboss is a major contributor to the French electro scene of the east. He uses cutting-edge music technology in the creation of innovative compositions, via sound-design, DJing and VJing techniques, demonstrating that he is a veritable sound scientist. In this second album named "Electrotherapies" (Dreaming, 2008), the artist that created the official hymn for the arrival of the TGV (The world's fastest train! ) in the Lorraine region of France, presents his new electronic concept. On April 3, 2011, Marboss presented its "electronic sound sculptures" entitled "Fukushima Daiichi" at a charity concert given at the Arsenal de Metz and organized with the association Metz-Lorraine-Japan and the city of Metz. It is an overview of the musical Fukushima nuclear accident of March 11, 2011. It’s the subject of our review.

MARBOSS - Fukushima Daiichi EP

One can notice here the use of synthetic layers, simple and catchy melodies, rhythms enriched by electro-acoustic sounds, and minimalistic vocals sung or rendered by a vocoder. Marboss invites you to discover his various states of mind: dream, distress, journeying, religious, sadness, sexual...

This album is a quirky mix of influences that should please the fans of Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode or Moby. The third Marboss album "Fukushima-Daiichi" (Dreaming, 2011), recorded live during a benefit concert for Japan given at the Arsenal in Metz (France), is a musical summary of the nuclear disaster that occurred in Japan, March 11th 2011.

One is certainly lost for words to describe such events, whereas Marboss prefers to give a sonic narrative of the reactors deterioration, through electronic sound sculpturing, immersing the listener into an "electro-radioactive" mood. It's hard not to relate to the victims, after this listening experience, which is a reminder to us all to face up our responsibilities, before this slow contamination, goes way beyond control...

This sonic page of human history has established "documentary music" as a brand new musical genre, which would be of interest to an emotive and curious audience.
