Swiss composer - Alain Weber - ADDICTED !!

Coming first from the rock scene (1988-1990, Dorian Gray / Rosa Rot) then electronic (1991-1994, Safe Deposit / Globulo) and later producing  compilations (2001-2003, abstract vol. I, II, III), Alain Weber made  a u-turn in his musical career. His artistic approach is in keeping with the minimalist style of  Michael Nyman or even Philip Glass. Considering  himself  a retro futurist, he presents meticulous compositions combining  classical sounds with a resolutely contemporary approach.


It is through his minimalist compositions that Alain Weber leads us into his new project entitled ‘Le Grand Tour’. This collection of electronic music is a collection of melodies which immerses us into a world of film.

‘Le Grand Tour’ makes reference to late 18th century Switzerland. Helvetia was an unmissable destination for the romantic British artists who came to admire the imposing poetic landscapes before them.

A limited edition collectors’ box set is available containing  a CD, a vinyl disc and a book on the Swiss mountains by the photographer Leo Fabrizio. This box set is completed by eight exclusive remixes including those by Kid Chocolat, POL, 45/AM/PM and  Marabou – swiss fresh fashion
