Short biography

Sylvain Chauveau has released records on English label Type, as well as on FatCat and Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier: minimal compositions for piano, strings, wind instruments and electronics, with silence as an important musical element. more



"Post-Everything", my song-based new album, will be out on 25 August 2017 on Brocoli on LP, CD, and download.

Indian tour

I will be touring the dance show Histoires Vraies / A True Story with Cécile Loyer's company in June-July 2017 in India (Live Page).The show includes a live performance of my very personal cover of Pixies' Monkey Gone To Heaven.

Listen to me on Spotify

Support me by listening for free to my discography on Spotify. All my solo records are online and in 2015 I've been able to reach 1 million listeners on this platform. Every song played brings incomes to the artists.

Next solo record

A new solo album is in the making and the mixing process has started. This new recording will be the third and final part of a trilogy of deconstruction of the song format which begun with 2010's Singular Forms, followed in 2013 by Kogetsudai. This new opus will include collaborations by Jacques Coursil (trumpet), Chantal Acda (vocals), Monte Isola's Myriam Pruvot (vocals), and Haptic's Joseph Mills (electronics).
