Extended Bio: Andre began to play music in the 70's, playing as an amateur guitar and bass. During the years 1981/1984, Andre was involved in the Punk/New Wave movment in Toulouse, (S.West of France), Playing guitar in an energetic local Psycho-Punk-Rock band: Les Miserables. In 1985, he created with the singer of the band, Hugues M., a Rock duo, Mass & Fergusson (a name that tells a lot on the energetic intentions of their music), accompaned this time by a rythm box, inventing a music that was later brought on the tops's by bands such as Beastie Boy. This Rolland CR 8000 rythm box was the first step into the electronic music. Andre had already built in 1981 an analog synth; a kind of Moog, with a famous integrated circuit sold by Realistic at this time, but didn't not use it for his compositions. En 1982, André had opened a Rock restaurant/pub in Toulouse, the Hulla Hoop, wich was the rendez-vous for the alternative scene, he had at this time the honnors of the national alternative newspaper Actuel, because it was one of the first connected place frequented by all the locals musicians of the New Wave Movement, as all those passing through the region of Toulouse. In 1987, Mass & Fergusson had to separate because Hugues started to work in Paris, and Andre went in Britanny for one year, to learn shipwrighting. In 1989, back in Toulouse, Andre began to seriously take interest to make electronic music, having bought an analog synth, a most researched today Pro-One from Sequential Circuits, little brother of the Prophet, and also akorg Poly 6. It was a revelation! So much noise in such a little thing! Andre was not long to abandon his guitar in a corner, prefering play with his new toy and his rythms box, that he had traffiked, opening it to make some personnal adjustments! After several travels in Valencia (Spain), wich was at this time the capital of the techno and endless rave parties, the turning point was reached, the Trance music had made irreversible ravages in the heart of Andre, who never recovered since! Then came the first compositions, with an Amiga 500 computer, for the raves parties between friends, with the friends of his friends, and the friends of the friends of his friends.... Many others things could be told about the hazardous life of Andre, but these pages would'nt be enough. Andre's music results from a Shock between his Raving Nature and his Faith: Listen his music, Enter his Emotional Universe, have fun, join the Trance, you should not regret it.
