Stupid Competitions is inviting musicians to create an intuitive and intimist proposition of 12 tracks minimum, a sort of diary of sounds. The tracks are usually produced with limited tools, in home studios, kitchens, churches, or public places, with digitals and anologs machines and instruments.
Until now the artists who were invited to take part in the project were Jean Philippe Dauphin aka Anoé, Mathieu Ha aka Quasimoda, Maxime Bodson aka Squelette, and from December 2021 on, Romain Bertheau.
January 2022- December 2022
A new Monthly Loops series by French Keyboard player Romain Bertheau.
The sound of the organs’ churches is at the center of Romain Bertheau’s proposition. Purity and meditation. Some interludes make the listenner travel far away in Asia, or invite him to seat next to Romain when he was a child, playing his own contemporary composition on the piano.
