Let’s talk with Paul Clouvel (part 1 : about streaming revenues)

Let's start with a subject that annoys many: revenue from music streaming. Elektramusic is a very active label online. Do you have a particular link to the internet? Yes from the start.

Drummer and improviser, Tiri Carreras started practicing the instrument as a teenager, playing immediately in a band. After a rocky start, Tiri turned to jazz and then to free improvisation.  Member of the duo zBlug, Tiri Carreras has composed this new album as a solo artist. Discover his new album here !

Rediscover… Gilles Fresnais and his single “Sonner-résonner”

Paris-born composer Gilles Fresnais studied acoustic and sound engineering.
