FR 🇫🇷 // Né de la rencontre de quatre percussionnistes passionnés de musiques électroniques, Medium Douce voit le jour à Paris en 2016.
Ces musiciens issus de cursus Classique et Jazz en conservatoires, proposent une musique techno, minimale, house et parfois même post rock. Chaque morceau est une composition originale. Leur formation hors du commun associe les machines aux synthétiseurs et aux percussions (tels que le marimba, le vibraphone, la batterie et autres instruments à peaux et petits accessoires).

Nourris d’influences nombreuses et diverses, ils s’inspirent aussi bien de Bonobo, Four Tet, Joris Voorn, Floating Points que de Steve Reich ou encore Stephan Bodzin.

ENG 🇬🇧 // Medium Douce was formed in Paris in early 2016 by four passionate percussionists with a love for electro music. The band members are formally trained in jazz and classical music, but the band infuses sounds from techno, minimal, house and even post- rock music genres into their original compositions.The band’s signature sound can be attributed to the unique combination of synthesizers and a variety of percussion instruments – including the marimba, vibraphone, drums heads and hand percussion instruments.

Medium Douce credits their inspiration to the likes of Bonobo, Four Tet, Joris Voorn, Floating Points. Steve Reich, and Stephan Bodzin.
