Description: A solo project by Christian RENOU (b. 1959), a French composer of extreme post-industrial music. He started out in 1979 as a member of the jazz- rock band URIA. In 1985 he established his own record label and debuted as BRUME (supported by Ge?rard GUIGGIA) with an illegal performance in an abandoned bus garage, which was prematurely terminated following police intervention but didn’t gain recognition until the 1990s. Thanks to his masterful and versatile combination of various forms of sonic expression typical for industrial and academic avant-garde electronic music he sub- stantially contributed to erasing aesthetic barriers between those two genres. His instruments include various analogue and electronic devices, as well as a self-made noise generator (”galene receiver”), field recor- dings (many of urban origin) and numerous sound processors. He would also collaborate with many friends who were also artists (e.g. Herve PERRON, Serge ANCELET, Patrick MAZALTARIM) and multi-media artists from diffe- rent artistic circles (e.g. Pat BLANCH, Baz NICHOLS, Franc?oise DUVIVIER). Between 2000 and 2007 he dropped his nome de plume and performed under his own name.
