My music

Since my early childhood I like electronic sounds, synths and computers like the C-64 with the wonderful SID chip. The first list is about songs I was listening to when I was 15-21 years old. While I also liked some dance music at that time, I was listening mostly listening underground groups like Front 242 and Skinny Puppy and then in high school Yello, Information Society, Cyberaktif, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Clan of Xymox, to name a few, were added.

This is a short and incomplete list of songs that had some influences on my past :

Then when I was 21, I went into my first « rave » party. It was one of the first here in Québec. Techno is what you hear the most but there are many styles in techno and the one that can give me shivers would be called « trance ». Again there are different styles in trance but I won’t go into that. I also enjoy « ambiant » a lot.
