About

DSC_1875The Tremula project is a collaboration between vocalist Elsa Grégoire and pianist Lukas Rabe. In their approach to musical creation, you are invited to a musical world where it is impossible to tell where the words end and the music starts.

The idea behind the debut album “I Sing Because” was to find out and express what drives people to sing. About 60 people, family and friends, were asked to complete in french or in english the sentence “I sing because …”, and from these answers were created several a cappella interludes that are inserted between the songs throughout the album.

Auf ihrem Debut Album lassen die in New Orleans aufgewachsene Sängerin Elsa Gregoire und der Pianist Lukas Rabe die Grenzen zwischen Songwriting und Imrovisation verschwimmen. Ihre Texte, Kompositionen und Arrangements bewegen sich zwischen Poesie, experimentellen Klängen und Grooves. Warum singen Menschen? Um das herauszufinden bat Elsa Gregoire über 60 Freunde und Bekannte den Satz „ I sing because…“ weiterzuführen. Aus den Antworten entstanden die drei A Capella Interludes in französischer und englische Sprache.
