Bix Medard

Influenced by the likes of Bjork, Coco Rosie, Portishead, or even Serge Gainsbourg, Bix Medard points towards 'la nouvelle chanson française' in an electro-acoustic down-beat style. Bix Medard started early 2008 as a musical collaboration between Peter Clasen and Bix. The electronics and new-wave-influenced bassplaying by Peter Clasen are combined with the sweet soft voice and flute playing of Bix. Based in Brussels, the very extreme capital of Europe, Bix Medard reflects the contradictions and plurality of today’s society, a multicultural, contemporary and electronic world, associating one of the oldest instruments of the world (the flute) with electronic sounds and poetry. The texts fused with the music suggest individual choices in life, thoughts and memories of past experiences at the borders of reality and imagination. Risk-taking, death and hope are some of the themes. Both being visual artists, Peter Clasen, leader of the electronic Brussels based band Neven, and Bix, painter and musician, collaborate with other artists, photographers, dancers, painters, designers, being in a certain way a meeting point of various art forms into a musical scheme. Januari 2009, release of their debut album. April 2009, the album reaches 32 in the CMJ Charts. (College Music Journal; USA).
In November 2009 Bix Medard toures Japan, and premieres in Tokyo their second album "Y-dress?", in collaboration with fashion designers "Y-dress?" (Why dress?). The album "Bix Medard - Y-dress?" is released in early 2010. Mai 2010, the album reaches 29 in the CMJ Charts. (College Music Journal; USA).
In 2010 Bix Medard spend a lt of time recording and mixing new songs, mainly in Brussels, Liège and Hong Kong.

March 2011. Release of third album "Take a deep breath", 12 personal, breathy, melancholic, downbeat tunes.
