Emmanuel De La Paix
As an artist I want to explore the relationship between music, nature and technology.
Technology is changing our relationship with Nature and also ourselves (part of the Nature too). Music is an intimate place of human nature.
So, in my music creations I explore the different options that
technology gives us, to find new ways to express feelings.
Rescue Pack Album has also a message: music is the Rescue Pack, the breakglass Tool of human suffering conditions.
Art in general elevates us with its unique way to recycle bad experiences in something actually great. It blooms. Like Nature does in the worst places...also
where the field is dark.
Zurich-based artist Emmanuel de la Paix is a new entry to the Broque roster and brings in an entirely new perspective on the interplay between music, nature and technology. His debut album “Rescue Pack” is a grandiose mix of shoegaze-ish post rock, ambient and experimental electronics reminiscing of the likes of Sigur Ros, Ben Frost, De La Mancha, and in some special moments, Radiohead. Inspired by the rough landscapes and unrestrained forces of nature found in both Switzerland and Iceland, the epic songs tell of the healing power behind nature as well as music, a feature which unites the two in a unique way. After having said all that, it may come as no surprise that the album was masterered by Icelands sfinest, Birgir Jón Birgirsson, who has been the sound engineer mastermind behind virtually all of Icelandic music and beyond, spanning artists like Sóley, Sigur Rós or Samaris, but also including the likes of Julianna Barwick or Efterklang. The ten songs of “Rescue Pack” tell a story that is both emotionally engaging, full of passion and always surprising in the way in which it conveys.
