about

« Companion » is the 4th solo album from Quentin Sirjacq in collaboration with Japanese label Schole. It follows « Far islands and Near Places » released in 2016, where appeared guests instruments like marimbas, vibraphone, glockenspiel and synthesizers along with the piano.

In this new set of songs the melodic touch and the delicate harmonies from the piano still radiate in parts but the way orchestrations and musical structures are transforming themselves during the songs is a bright new element in Sirjacq’s music.
Every track is a sort of journey starting in one place and finishing in another, slowly moving and unfolding through a mix of influences layering one another.
Gamelan, African polyrhythm, neo-classical, free jazz, electronic music or film music all collide here.

Constructed on many varied layers of musical thinking and techniques, this album is yet very unique, accessible and beautiful.

For this new work Sirjacq has called some of the finest musicians of the french scene such as Julien Loutelier, Vincent Taurelle, Arnaud Lassus and Steve Argüelles.
