“I like it a lot! I’ll be humming this all day. And terrific production”.
Eric Whiteacre, 2012 Grammy® Award for Best Choral Recording.

 

 

 

Biography (short)
Epic Amour is a Swiss composer of orchestral music and appears on stage as a DJ. He’s inspired by movie soundtracks and the arts world. His first track called « Let there be light » is spotted by conductor and composer Eric Whiteacre, 2012 Grammy® Award for Best Choral Recording.

 

Biography (long)
Epic Amour has been a composer and a DJ for many years. He’s been playing a wide range of music, from soul to electro jazz, always driven by dancefloor rhythm. Two events are milestones in his career : a set at Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007 brought him among artists to be watched closely. In 2010, Musée de l’Elysée (museum for photography) in Lausanne, Switzerland, invited 80 photographers from all around the world with Kathy Ryan as a special guest, picture editor for New York Times Magazin. Epic Amour gave a unique musical atmosphere at this venue, bringing music and sounds to projected images. Since then, he’s been mixing music influenced by the arts world.

 

Epic Amour retired from the stage for a short while and created an exchange platform on Facebook called Swiss DJs Community dedicated to electronic music in Switzerland. After a two-year stay in Belgium where he’s been learning composition, orchestration and computer music technology, he got involved with symphonic music. He comes back with a new project and a new artist name : Epic Amour.

 

His inspirations came from a book : “The Watchers” by Jon Steele. The plot takes place in the gothic cathedral of Lausanne, Switzerland, with the watcher who spends his nights in the belfry and calls the hour over the sleeping city. Jon Steele wrote a well-documented novel and added all the ingredients for a great action-thriller novel which will be perfect for the best scenario in Hollywood.
Epic Amour decided to compose the music of a movie that does not exist yet. He doesn’t forget all the years behind his decks as a DJ and succeeds in combining epic music with a subtle touch of electro sounds.

 

Epic Amour released a track and a video without any advertisement. Before even sending it to his friends, his video is spotted by internationally acclaimed conductor and composer Eric Whiteacre, 2012 Grammy® Award for Best Choral Recording, whose album became the no. 1 classical album in the US and UK charts within a week of release. Between tours, Eric Whitacre took some time to write : “Epic Amour, I like it a lot! I’ll be humming this all day. And terrific production”.

 

With such friendly encouragement, Epic Amour’s debut looks like a very promising start with a well-deserved recognition.
