Have you ever heard a band/artist and thought, “Why in the hell aren’t they huge?!” After listening to two tracks by Sebastien Schuller I had the same reaction.
Schuller, a native Frenchman, is a classically trained percussionist with the voice of a cross between Thom Yorke and Andrew Bird. Aside from his dream-like vocals, Schuller thrives on enhancing acoustic sounds and natural resonance with touches of electronica. Electronica seems to be an easy genre to pick up, but extremely hard to master. After listening to Schuller, you’d be hard pressed not to call him a master of his art form.
