Welcome aboard the AstroVoyager.
This atypical and creative artist invites you to explore the infinity of his audio-visual universe, to gravitate to the very limits of electro-acoustic, of electro-symphonic and now for the third of his projects, of ElectrOpera.
The magnitude is on a par with the great masters of this art such as Era, Enigma, Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre, or of the most celebrated film score composers like Hans Zimmer or Eric Serra. AstroVoyager’s sound painting alternates intimate orchestrations with polished, rhythmic compositions enriched with a symphonic overlay that the inclusion of acoustic instruments turns into a bright path to better guide the "audi-spectator" through the dream.
Born in Metz in 1974, Fagnoni is an architect of sound and vision. From the piano keyboard to those of computers and synthesisers, he fed on the electro explosion of the 1980s. In 2000, after several collaborations on keyboard with various groups, he created his own solo virtual formation, AstroVoyager. He was at last able to give free rein to his talents as a composer with a sole ambition: to take "audi-spectators" on a journey without them ever having to get out of their chair.
And the first maxi-CD, self-produced in 2003, hit home. The first album produced by the French label CosmXploreR was Temporal Gravitation 2 three years later. That was followed in 2010 by a second concept album, Symphontronic Lunation, in which the integration of multimedia crowned the virtual magnitude of AstroVoyager by following a lunar cycle through panoramic video projections to better take us beyond time.
AstroVoyager is back in 2012 offering ElectrOpera, a concept in four EPs (one per year). At the heart of this new project, an even closer integration of orchestral instruments, of songs without words and of electro-abstract videos consolidate the musical and visual hallmark of AstroVoyager.
