Pierre's Website

Yvalain: "Pierre Rosique is a prolific French composer who uses synths to create beautiful musical universes, as beautiful maybe as the gorgeous landscapes of the Alps where he lives (background photo by himself). He works alone and he's also involved in several fruitful collaborations. He's also a talented illustrator as everyone can state on his website dedicated to his music. His kindness is universally acknowledged by the people that are in contact with him on Facebook or elsewhere."

His news

Pierre Rosique: "Sweet memories of a childhood gone forever linger, delicious feelings of hopeful return and eternal regret. Stone by stone, the wall of our convictions cracks. The landscape we glimpse through the breccia questions us. Since the path is there, let's take it in stride.

Hello friends, Christopher and I are delighted to present "New Braunfels", the fifth track from our collaborative album "Texas Connection". We invite you to let yourself be carried away by the sweet nostalgia of this song. We're sure that everyone will recognize themselves in the evocation of these subtle moments of fragile happiness. Friendly vibes to you all"

Franck Szypura

His bio (written by Franck). I play guitar since 1997. Self-made guitarist. No musical school. All that I know in music and guitar I learned it by myself. I know some chords and pentatonic scale. It opened me many doors ! My playing is mostly based on improvisation because I am not a composer and I don't have the knowledge for that, so I use a lot of backing tracks to play above it. I always try to put the link of the channel where I find them. I play with my heart, instinct, feeling my soul.

Yvalain: "Franck and I come from the same northern France. I emigrated to the south but Franck remained faithful to the good old north and we sometimes exchange with humor a few words in the northern dialect. He is one the kindest musician that I know, he's very appreciated on Facebook, YouTube and the now gone Fandalism website. He shares his blues, prog-rock and even funk improvisations - that he plays on numerous great guitars - on his YouTube channel, to our delight. We collaborated together on one song by Peter Evans."

Mark Fussell

His bio (written by Mark). "I have lived in and around Seattle in the USA all my life. I grew up in a house with classical, pop, and folk music playing on the record player and spent countless hours absorbing the melodies and harmonies. In college, I studied music theory and classical guitar while playing bass with friends in amateur rock groups whenever possible. The advent of online music enabled me to create music and relieved me of the terror of playing in front of people! Progressive rock is my true love but anything that sounds interesting takes my attention. I am in awe of performers who do what they feel in their hearts and don’t care what people think. I have met so many great musicians online; it is such a privilege to be part of this community of musicians."

Hervé Southman

His bio... just here below

Yvalain: "Hervé is a very discrete man. He's a great pianist who plays mostly calm, dreamy music. He's involved in several collaborations, for example with the late Daisylis, and more recently with Melani Cholie."

Hervé's Facebook page

Hervé's bio (written by himself) :

"Hervé is my first name but of course “Southman” is a nickname because I also come from the North of France, like Yvalain and Franck Szypura, but I live on the Mediterranean Riviera!….

Crazy about music in my youth, I even had a rock scene group between 16 and 18 years old. I started with a little guitar and synth between 18 and 22 years old and then created my first “ambient” music encouraged by listening to Brian Eno...after having been a fan of rock from the late 70's and Frank Zappa!

Then life, marriage, work, children etc… like for everyone, music took the second place.

In 2006 I fell in love with an old small English format acoustic piano (5 octaves) in a merchant's back shop and which could fit into my living room...that was the start of everything! Although I knew neither music nor technique nor took any lessons, I could express myself by ear, but with a great handicap: the chronic inability to respect a tempo!

Fortunately I met good souls who welcomed me to a site that is now purely commercial: “Jamendo”! those were the good years of collaborative meetings and frenzied discussions in the forum; then came the rest of our meetings, on yet another level, with the more international site “Fandalism” where I think most of our common contacts with Yvalain were made, and you find them here on this great website!

The kindness, positivism and encouragement, on this site, have allowed us all to progress and share the pleasure of creation, solitary but also and above all common between amateur musicians, and to create gems with few means but a lot of motivation through friendship and exchanges throughout the world.

I took advantage of this momentum over all these years and often surprised myself in joint creations of songs with extraordinary singers despite my disability lol!

Since the closure of “Fandalism”, the dissolution in social networks which favor immediacy and superficiality, confuses us in our motivation and the feedback we have on our music. I continue to create with one or two people but I also continue to listen to my friends, even if I confess to commenting less and expressing encouragement through the unfriendly media Facebook and Youtube.

Ps: Oh yes, I forgot, the Maki lemur is my totem animal, and he likes to hide 😉 THANKS"

Christopher Holland Martinez

Chris/Dry Martinez: "I'm just a person who enjoys writing and recording songs in my basic home studio. All instruments, vocals, and production (or lack of it), is performed by yours truly, with the exception of collaborations (listed next to the songs). Many of the songs were recorded on an old Fostex 4-track cassette recorder. I finally went digital after the turn of the century. I've been making music in one form or another since the 1970's. I just want to share my simple tunes. As a good friend of mine used to say-"listen and enjoy"."

Zeus Rooster

Zeus Rooster's roots can be traced back to the summer of 1977 in a room above a garage on the West side of Houston, Texas. The 3 childhood friends had dreamed of being in a band together as long as they could remember, and in the summer of 1977 Carl Peterson got an electric guitar. Soon the others followed suit with Ed Barkley getting a 6-string electric, and Chris Martinez getting a bass. They found a drummer who lived just around the corner, and soon they were practicing their first licks in the room above the garage dubbed- "the jam room".

From the get-go the members of Zeus Rooster started writing original music. Their first composition was a blues-rock song titled "Back door boogie". Soon they had a multi-track cassette recorder and they began to record their compositions. From that day on they never looked back, and even though they all live in different cities now (40-something years later), they still continue to write and record original music together via the world-wide-web.
