It all began with his grandfather’s organ and his father’s two-strings guitar. Antoine Bellanger started music to spend his nerves on something, obviously. Self- educated and quite lonesome in the outskirts of Angers,FR, he quickly drifted into some- thing more lo-fi and electronic. After several adventures in several bands, he named himself GRATUIT.
On this fourth LP, he left his former synths aside and privileged, ran- domly, the tuba combined with some live code (Supercollider). He then initiated the writing of a tale, some kind of initiatory journey.
A prince, or maybe a king, or maybe a knight gets bored and bemoans his fate. Day after day, he sees the sun in front of him, over the river. He decided to run after him, like a vow to turn back the hands of time.
With this new equipment, Antoine imagined a simple and stripped-down staging, a starter to this live performance. From this whirlwind came "Sur Les Bras Morts".
