I’m thrilled to share with you the story behind my latest song, “Fil Rouge,” a collaboration with the incredibly talented French sound artist, DeePhi Music. This musical gem was born during our inspiring time at the esteemed “Producer Camp” held at the legendary Real World Studios in England, owned by none other than the iconic Peter Gabriel.
“Fil Rouge” isn’t just a song; it’s a heartfelt creation that emerged from a place of shared emotions and a strong desire to make a positive impact on the lives of those who battle anxiety and depression. The French term “Fil Rouge” translates to “Red Thread,” symbolizing the intricate connections that bind us all together.
As DeePhi Music and I embarked on this creative journey, we aimed to craft more than just a melody. We wanted to weave an auditory experience that could serve as a source of comfort and solace for those grappling with the weight of these challenging emotions. Music, after all, possesses a remarkable ability to heal, uplift, and connect people in ways that words alone sometimes can’t.
We drew inspiration from the serene and rejuvenating atmosphere of the Real World Studios. Surrounded by the tranquil English countryside, we channeled our thoughts and feelings into every note, every chord progression, and every subtle nuance of the song. The result is a composition that’s both ethereal and grounded, uplifting and soothing. Of course, this song would not have been possible without the collaboration of the entire team of musicians, sound engineers and technical team of Real World Studios such as Thrdl!fe (Arranger), Howey Gill (Drums), Justin Adams (Electric Guitar), John Baggott (Piano), John Baggott and DeePhi Music (Modular Synth), Adrian Utley (E Bow) and our part: Lunattack (Lead Vocals) and Barbara Duchow and Delphine Meunier (Composers).
Our motivation was fueled by the thought of all the individuals out there who silently bear the burden of anxiety and depression. We wanted “Fil Rouge” to be a musical reminder that they’re not alone, that there’s a thread of unity connecting all of us, and that even in our darkest moments, there’s a glimmer of hope waiting to be discovered.
“Fil Rouge” is a testament to the power of music as a healing force. Its melodies can embrace you like a warm hug, its harmonies can resonate with the depths of your soul, and its rhythm can guide you through the ebb and flow of your emotions. This song isn’t just a creation; it’s a vessel of empathy and understanding.
We also released a mesmerizing remix version of “Fil Rouge” called the “Angel Edit”, crafted with love by the ingenious DeePhi Music. This reimagined version takes the essence of the original and elevates it to new heights, creating an even more immersive sonic experience.
If you’re seeking a musical sanctuary, a place where your heart can find solace and your spirit can find wings, I invite you to listen to “Fil Rouge” and its captivating “Angel Edit.” They’re waiting for you on all major digital platforms, ready to wrap you in a musical embrace and remind you that you’re never alone on this journey.
May the threads of our music intertwine with your soul, guiding you towards healing, hope, and unity. Stay tuned for more musical adventures, and remember, you’re stronger than you know.
