Stéphane de Trébons
Stéphane de Trebons is a pianist, author, composer, performer, sound engineer, producer and director. After long musical studies (classical piano, jazz and harmony), Stéphane was entrusted with the creation of a recording studio. He met many musicians and sometimes even invited himself to work as an instrumentalist or arranger. In 2006, thanks to disturbing personal events, a trigger occurred: he began to write and perform his own songs.
Between 2007 and 2009, Stéphane de Trebons built his sound universe brick by brick. Like a craftsman, he makes his sound recordings, his voices, his mixes… he boxes his repertoire with musicians who return the favor. The titles are piling up and he is not doing anything about it. Because the most important thing is elsewhere. He made him lie about the idea he had of himself that he was “singing false” and validated, many years later, this unexpected advice from one of his teachers who told him without even hearing it: “you should be a singer”. In 2015, Stéphane de Trebons decided to reveal his repertoire to the public. He begins by exhuming a song written and modelled in 2009; a mirror game from Pierre Mathieu’s video clip: “Make the girl dance, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby”. He rediscovers his text, his raw sincerity and his seriousness (which the news certainly does not deny), with this detached way of saying things, almost disturbing: saying what is serious looks like nothing. This is the invariable irony of Stéphane de Trebons. Approach heavy subjects with fantasy, with humour. With derision too…except in exceptional cases. by @sdetrebons
