Location: gatineau, quebec, canada
 
Press Release:
 
Montreal, Canada – Kassure Productions is proud to announce the release of VOLTZ, Keravel’s fourth CD.

Keravel, an alchemist of sounds, has once again pushed his exploration of song structures and rhythmic creations to another level. With 16 dynamic instrumental songs, this is certainly Keravel’s most accomplished album to date.

A synth wizard, he offers more complex song structures, unexpected melodic twists, interesting rhythms, and numerous original instruments. As a composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist, Keravel’s unique style is unparalleled. His approach to music is emotional, epic, cinematic and often melancholic.

Keravel called on Pierre Messier at Studios Piccolo for mixing this opus. The mastering of the album was done by Marc Thériault at Le Lab Mastering.

VOLTZ is produced under the Kassure Productions record label.

You can order VOLTZ through CDBaby, Amazon, and CD Universe. You can download VOLTZ from iTunes, Rhapsody, eMusic, Napster & Spotify.

Biography:
 
Born in Quebec of a Breton father and a mother of Italian descent, Serge is, from childhood, immersed in a multicultural world. Early on, he discovers classical, Russian, gipsy, French and jazz music. Drawn to everything that is artistic, his first attempts are at painting, sculpting and writing plays for the theatre.

All art forms interest and fascinate him. He searches for all things different; his perspective is simple and spontaneous. He moves from one medium to another with ease and enthusiasm.

Like all young musicians, he forms a progressive folk music band, and as all young bands, its existence is short lived. He will however perform at live shows. This experience confirms Serge’s own vision of music and so, he decides to pursue his musical evolution on his own.

Improvisation is the open door to his beloved piano. A period of ephemeral compositions begins. Everything has to appear instantaneously, at that moment, and suddenly disappear. During this time, Serge will develop further his talents as both a musician and a composer.

His musical influences are diverse. He is intrigued by the vision of piano artist Keith Jarrett and by Joni Mitchell’s sensitivity and courage. He praises Peter Gabriel and Bjork for their efforts in trying to change conventional music.

Serge has great interest in the computer world. He first discovers graphics, experimenting with various software programs for four years, which leads him to explore forms and colours.

Then, it happens: software such as Reason from Propellerhead and Logic from Emagic arrive on the market. It’s the breakthrough Serge has been waiting for. He dives into this musical universe, full of sounds and rhythms that are varied and provocative. In 2003, Serge creates his first demo followed by a second one in 2004.

Prolific, he decides to become his own producer, not having the patience to wait for answers from other record companies. He feels the need to introduce and share his music with as many people as possible.

In 2005, Serge forms, with Andrée Ann Campeau, the record company Kassure Productions, dedicated to producing non-conformist music. His hopes are that this company will provide independent composers and musicians the means to expressing themselves, which is too often denied.

In September 2006, Serge launches his first album “MOODS” under Kassure Productions, distributed by Interdisc.

In April 2008, Serge releases his second album “NEXT”. Pierre Messier is in charge of mixing and mastering the music at Studios Piccolo.

In 2010, He releases his next CD “MUST”. Pierre Messier again mixed the album at Studios Piccolo. Marc Thériault mastered this opus at Le Lab Mastering.
