My Name is Claude


 

 

 

„Sein Name ist Claude. Er macht Musik. Und Kunst. Er ist nicht ganz von dieser Welt. Aber er erobert sie gerade”

"He makes music. (...) He's not completely of this world. But he's about to conquer it”

–Peter Richter, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

Dream Boat was a dream project. As a musician, to enter the deep and touching universe of director Tristan Ferland Milewski was to enter a world of consummate inspiration. Through this album I have unified everything I have ever done; piano, orchestra, electronic and techno are present here. All I know and all I love could be explored and utilised in the making of this soundtrack, forming a bridge between my past work to the two new works that immediately follow. The tracks are presented in chronological order as they occur in the film, allowing us to “see” the movie in our heads as we listen.

– Claude

YOU CANNOT ENTER THE DISCO

My new album is called “you cannot enter the disco”. It is an electronic/dance album that seems at first view very “pop”. But as I do in my art, my approach is very existentialistic, so this work is more complex than its form seems to be :-) "You Cannot Enter The Disco" is an album about the feeling of “not fitting” in the world. It is also an invitation to not try to fit but instead to turn towards community of people that are like you. The album tells a non-linear story of a form of enlightenment. From a song called “Down the Road”, which is about a place where a so-called lower part of society goes to sadly dance together, until the last title “Give Me The Eyes” which is about deep understanding of what is beneath the real concept of being. In between those 2 titles there is a whole journey.

– Claude

CAN'T CHEAT EP

 

Can't Cheat is a live studio recording EP. Each track has been recorded in a single take, based on an improvisation with pre-prepared material.

Strongly influenced by dub culture, its soft and rhythmic vocals deliver, together with wide airy sounds, a poetic point of view on different intimate feelings.


Can’t Cheat EP will be released on 12. Jan on Bandcamp and 19. Jan on iTunes.

Dream Boat


a 90 minute documentary by acclaimed director Tristan Ferland Milewski with original score composed, performed and produced by My Name is Claude. Nominated for Best Music prize at Munich's DOK.fest. In cinemas now.

UPCOMING SCREENINGS

One week on a cruise ship, with parties, fun and new friendships. The all-gay clientele on board are preoccupied with topics such as identity, the body beautiful and the search for sex.

Every evening is dedicated to a new theme, challenging the passengers to ever more extravagant, body-hugging outfits. In the cabins however, the talk is more than skin deep as the men open up about their private lives.

Marek, a young Polish man just wants to be accepted and loved as a human being and not just because of his taut body. Dipankar from India has just recently come out; he and Palestinian Ramzi are revelling in the kind of freedom they can only dream about in their homophobic societies back home. Martin is HIV positive and ponders hedonistic ways, while Philippe from France observes the proceedings on board serenely from his wheelchair.

In his feature film debut director Tristan Ferland Milewski succeeds in providing a look behind the scenes of an ostensibly superficial world. His humorous approach helps him create a genuine bond with the protagonists who talk openly about gay desires, free love and good old-fashioned monogamy.

"With 'Science of Doubt' I tried to decompose rhythm and work on my music outside of any form of ''beat regulation''. With my latest songs, I re-integrate music pulsation and make research on beat. I try to use percussions in the most atemporal way possible an avoid ''electronic and techno'' clichés - even though I love these genres on a personal level!"

– Claude Ferland Milewski

DISCOGRAPHY


DISCOGRAPHY


You Cannot Enter The Disco Written, recorded and produced in summer of 2017, You Cannot Enter The Disco is an electronic dance album with a synth pop music feel. Following My Name is Claude’s signature existential approach to both life and music, the work is more complex than its form initially suggests.  “You Cannot Enter The Disco is an album about the feeling of “not fitting” in the world. It is also an invitation to not try to fit but instead to turn towards a community of people that are like you."  – Claude Ferland Milewski The album, which is digitally presented as an A and B side, as in traditional vinyl production, tells a non-linear story of a form of “enlightenment.” It opens with “Down the Road,” a song about a place where a so-called “lower” part of society goes to sadly dance together, and closes with “Give Me the Eyes,” about deep understanding of what lies beneath the real concept of being.  With compelling beats, upbeat synthesizer and clear, joyous vocals, You Cannot Enter The Disco invites you to the dance floor for a journey of self discovery and understanding.  MNIC has also especially woven together the tracks of each of the A- and B-Sides of You Cannot Enter The Disco, and these two mixes are available as bonus tracks on all Bandcamp album sales, and will be streaming on Soundcloud from the 19th. Release: January 19, 2018 Composition, vocals, recording and production: My Name is Claude Mastering: Matthieu Petitmangin Original cover art designed by Claude Ferland Milewski
