„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

Next from My Name is Claude, a return to the dance floor with a new full-length album about love, understanding, and community.

Preview on Soundcloud

A synth pop album reuniting the existentialist themes of Science of Doubt with the disco fervour of Lovelovelove (early work of My Name is Claude), YOU CANNOT ENTER THE DISCO explores what that phrase means to My Name is Claude; an invitation to fight for the right tragedy in your life, to turn yourself towards community. That building a community is the answer. Enjoy some snippets below, and look out for more news about release dates and formats.

Coming soon…

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

Science of Doubt

"…a mélange of classical, baroque music and melancholic pop, which pulls one in a spell, in a vortex of dark desire." SEEANCE MAGAZIN

Science of Doubt is 14 track album by My Name Is Claude. This is the first physical release of Science of Doubt. 1000 copies have been made for this limited edition. The cd sleeve is printed on paper and stitched together, using low environmental impact products and techniques. 

Science of Doubt is a non stop music flowing one song into the other, a journey into romanticism, existentialism and poetry. For this release My Name is Claude worked arrangements including piano, classic double bass, harp and analogue synths. Orchestral moments meet cold electronics and silence. 

Original cover art designed by Sofia Madafi, styling by Mads Dinesen and photograph by Mali Lazell.
