Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bonjour was founded in 2012 by composer and bassist Florent Ghys. By combining low strings - basses cellos, and guitars - with drums, pitched percussion, melodica, and voices, Ghys was able to create music which flows effortlessly across genres, creating a unique sound that is “equal parts groove, melody and meditation.” This release is Bonjour’s self-titled debut. The work is performance-based, but is still compelling in nature. Jazz and new classical influences can be heard in these works, but with an edge that pushes the music toward adventure, edginess, and the slightly avant-garde. Ghys is joined by cellist Ashley Bathgate, guitarist James Moore, bassist Eleonore Oppenheim, and percussionist Owen Weaver. This release precedes a series Read more of New York City performances which will begin in September 2016. Read less
