With his best known project, Zombie Zombie
, on hiatus, Parisian musician Etienne Jaumet has developed solo productions enlisting Emmanuelle Parrenin (harp, vocals) and Carl Craig (mixing). Jaumet plays drum machines, vintage synths, and saxophone (which he’s played in various indie bands: The Married Monk and Flóp among others) cultivating a sound described as Tangerine Dream, Reich and Goblin influenced.
Jaumet is one half of the French duo, Zombie Zombie, the other being drummer Herman Dune. Zombie Zombie are known for improvisational-horror-electronic music, best expounded on their A Land for Renegades
album, (Versatile Records 2008). At the suggestion of Versatile boss, Gilbert, Jaumet composed his first solo track: the 15 minute 'Repeat Again After Me' (remixed by Ame), the EP Entropy
(Versatile 2009), and finally the long-player Night Music
On Night Music,
produced by Carl Craig, a French music legend appeared: the singer and harpist Emmanuelle Parrenin contributed her harp to Etienne’s sounds – she plays the stellar notes that conclude 'For Falling Asleep' – and 'she voice' on the synthesised sounds.
Aside from Zombie Zombie, Jaumet has been a part of a number of other groups: The Married Monk indie-folk, Flóp – a duo with Jérôme Lorichon, The Small Addiction Factory (indie, electronic, folk), Toog, Wilfried, and le Son du Mois.
