After the release of 2 critically-acclaimed EPs on the tastemaker imprint Black Butter Records and 2 albums on electronic label Armada Music, Pablo Nouvelle now looks to his solo release of his first ‘Piano Pieces’ collection on 8th February.
Drawing inspiration from one of the most streamed songs on his debut album – neoclassical piece AVE – and a trip to the Atlas mountains, Morocco, Nouvelle says “”The simplicity of composing pieces using only the piano has something honest to it. I wanted to draw a drastic contrast to this short-living world, drowning in hate and plastic. My journey to Zaouiat Ahansal – a hidden village in a remote valley in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and only accessible by foot or mule – inspired the idea of this plain tranquility.”
Nouvelle is an in-demand remixer and producer who has worked with the likes of Anne-Marie, Jessie Reyez, Bruno Major, Andreya Triana – stepping up for remix duties for Aurora, Gorgon City, Marina & the Diamonds to name a few.
When Nouvelle isn’t pursuing music, the versatile artist is an acclaimed film maker with 3 award-winning short films to his name. His latest is ‘In A Nutshell’ – a short animation that won the big prize at the Aspen Short Film Festival and was on the Oscar long list for animations.
From a seed to war, from meat to love, from indifference to apocalypse – ‘In A Nutshell’ is an attempt to capture the world in five minutes. The award winning short- lm was showcased at more than 100 film festivals all over the world and has been championed by Vimeo as their ‘Staff Pick’.
