The Disc

The disc

It is extremely rare to see, nowadays, many international rasta artists and different musicians gathering for « an album with painting as a background ».

***

Audio Principles:
A southern French backing band- loved by Fluoman- are recording instrumentations to propose to the international reggae artists to sing their words on these compositions as a tribute to Fluoman.

For each music, there will be two texts: one in English written by Jamaican and African artists, and a French one written by Fabien, ex singer of the band Militan Band ( followed and adviced by Fluoman for the artisitic choices).

The musical part is entirely supervised by Fluoman’s son, Elijah.
Instrumental sessions are recorded in southern France where the painter liked to attend to sound recording and mixing sessions.

Musicians are gathered under the name of Fluo System for this event and produce a pure 70s Jamaican roots raggae. Strong basse-drums, bewitching riddims, original percussions and punchy brass are the basic elements proposed to the singers.

The English versions, which are introductions to the coming CD methodology of production, were recorded in artists’ backstages, hotel rooms etc.
To achieve these recordings Arc En Fluo and Version Fluo move with a mobile digital recording studio and everything needed.
This measure is close to Fluoman’s who would move with his painting suitcase to create new works.

The passion of African and Jamaican artists is spontaneous and touching. Fluoman, invited in Jamaica by Bob Marley himself, got the gratitude of Jamaican artists for 30 years.
The pre-production is in progress and already has the following artists, who have composed original melodies and texts:Their compositions are new and subtly -and legally- inserted in the first « Fluo System » instrumentations.

Finally, the arts of the CD cover and booklet will be realised from Fluoman’s paintings, like Fluoman’s works on Burning Spear, Culture, Steel Pulse, Yabby You or Tonton David CDs’ covers.
