Bonjour à tous,
I am Boris Lelong, 38, and I live in Saint Denis, France.
I work for Altamira
, a sociocultural project focusing on music as a tool of social development. Basically, I record/publish music and organize cultural gatherings with various communities in Asia, Africa and in my hometown - but it's much more than that... http://www.altamiraworld.net
I discovered electronic music in the mid-80s, with Vangelis and JM Jarre and then Klaus Schulze, and became deeply involved in the late 80s when I came across the works of Steve Roach (Dreamtime Return, Quiet Music, Desert Solitaire...)
and Brian Eno (Apollo, Music For Airports, Thursday Afternoon...)
I had my first synthesizer at the age of 13 (that was 1984) and made my first ambient albums in 1990/91 (on cassettes for friends) but produced very little during the rest of the 90s. I have been composing again in the present decade, notably completing two (unreleased) albums of which I am quite proud. Besides electronics, I play all sorts of acoustic instruments from all over the world.http://www.myspace.com/borislelong
I joined the Hypnos
forum a few years ago but never really took the time to contribute (I am such a slow writer !), though I composed a mini-album as a "joining gift" and made it available to all ambient fans on the Hypnos forum (and elsewhere...)For those who missed it, it's called Hypnostasis, and you can find it here as a free download :http://www.borislelong.com/hypnostasis
Many thanks to the team who manages this forum, it's great to have a place like this ! I visit once in a while to check the news and debates, and it's a pleasure...
