Accordion under influence & drums on acids.
A new project by François Castiello

Virage, I chose this name for the sound of my instrument but also for the content and meaning of my music. After years of exploring traditional music and imaginary folklore, I wanted to move on to other more contemporary horizons. By separating and amplifying the left and right keyboards of my accordion, I changed the classic acoustic sound using amplifiers and effects pedals.

Playing in duet with a drummer allows me to be alone on the melodic and harmonic field and to be able to exploit the spontaneity that arises in the trance of a concert. The drummer, Cyril Gilibert, with his experience in rock, punk music and jazz, brings exactly what I needed to make the blades of my accordion vibrate and push to the limit while leaving me a total freedom of improvisation.

After the long journey with Bratsch and a beautiful road already well marked out with Lalala Napoli,  the electric adventure with Virage opens up a new path for me.” François Castiello
