Julien Marchal studied jazz and modern music at the Conservatoire of Bordeaux. At the same time he graduated from the University of Musicology where he discovered minimalism while listening to composers like Pärt, Glass and Gorecki. Fascinated by minimalism and contemporary music, he nevertheless explores the vast world of electronic music and came to Aphex Twin, Burial, Müm, Jon Hopkins but especially Boards of Canada. He started composing at university but it was not until some years afterwards that he found an audience. He recorded his first solo EP Insight in 2014. This four little piano pieces drew attention and ears of several artists including Robot Koch (Musician Award Winning & Electronic Producer) with which he created together two pieces appeared on the label Monkey Town Records. One of the two, "Care", was used in the American TV series How To Get Away With Murderer (ABC). Always a tireless discovery process, Julien landmark Philippe Lamy, a Teacher in Fine Arts at the Architectural University of Toulouse in France and artist of many resources (musician, painter, draftsman). From this encounter is born the project "Piano Augmenté" or the delicacy and subtlety are orchestrated at the heart of piano and electroacoustics.
