Finnegans Wake


There is more than one artist with this name 1. Great Beligian Avant/RIO Chamber Band in tradition of Aksak Maboul , Univers Zero, Louise Avenue and Julverne. The band started in 1993 with my meeting with Alain Lemaître. He had just started a studio in his basement and we decided to give it a try... Then, as things were improving, I called my old friend Jean-Louis Aucremanne, with which I had played jazz duets in the 80s. We shared the same prog references (Canterbury, HENRY COW, VDGG) and there was the opportunity to start a "prog band". Read more on Last.fm

Then, as things were improving, I called my old friend Jean-Louis Aucremanne, with which I had played jazz duets in the 80s.

We shared the same prog references (Canterbury, HENRY COW, VDGG) and there was the opportunity to start a "prog band"... Richard Redcrossed came later as we needed a lyricist and afterwards a vocalist. Here are the bios of the founding members: 1. Jean-Louis Aucremanne is a pianist, rather jazz / contempory music oriented.

He studied jazz harmony in various jazz clinics in Belgium. FINNEGANS WAKE is the only band he's been member of. His references are Martial Solal, Siegfried Kessler and Bill Evans. 2. Alain Lemaître played bass in various funk and "chanson française" bands in Belgium.

When FW started, he had never listened to any progressive band and didn't know anything about the existence of such a music. His prime reference is Jaco Pastorius. 3. Richard Redcrossed sang in various new wave bands in the beginning of the 80s. He was quite influenced by The STRANGLERS and has also a crooner touch that he's devolving in new projects in Belgium, under the name Richard Belgium.

As a lyricist, he developed a kind of twisted surrealistic approach that can be found in the "Wenceslas" pieces. 4. Henry Krutzen studied percussion, saxophone and harmony in various schools and jazz clinics in Belgium. He also plays harmonica, recorder, piano, keyboards and some ethnic instruments (reita, balafon, ken...). He took part of many musical projects: jazz, new wave, heavy metal, experimental, world music and progressive Rock.

Since 1993, he is working on three different projects: a) FINNEGANS WAKE is a progressive rock band whose main influences go from CARAVAN, UNIVERS ZERO» and HENRY COW to today bands such as U TOTEM or UZ JSME DOMA. There are four members in the band: Richard Redcrossed (lyrics, vocals), Jean-Louis Aucremanne (piano and keyboards), Alain Lemaître (bass and keyboards) and Henry Krutzen (vocals, piano, keyboards, saxophone, recorder, ken and shanai). In 2003, Alexandre Moura-Barros (guitars) joined the band as Jean-Louis Aucremanne left. So now it is a Belgo-Brazilian band! b) Under the name Henry Krutzen comes more intimate and personal stuff: piano pieces, songs, «new music» or experimental material. c) "Xeno" is a prog / electronic music project. 5.

Alexandre Moura-Barros moved to join the band in 2003 as Jean-Louis left because of Henry Krutzen's moving to Brazil. He's from Brazil and studied composition, harmony, music history and acoustic guitar (violin) at the School of Music of the University of Uberlandia in Brazil. He plays acoustic and electric guitars as well as bass. His main references are KING CRIMSON, Brazilian erudite and popular music and contemporary classical music.

Henry Krutzen met him in Natal (Brazil) where the band is now based. So now the composition work is shared between Alexandre Moura-Barros and Henry Krutzen.
