Happiness and suffering are intimately linked up forever. This is how he began: Leitmøtiv is a French (from Nancy) one-man band that plays principally melanchonic instrumental pieces, full of sadness and pain, but opened to the light at the same time. Leitmøtiv is a Frédéric Truong musical project, born in 1991 that sees sometimes collaborations with other musicians to perform Truong's wonderful melodies. The music of Leitmøtiv is inspired by various themes, as the notes of Suspended Moment retrospective suggest. Through the past full-length albums in fact it's possible see inspiration by cinema, emotions, feelings, war and racism refuse. The last and wonderful surprise from this artist comes from the birth of her daughter Sophie that became his muse. The most of Leitmøtiv works were released by own label, Karismatik, that now is dead. So it was very difficult to find these underground works, but now they are distribuited by FTR, the new label of the artist. This page reached the status of "official site" thanks to Frédéric's generosity, who believed in this work from the beginning. During 2002, Frédéric Truong finally decided to close Leitmøtiv project. So after the last masterpiece album Parc Sainte-Marie, he began to release records under its own name. Read more on Last.fm.
