In addition to this Ricky Kej has also composed music for the Indian Film 'Accident' to rave reviews and commercial succes. myspace: www.myspace.com/rickykej or email email@example.com or just post in the 'shoutbox' on this page. 2. KEJ was born in 1997 at the annual Festival de Cornouailles, Quimper, Brittany. Its theme-instrument that year was the flute, organised by the incomparable Breton flutist Jean-Michel VEILLON.
He invited Jean-Luc THOMAS and Pierrick TARDIVEL, then a duo. They received an overwhelming ovation for their work and success was immediate. KEJ shortly afterwards became a trio with the arrival of guitarist Philippe GLOAGUEN. Their music goes straight to the soul. It is an atmospheric blend of traditional Breton, jazz and highly-contemporary music, emerging and reemerging like floating clouds in a wide, blue sky. They create a poetic balance between melody and atmosphere, in which sounds and silences, like those of the sea, are inseparably connected, but alive in themselves.
Improvisation plays an essential part. The result is rich yet restrained, avant-garde yet traditional. Their desire to "sculpt the music" to enhance the sense of hearing is always there. Read more on Last.fm.
