GENEVIÉVE PASQUIER (D)
Being a member of the legendary German industrial project Thorofon, Geneviéve Pasquier released her first solo album in 2003. This record, Virgin Thoughts caused enthusiastic reactions by both listeners and reviewers. People praised her mix of electronic/post-industrial music and 80s-minimal-electro with a frigid but soulful voice. Geneviéve Pasquier´s very specific sound developed continually and soon lead to her signing on Ant-Zen. These even tempered tracks attracted a German and international fan base. The following Ant-Zen releases, Soap Bubble Factory and Virgin Pulses, as well as her famous live performances have made her one of the most well-known female noise and industrial artists in the underground. In 2009 artist returned with Le Cabaret Moi.
Initially she made noise influnced industrial and soundscapes and later on she moved more towards minimal electro. Her music is perhaps not easy to digest for some, yet anyone will surely find it fascinating. The voice of Geneviève Pasquier crawls under your skin and together with the confronting electronics it is an important part of the overall sound that is being created. It is the perfect fusion between German-electro-industrial and pop sensibility.
