French artist Cécile Schott aka Colleen is fearless in her willingness to explore new sounds and new ways of creating music as a solo performer.
Over the course of seven critically acclaimed albums released between 2003 and 2021, Colleen consistently reinvented herself, first by taking acoustic instruments out of their usual context and pushing the boundaries of their playability, then through avant-pop electronic explorations.
With compositions ranging from the mysterious and contemplative to kinetic and playful, the Thrill Jockey recording artist has given more than 230 concerts across Europe, the US, Japan, Brazil and Singapore.
Colleen’s growing passion for synthesis, bolstered by her collaborations with synth manufacturer Moog, have led to her 8th album Le jour et la nuit du réel, to be released on Thrill Jockey on 22.9.23. Le jour et la nuit du réel (“The day and the night of reality” in French) is an album of parallels and contrasts.
Schott’s first purely instrumental work since 2007’s Les ondes silencieuses, and her first double album, Le jour et la nuit du réel started as an album of songs with lyrics in the style of her previous album The Tunnel and the Clearing before gradually morphing into wordless suites of compositions divided into movements.
