Cathal Coughlan

A majestic buiding (Un édifice majestueux)

1 hr / Published

VIPop # 26

Whether he shared the creative process with Sean O'Hagan in the cult band Microdisney, or then as a solo artist, under his own name or that of Fatima Mansions, few artists have managed to install such a powerful and personal musical universe while exploring such different musical styles ... Being alternately "pop" and a few moments later almost "borderline", he always made us understand better what can be the complexity and the talent of a real artist ... And this ability to be able to cover a vast spectrum of the emotional field allows him to excel in collaborations, such as the project The North Sea Scrolls (with Luke Haines and Andrew Mueller) or the Operas of François Ribac and Eva Schwabe ... Rare and Indispensable

Que ce soit lorsqu'il partageait le processus créatif avec Sean O'Hagan dans le groupe culte Microdisney, ou ensuite en solo, sous son nom ou celui de Fatima Mansions, peu d'artistes ont réussi à installer un univers musical aussi puissant et personnel tout en explorant des styles musicaux si différents ... Pouvant être alternativement "pop" puis quelques instants plus tard presque "borderline", il nous a toujours mieux fait comprendre ce que peut être la complexité et le talent d'un véritable artiste ... Et cette capacité à pouvoir parcourir un vaste spectre du champ émotionnel lui permet d'exceller dans des collaborations, tels le projet The North Sea Scrolls (avec Luke Haines et Andrew Mueller) ou les Opéras de François Ribac et Eva Schwabe ... Rare et Indispensable
