Mr Nô has been raised in an area in France well known for being full of volcanos which are thousands of years ago. And if you google it, you will find that erupting volcanos can pose many hazards, and not only in the immediate vicinity of the eruption. It is an opening, or rupture, in a planet’s surface which allows hot magma to escape from below the surface.
Somehow similar to Mr Nô’s power when it comes to create thumping beats. ok but then what about the Nô?
Derived from the Sino-Japanese word for “skill” or “talent”, Nô (or Noh) theater is a major form of classical Japanese musical drama that has been performed since the 14th century. Many characters are masked, with men playing male and female roles.
Bringing these 2 worlds into electronic music was probably a risk but when Mr Nô started producing music for his debut EP (Snake EP) in 2011 with these influences in mind, it didn’t take long time to get noticed by opinion leader magazines such as Tsugi or Les Inrocks in France and convinced BBC Radio one DJ Rob Da Bank to open one of his show with The Snake. Not only Mr Nô music reminds you of why you fell in love with the bright lights of techno/electro but also proves that electronic music is emotion through your body and your eyes.
With the help of long time partner Florian CARDINALE (aka DVP) he quickly developed a live show that convinced a lot of festivals and booking agency ITB that Mr Nô is a new talent to keep an eye on.
