Since 1995 Saphi has been behind the project Nocturne. Its first concerns for the music creation and conceptualization have been: Collective memory, guilt, as well as the notion of choice and free will. Those questions and preoccupations have also been raised by the association on Artschock of which Nocturne represents the sonic image.
2003 Has been a decisive year for Nocturne with the construction of Doctor Mabuse, a short story that was written in the twenties by Norbert Jacques and adapted as a movie by Fritz Lang. A musical illustration of this film is set out with a project untitled "Terrorize- Manipulate- Convince", released as an album in 2006 by the label Old Europa Cafe. The reflection goes on and the new way heralds then some works which are to be more peculiar and intimate.
The end of 2005 marks another a great encounter, with Ccile. As a musician with a classical background, she is invited to play, and then to join the project Nocturne. The acoustic dimension (violin-trumpet) brings another kind of profundity to Nocturne. On stage, they form a disconcerting pair, secured in their vocation for Artshock.
A concert by Nocturne is at once made of mystery, schemes, and secret. An impression of underlying hesitation and uncertainty gradually arises. As the music begins the veil lifts progressively, the sonic elements come to form, discretely drawing an atmosphere before the wholeness suddenly appears and reveals a skilful music display. Various emotions travel down the surprised audience. The arpeggios, notes and rhythmic combinations grant strange ways for the compositions. The texts are tempered chronicles, frames of mind and inner ways which are delivered uncompromisingly. Those numerous synths and hom-made machines make of those installations a curiosity that contributes to the show.
This is a Total happening experience. Like Mabuse is the man behind the curtain, Saphi is the man behind his machines. He slowly gets off them and the transfer is proceeding before our eyes. He's deeply and personally involved, his attitudes evolve and his expressions change and alter contributing a genuine performance.
Nocturne set casts on the audience a powerful analogic alchemy, putting the audience into what Saphi calls Brutal Disko Music. A concert by Nocturne is a real show. Numerous performances in France and abroad has been considered in this regard.
The project Nocturne is currently developed at the Atelier de Cration Exprimentale.
