Igorrr is a solo French composer whose real name is Gautier Serre, known for his insane fusion between electronic acoustic science and classical music (especially the baroque era) also introducing a sprinkle of metal distortion and some electronica / breakcore … media labeled as Baroquecore.
He started his musical career in 2004 with a simple demo that wasn’t satisfying for his trip with musical experimentation so he released his 1st full length album in 2006 entitled Poisson Soluble (self-produced) with 8 tracks metal / classical influenced. The astonishing blast beats are noticeable while the melody is clearly a new wave of baroque classical music along weird sound effects.
After Poisson Soluble, a new album had to see the light in 2008: Moisissure, which was also self-produced, with a new musical vision and improved quality and skills; more piano work and some opera voice over. Due to some success, Acroplane Records adopted Moisissure and re-recorded it in 2009. Here is a track from the album that really shows the death metal influence in his work.
Igorrr started 2010 with a new release by Impulsive Art (a double vinyl edition of Poisson Soluble and Moisissure), but he didn’t let 2010 go by without a new release, so a new album entitled Nostril was released with Ad Noiseam (an electronic music label) with 14 tracks of non stop fusion, sound effects and creativity. In my opinion this is where he reached the peak and the perfect formula that represented his various influences.
A high standard work for all classical music fans and baroque music lovers, in some new wave electronic version, metal oriented drumming and percussion. Here are 2 of my favorite tracks in the album but I recommend listening to the whole album for better judgment just because the tracks are so widely varied.
It’s also important to mention that Gautier is the founder of the Grindcore/Death metal/Breakcore band Whourkr.
