Awenson biography
JoŽl BERNARD (Awenson) is a french electronic researcher and keyboardist. He can be considered as the great successor of french 70s proggy kosmische wizards (Bernard Xolotl, Zanov, Didier Bocquet). His first album published in 2010 on Dreaming reveals astonishing, luminous dreamscapes based on floating synthesized waves and circular electronic arpeggios, reminiscence to the Berlin school of electronics and notorious figures such as Klaus Schulze , Edgar Froese and Michael Hoenig.

Tellurian, spaced out musical impressionism in an original peculiar way.

4 stars French composer and keyboardist Joel Bernard has been an actively producing solo artist since 2005, initially opting for Awen as his creative alias, but from 2007 and onwards AWENSON has been his chosen artist moniker. He has produced four full-length albums so far, and "Wizard" is the latest of these. He was signed up to Musea Records for this album, which was issued on their Dreaming imprint in the first half of 2010.

While Awenson's take on the field of prog-tinged electronic music may be a bit neither fowl nor fish for some, those who are accustomed to and generally enjoy artists in this genre to explore material with a broad expressive sonic palette should find plenty to enjoy here. Fans of Tangerine Dream in particular should note down this artist and album straight away, and those who listen to Jarre on regular occasions and wouldn't mind seeking out material of a more adventurous nature that contains familiar-sounding elements should also take note of this production ? as well as anyone else who might find this description interesting, obviously.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
