Trisomie 21

Trisomie 21

Profile:
T21 are Philippe and Hervé Lomprez, two brothers from Abscon, in the North of France, near Lille (200 km from Paris). Though some people think of their music to be gothic, industrial, electro-pop, ambient, '80s, or like New Order or Joy Division, their music cannot really fit into just one category. Their music consists of lush soundscapes which fuel the imagination into dreaming movie-like images and scenes.

The name, pronounced tree-zho-mee vahnt-ay-un, derives from Trisomy 21, the medical term for the extra chromosome resulting in Down Syndrome.

Judging by one of their pictures shown on Discogs, its easy to think that T21 (duo of Philippe and Herve Lomprez) are yet another cheesy new-wave act from the 80's. Their records, however, tell entirely different story - while they're not totally devoid of pop elements, there are many experimental pieces many of which still sound fresh, in my opinion. From what i can understand, Trisomie 21 just recently started to get attention outside of their native France and its about time, since they reformed after a long hiatus and recorded an entirely new album called "Happy Mystery Child" which may or may not tone down ambient/experimental influences in their sound.
