About Modular California Vibes
Written in a different breathtaking outdoors site every day, this release is the true travelog of a week-long creative journey solely powered by Californian sunshine. Producers Joachim Garraud, Hugo Paris, Trovarsi, and Franck Martin joined forces on board the unique LAGoodvibe tour bus / mobile studio to compose four 100% solar powered songs, under the close watch of a camera crew. Electronic music, and performing it, is often associated with large energy consumption by the equipment and infrastructure it requires. The project proposes a more sustainable / perennial approach. Experience daily life on the bus: hangs, writing sessions. creative struggles, buggy rides and breathtaking views via the documentary that will be toured starting late 2022.
