about

„Everything starts with the words: I am - je suis!“

Henning Schmiedt and Marie Séférian, French / German singer of Lebanese descent, team up for a carefully woven, yet fresh and spontaneous collaboration.

Meeting in Henning’s studio Klavierraum in the melting pot Berlin they create this charming post chanson album with a slow music attitude.
Consisting of only first take recordings, it masterfully combines piano, toy piano, harmonium, vocals and electronic textures, resulting in a minimalistic and yet rich and fluid union of sound.
Lyrics are flung into the air like glittering confetti, combining eclectic elements from chanson, Indian vocal scats und jazz with the warmth of the piano and the breathing of the harmonium. The result is a stunning and organic musical interplay.

“Je suis” - I am - everything begins here.

On Je suis maison Marie plays a music box that quotes a piece of Henning’s earlier work, nach hause from his release Spazieren, as though to answer and to close the thought’s circle: “I am, I’ve come home.”
