EDWARD PERRAUD

A passion to play, in the mere sense of the word, a craving for music which leads to embrace all kinds of music, unbiased and unrestrained.
A self-taught formation in the beginning make him  discover chronologically rock, classical music, traditional and the «contemporary» music.
He studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Music in Paris from 1996 to 1999, with Michael Levinas in the class of Musical Analysis and with famous jazz drummer Daniel Humair.
Student at IRCAM from 1995 to 1996.
Jazz music deeply influences his way of playing drums, more and more pushing him to free improvisation, and experimentations on sounds.
A band which allows him to gather all the forces that lead him and let him discover improvisation: Shubniggurath, his first recording in 1990.
