As with every sound, thunder carries a complex emotion. It is fierce and heavy, scary and mysterious at the same time. Its corresponding image, splitting dark skies with a blinding flash of the lighting, completes a picture which is equally frightening and fascinating.
For Bartek and Camille, the concept of ThunderFuzz is deeply rooted in these emotions. Even though they come from different environments, they share similar fascination with dark electronic sounds. She, French, originates from classical musical upbringing, having started piano lessons at the age of 7. He, Polish/Luxembourgish, returned to music after running away from a corporate life and a career of a business analyst. The place where they met for the first time, Luxembourg City, couldn’t have been more random and unexpected. Yet it began a passionate conversation about music, which resulted in a collaboration and then a full album.
The discovery process which led to their debut album combined two worlds whose similarities might only be surprising at the first glance. Camille graduated with a master in musicology and a degree in sound design and music composition for the image. Bartek studied music production and sound engineering at the Abbey Road Institute in Amsterdam. However, this distance, not only in the geographical sense of this word, couldn’t have been more of an illusion. The real passion for music knows no barriers or limitations, it is a language in its own right, a way to convey pure emotions.
