Étienne Jaumet and Sonic Boom are true wizards on analog synths. Singer Céline Wadier specializes in Dhrupad, the oldest form of classical Indian music and one of Young’s greatest sources of inspiration. Sound artist Étienne Jaumet (1970) plays synth in the duo Zombie Zombie and is a saxophonist in the live band of producer James Holden.
Sonic Boom (pseudonym of the Brit Peter Kember, 1965) has a long track record in the alternative and electronic music scene. The Dhrupad style in which Céline Wadier sings is, just like the music of La Monte Young, characterized by the use of drones as the basis for improvisation. In 2016, the trio had great success with a tribute to La Monte Young in a performance at the Philharmonie de Paris.
