Michel Montecrossa is one of today's most prolific songwriter and orchestral composer. He created more than 2200 songs and instrumentals playing a wide variety of musical styles ranging from cyberrock dance-drive, slam poetry topical songs and futuristic cybersymphonies in concerts and recordings you won't forget... "Song-music and instrumental-music", says Michel Montecrossa, "both have the same origin in the highest creative consciousness. They are two ways for expressing the joy, the energy, the tenderness and the happy feeling of life coming through consciousness expanding experience.
Song-music and instrumental-music in their cyber-modern as well as in their classical-modern forms are therefore a harmoniously self-fullfilling completeness in my artistic work. My concerts are the live presentation of this creative unity, in a future oriented way bringing together song- and instrumental music." To the journalist Diana Oslow he said in an interview about his life and music: "I grew up in an environment of freedom and creative encouragement. My father played violin in Memphis, my mother was singing in a choir in Vienna. They met in Paris, and when I was born they joined a travelin' artists group doin' all kinds of performances in the States and on the way from France up to India and back: acting, happenings, music - all kinds of shows.
As a child I was fascinated by electronical experimental soundstructures which were used by the group for dance and lightshows. I was about five when I created an electronical soundimage for an art-happening. As a teenager I made films and played guitar. Many ideas from that time grew into songs afterwards.Make Michel Montecrossa Playlist
