About Émilie Simon
Émilie Simon born in Montpellier in 1978, is a French singer and composer of electronic music. Émilie Simon, the daughter of a sound engineer, grew up in Montpellier, France. She studied lyric singing at a Conservatoire for seven years before studying ancient music at the Sorbonne and later electronic music at the IRCAM; she tried her hand at jazz and rock until finally turning herself towards electronic music. She concluded her advanced studies, obtaining her DEA in contemporary music. Émilie Simon is a multidisciplinary artist; writing, composing and singing in all of her albums. She is also familiar with recording equipment, often adding her personal touch into arrangements and production. She programs and edits the sound effects in most of her songs. In May 2003, she released her debut album Émilie Simon. The electronic album was critically acclaimed and went on to become a commercial success. To promote her album, she did numerous live performances and TV appearances all over France. In 2004, she was rewarded with a Victoire de la musique in the 'Electronic Album' category for the album. Two music videos were made to promote Émilie Simon for the songs “Désert” and “Flowers”. The English version of “Désert” had an identical music video to the French version. Émilie Simon was also re-released in certain parts of the world with additional tracks. Despite having been released for over 3 years, the album was still charting in the French mid-price album charts in late January 2007. Wishing to orient her second album towards a more wintery or polar setting, she proceeded to record sounds which relate to coldness such as the sounds of smashing ice and footsteps in the snow. Right in the middle of her search for sounds for her new album, she was contacted by producer Luc Jacquet to compose the original soundtrack for his semi-documentary film, La Marche de l'empereur or March of the Penguins in English. The film which came out at the beginning of 2005 was based on the migration of penguins during their reproduction. Her project coinciding with the producers wishes, she composed the film’s musical soundtrack. In 2006, she won the Victoire de la musique in the “Film Soundtrack” category for La Marche de l'empereur. During the same year, she was nominated for a César for the best film music composition. However, her recordings weren’t used for the soundtrack to the American version of March of the Penguins. The American version had Alex Wurman composing the film score. In 2006, Émilie Simon released her third album, Végétal, in which she uses the sounds of plants; as hinted by the name. The lyrics play with words, always relating to flora. The album also contains more elements of rock music. This comes forward in some of the more lively tracks, such as “Fleur de saison”, where she plays an electric guitar. The sound remains nonetheless that of electronic music while her voice maintains its candor and softness. A music video has been aired for the first single “Fleur de saison”, the second one called “Dame de Lotus” has also been already aired. The album utilizes OpenDisc technology which enables access to special content such as songs and music videos on her official website. Végétal is her only album to have more than one cover image. Currently, three separate covers exist for the album. In late 2006, she released The Flower Book in the USA, a compilation album of her first three records, with some added material from her short international tour which included stops in New York and Los Angeles. She also used Myspace to convey messages to fans. Furthermore, “Désert” was released in vinyl in the US. The track “Rose hybride de thé”, originally from Végétal, will officially be the first single release intended for US audiences. On March 5th 2007, Émilie Simon released her first live album, titled À l’Olympia. The set exists as a sole CD or DVD, and contains live footage from a concert recorded on September 19, 2006. Songs from all of three of her albums are present in the recording. As an expected follow-up to Emilie Simon's debut U.S. release, The Flower Book comes the world-renowned CD, March of the Empress (La Marche De L'Empereur) . Written as the original score to the European version of March of the Penguins, Emilie's full recordings have never seen the light of day in the United States. The March of the Empress was released April 3, 2007.Follow on Bandsintown
