Mimetic

Geneva, Switzerland Breaks Techno Electronica Dubstep +1

Musically involved in techno and atmospheric sounds, Mimetic is the reflection of Jérome Soudan’s mind, complex and fascinating. This is a hyperactive musician, often described as an essential piece of the european underground music scene. He first studied piano at conservatory level, leading him to explore and become interested in clarinet, orchestral percussion, drumming and later electronic drumming. Once he finished his musical diploma. Jérôme who was living in Lyon moved to Paris and joined Les Tétines Noires. He soon became involved in another project: Von Magnet where he quickly established himself within the band, due to his drumming talent, as well as his natural skills as a composer. At the same time, in 1998, Jérome played and wrote in Art Zoyd, and his own musical project was born: Mimetic.

His first album as Mimetic named ‘Overrated’, received good reviews from the electronic music movement. Far from being stuck on one idea or genre, Mimetic writes for comtemporary dance artists (Carol Brown, Jan Linkens, Lionel Hoche), creates the soundtracks of underground movies (Lech Kowalski...). Specific work that he is still involved in currently, the most recent project being the soundtrack to Jenna Hasse’s upcoming movie. He is also collaborating with Sigmasix on a audiovisual installation experiencing the sound in octophony: Vertical Surround.
So far, Mimetic has released 9 albums, many various digipacks, DVDs and also a book. His last album “Where We Will Never Go”, includes collaborations with Mika Vainio, Mira Calix, Niveau Zero and Samael.

As this artist can never sit still for long, his next album is scheduled for release in 2016.
Not only a successful producer and live artist, Mimetic is a brillant DJ, mixing with ease different styles such as bass music, techno and electronica. Behind his machines, he knows how to handle the crowds and to make them move. After 17 years of touring, expressing and improving his art, Mimetic is still following his path, fed by multicultural influences.
