Berlin School music of Sequentia Legenda
LATEST PRODUCTION: FIVE
EXCLUSIVE EDITION FOR THE FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF SEQUENTIA LEGENDA
Five years of presence on the Berlin School stage
On December 26, 2014, my music was brought to light with the first album BLUE DREAM. My dream had just come true: to share my own vision of the Berlin School with passion, sensitivity and authenticity. During these first five years of presence on the electronic music scene, the support and trust shown by the listeners, carried me throughout this musical adventure.
CODEX ON THE FLIGHT OF BIRDS
A TITLE IN MEMORY OF LEONARDO DA VINCI
I closed my eyes. I immersed myself in the atmosphere of the time.
I then felt this incessant need for research, this haunting loneliness and also these few more festive moments. Stone, wood, high ceilings, long corridors, footsteps, spiral stairs.
I then began to imagine the scientist in his workshop lit by candles and torches, where countless documents of all kinds were lit up. Notes, books, scattered over several long wooden tables, between scientific instruments and tin dishes. Papers, scrolls, they even had some on the ground. Little by little, the shades of my first sound painting seemed obvious, that of paying tribute to Leonardo da Vinci.

“Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel, a light, delicate, sky-blue sphere laced with slowly swirling veils of white, rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realize this is Earth … home.”

OVER THERE by Sequentia Legenda
OVER THERE - 1984
This project dates back to 1984, when I was 19 years old. We were at the time, at the end of the analog era and the MIDI standard had just been introduced. I had set up my studio in the basement at my parents' house and I dreamed of making an album.
OVER THERE - 2019
Thirty-five years later, I was lucky enough to be able to realize my dream.
To do this, I used today's instruments. The VSTs were carefully chosen to "stick" as closely as possible to the atmosphere of the classic Berlin school period from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s. I hope you will have as much pleasure listening to this album as I did composing it.
Available in dematerialized and physical versions.
RENAISSANCE by Sequentia Legenda
"THREE TITLES, THREE LANGUAGES, THREE SOUND UNIVERSES TO EXPLORE"
Sylvain Lupari: "Renaissance is a great opus where the French synthesist proposes 3 long musical rivers with a grandiose sonic decor.[...]
The French synthesist proposes here 3 long musical rivers with a grandiose sonic decor which goes beyond the boundaries of the conventional charms of the Berlin School EM style. The atmospheres are striking with the sound effects known of his repertoire and other very discreet effects of reverberations which constantly add emotional dimensions to evolutionary approaches that have totally surprised me as the subtleties in the structural changes arrive by good doses of emotions. It's the best album of Sequentia Legenda and sincerely I wonder how Laurent Schieber will come to surpass the dimensions of “Renaissance” one day[...].

TESTIMONY ABOUT MY MUSIC
I immediately entered your musical universe and you both carried me away, on the one hand by the energy you share with great generosity and on the other hand, by the finesse of the sounds you produce. The concert was of a high quality, both human and musical, you both have something contemplative and very aesthetic. In short, when the concert is over, we only want one thing: to keep it going for many hours. THANK YOU!

SEQUENTIA LEGENDA WITH SEQUENCERS
Sequencers have a very important role in my music. They can provide a strong basis to the piece or be more discreet to accompany quiet passages. Sequences can be variously rhythmic, melodic, syncopated. The transposition of those types will create changes of the tempo and the tone. This gives the sequencer several unique and new musical aspects.
