APNEA is a deep electronic music label.

Deep electronic music, from ambient techno to dub techno, from deep techno to deep electronica.

01. Who are you ?
That’s a difficult question !
Let’s say, I’m Tanguy from Brittany in France but currently living in Kathmandu-Nepal.
In the electronic music for years, co-founder member of Seventh-Sky organisation which promoted parties in the 2000′.
Now producing Ambient music and DeepTechno.
I’m married to a nepali girl and father of a little princess.
I like travels, discovering cultures because I read Tintin.
I’m writer, composer, film maker and crêpe maker !

02. What are you listening actually ?
I grew up between Pink Floyd on my mom’s side and Charlie Parker on my dad’s side. Then my friends brought Rage Against The Machine.
That was a good mix! I understood that there was a music for every moment of the day.
So i listen « In Rainbows of Radiohead » when I want to play with some nostalgic feelings, « Tool » when I need to recharge my power, Denez Prigent and Loreena Mc Kennitt when I need voices of the Ocean, The Doors when I’m waiting for the sun and Batman soundtrack of Hans Zimmer to do gym, which is definitly better than any Workout playlist!
Of course lots of Ambient and Deep Techno when I drive, walk, eat, sleep.

3. How you came to music ?
Well, as I said my family is composed of music lovers but not musicians. When I was young my father took me to the conservatory. As all teachers told me to play piano, I choosed Violin. It took me 7 years to admit my vibrato was not on point. I got anyway some basic knowledge at piano and guitar.
Music has always been present in my life, always been a good friend and i can say every step has its own soundtrack.
One day I was regreting that I never passed the step of Electronic Composition. My friend VØSNE told me « It’s never too late! ». Few weeks after I started !

4. What gear do you use in studio/live ?
Prophet is the matrix of everything.
Hope it doesn’t sound to much religious or sectarian!

5. Do you have an anecdote or a memory to tell us about your music ?
Last summer I had a walk next to Ocean with my daughter. At that moment I had not so much inspiration in the studio.
My daughter was jumping in the puddles, again and again. I heard the melody of this.. Once in the studio it came very fast, it made the track « Walk of Loeiza ».
I loved that feeling to be able to transpose an emotion, an action or whatever into music.

6. Which artist would you dream of working with?
I think I’d like to sit and just look Syd Barrett working.

7. What are your plans for the future?
I hope to stay human as the world changes real fast.
Be a good son, good brother, good, husband and good father.
And continue to compose, to write, to photograph ! I hope to do some soundtrack someday, that would be a really interesting work to illustrate pictures.
I wish to continue discovering the Himalaya and always come back to the Ocean when I can !
