Samuel Reinard compose et produit de la musique électronique sous le pseudonyme Ryvage. Décrit comme cinématographique, son univers musical s’inspire de la musique de films de science-fiction des années 80’ et de musique industrielle et ambiante, le tout agrémenté par des réminiscences de littérature française. Depuis 2017, il a enchaîné les apparitions dans le cadre de festivals au Luxembourg et à l’étranger et a joué en première partie d’artistes comme Rone (FR), Arnaud Rebotini (FR), Blanck Mass (UK). En 2018, il a réalisé la bande-son officielle du Luxembourg City Film Festival et un rework du titre 'Bubbles' de Pascal Schumacher. Un premier EP 5 titres 'Tides' accompagné par une 2 clips est sorti en juillet 2019. En 2020 il compose la musique pour la création théâtrale 'La Vieille qui Marchait dans la Mer' au TNL et signe la bande-son de la série 'Ausbroch', diffusée à la Radio 100,7. La même année il compose et produit le titre 'Tulipe', accompagné par une vidéo réalisée par Ted Kayumba avec Jill Crovisier et diffusée lors de plusieurs festivals indépendants.

Description

For more than 100 years, the steel industry has been part of the visual and acoustic landscape of the town of Esch-Alzette and the Luxembourg and Lorraine mining basin. Noise pollution for some, the soundtrack of a part of their lives for others, the song of the machines, composed of the whistling and lamentations of the overhead cranes and the roar of the metal devices in operation, fills the night with its melancholic presence, sometimes threatening and always subtle. The Nightsongs project takes this nocturnal soundscape as the starting point and raw material for a series of electronic compositions devoted to the subject of night and the region's steel history. Using field-recording and electronic production techniques, the recorded sounds of the steel industry become constituent parts of musical and sound works that invite the listener on a temporal journey that explores the different facets and activities of the night and their connection to the Esch region. The musical compositions, produced by electronic musician Samuel Reinard (Ryvage) or in collaboration with Luxembourgish (Them Lights, Pol Belardi, Pascal Schumacher...) and European musicians and composers, will be broadcast as part of a geo-located nocturnal sound trail via a mobile app in Belval, an immersive sound installation at the Bridderhaus and a live concert at the Kulturfabrik.

About

Independent Little Lies (ILL) is an interdisciplinary theatre collective that brings together theatre professionals, artists, educators and art enthusiasts. Founded during the cultural year 1995, ILL has assembled a multidisciplinary expertise in theatre creation and has staged around fifty shows during its more than 25 years of existence. www.ill.lu

Samuel Reinard composes and produces electronic music under the name Ryvage. Driven by his love of contrasts, Reinard’s synth-driven electronica and its visual incarnations reflect his personal obsessions, spanning from 80s sci-fi movie soundtracks and industrial electro to immersive installation art. Since 2017, he has performed live at festivals in Luxembourg and abroad, and opened for artists such as Rone (FR), Arnaud Rebotini (FR) and Blanck Mass (UK).

In 2018, he wrote the official soundtrack of the Luxembourg City Film Festival and released a rework of the track 'Bubbles' by Pascal Schumacher. A first 5-track EP entitled 'Tides', accompanied by 2 music videos, was released in July 2019. In 2020, he composed the music for the theatrical creation 'La Vieille qui Marchait dans la Mer' at the TNL and the soundtrack of the series 'Ausbroch', broadcast on Radio 100.7. The same year he released the track 'Tulipe' with a music video directed by Ted Kayumba and featuring dancer Jill Crovisier, which was presented at various independent festivals. www.ryvage.com
