DJ F16 Falcon joined me for a very special show this month. He has been digging into Jean-Luc Nest’s archives for months and provided a perfect 60-min long introduction to the work of the Alsatian composer.

Jean-Luc Nest began his musical explorations with traditional instruments, including his beloved Accordion as well as electric and church organs, before discovering sound synthesis in 1978. In 1982, he took part in the digital synthesis revolution after discovering Wolfgang Palm’s synths. Nest became a sound designer for Palm’s company, PPG, and created his own sound synthesis system. He never ceased to compose for various musical projects, ranging from duets with percussionist Jean-Michel Collet to compositions for large orchestral ensembles. Since the early 1980’s, he’s been making his own singular way in the world of meditation and « wellness » music, standing out by its variety of musical approaches, and a very singular use of Accordion, an instrument whose reputation has been suffering a lot from the success of the likes of Yvette Horner and André Verchruen.

Jean-Luc Nest is still actively composing music, you can hear his latest projects here : https://jeanlucnest.bandcamp.com
