Gilles Coronado Guitarist


A singular figure on the French scene, Gilles Coronado has nevertheless put his leadership role into parentheses to play with others: after leading the band Urban Mood in the 90s, he is found alongside big names in the jazz scene. French (Louis Sclavis, Magic Malik, Vincent Segal ...), song (Philippe Katerine, Fred Poulet ..) and within Stéphane Payen's Thôt or Sarah Murcia's Caroline. Originally trained to be a guitarist, influenced by jazz, rock, song and even by dance and theater, his music is lively and rich, in direct contact with the present. In recent years, the desire to rewrite for a collective created from scratch has pushed him to set up a brand new group simply called Coronado, a singular quartet bringing together Matthieu Metzger (alto saxophone), Antonin Rayon (keyboards) and Franck Vaillant (drums) which leaves on La Buissonne its first album: "Au pire, un bien". Traveling companions that Gilles Coronado has chosen carefully, to create a collective rather than a succession of isolated names. "The rhythmic, pulsating scansion has always been at the heart of my reflections, in a natural and obvious attraction, and more than the pitches of sounds, it is rather the sensations of passing time, of its internal division, which resonate particularly in me, explains the guitarist. Rather than seeing it as a temporal prison, I find myself dreaming in the company of other musicians to develop multiple, singular forms, wefts woven together, a collective sound state generated by the absence of a specific soloist. The electronic inputs from each other also make it possible to interfere with the initial sounds of the instruments, to achieve interference with who does what. At the end of the day “At worst, a good."
