“I hope this album exudes as much tenderness as it does illusion of being able to lift a truck with one hand.”
Speaking about his upcoming live appearance with his mysterious ‘computerband’, he says: “Playing live opens the doors to a world in perpetual mutation and a real-time communion with the public.
Handcrafted, my Computerband is a musical instrument I play manually.
It’s now very much alive… It’s also the symbol of a dream come true because, instead of having to have my eyes glued to a computer screen, I can make my music in real time via a giant monitor facing the audience.
It’s this combination of sweat and steel that makes it so dazzlingly beautiful.” (Jackson)
Jackson & His Computerband or simply Jackson (his real name is Jackson Fourgeaud) is a French electro musician.
After an intensive foray into rock, he began his electro career making acid house at Pumpkin Records in 1996.
