L'Age D'Or's first album, "Shades Of Us", is the synthesis of the influences that animated the project during its previous releases. Valentin Fayaud, the band's musical soul, refined his mastery of the different styles that shaped the identity of L'Age D'Or in order to produce a sensible and frontal eight-track. It's an electrical album, in the broad sense of the term, the compositions flout the sub-genres by reconciling IDM (Clark, Oneohtrix Point Never), Bass Music (Clams Casino, Machinedrum), Ambient (Tim Hecker) and Pop.
With the urgency as a main thread, this album, written during the summer 2016, depicts a flickering world, at the very climax of its darkness, with a perspective rooted in the troubled events of our world.

Electronic musician and sound designer, founder of "L'Age d'Or" , a A/V band based in Paris.
L’Age d’Or is a duo of A/V performances and contemporary installations, based in Paris.
The duo tries to redefine a unique and immersive experience where music and video combine around several themes (symbolic, spiritual, social ...), thus offering a common language.
Based around cinematic influences, the duo mixes different skills going from sound-design, archive footage, synthesis to real shooting sequences creating their own universe: unstructured, complex and aesthetic.
Always in search of innovation, they defend creative, artistic and original ideas....
My name is Nicolas Michel.
I'm the visual live performer of the electronic AV band called L'Age d'Or.
