Written, composed and recorded over a period of nine months, “A thousand doors, just one key” is much more than a try. Beforehand, the self-taught musician had recorded close to nine albums, patiently going through a process of research, experimentation, questioning and appropriation of the tools offered to him. While this album should not, in any case, be related to the result of a process of creation in a period of confinement, it is clear that these songs resonate strangely during this time of lockdown.
Color plays an essential role in Feldup’s music, the musician being very sensitive to timbre and sound textures. However, despite this love of color, these raw tones bursting with melancholy backgrounds reveal black and white tones where the expression of feelings is gradually distilled.
Feldup’s compositions are hymns and solitary celebrations that beg to open up to the world.
The young musician confidently wears his influences on his sleeve. Everyone will recognize them. Through these titles, hymns and solitary celebrations that only ask to open up to the world, we perceive the tribute paid to his illustrious predecessors. And this tribute, this recognition are the tangible signs of an astonishing maturity.
