‘Force Majeure’ an impactful introduction to Gaspard Augé’s solo work, starring dazzling synth chords and a funk-fuelled bassline.

It arrives alongside a visual accompaniment directed by Filip Nilsson filmed in Turkey at the Bosphorus cymbal factory, featuring a suited Augé playing the drums and factory workers hitting bronze in unison.

Augé said: “We were really attracted by the epic visual appeal of cymbal making: bronze, fire, hammers - something almost mythological and elemental like Vulcan or the Nibelungen.

“We chose Bosphorus Cymbals because they had this very traditional process that barely changed in centuries, in this video i am just a link in the chain of production and quality control, after all these cymbals have been melted, hand hammered, and lathed into a musical object.”

More captivating visual works has been promised alongside the album rollout - hopefully Justin Bieber won't be biting Augé's solo style.
