It's been almost three years since The D Project has released a new album. Supported by great guest musicians such as Tony Levin and Lalle Larsson to name but two, the Big Face album (2011) was highly praised by the . In May 2014, D Project will release their 4th album named Making Sense. Desbiens and Foy once again worked together to create a new classic neo-prog experience. Eight tracks of inspired music enriched by special guests; Sean Filkins (ex Big Big Train) Claude Leonetti (Lazuli), Guillaume Fontaine (Nemo) will, doubtless, stretch the listener's horizon to unexpected territories. And as the "Making Sense" title suggests, a trip back to Desbiens' "Sense" area will revive some interesting memories! Mastered by Andy Jackson of the Pink Floyd hall of fame.
"Big Face" is the third release from the neo-prog band The D-Project. The D-Project plays a form of classic neo-prog that is showcased by bright uplifting riffs that mark the sign of a great understanding of musicality within the group. Also, there is always a slight hint of Pink Floyd without their music, whether it is in the vocals or in the guitar riffs that are scattered throughout the album.
Two years after the "Shimmering Lights" album, a new D Project is in the making. In "The Sagarmatha Dilemma", STÉPHANE DESBIENS explores new musical horizons as he interprets the EVEREST EXPERIENCE in his own special way. Once again, he calls upon author and producer FRANCIS FOY to put words on his inspired music.
"Shimmering Lights" is the first CD by The D Project led by multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Stephane Desbiens. The music is a guitar-driven combination of sophisticated symphonic prog and hard rock. Stéphane is accompanied on this album by his usual team of collaborators and friends as well as an all-star cast of guest musicians.
“You have the sense when listening to Haydn that you’re in very good company; though he’s a great genius, he somehow seems like one of us”. The words of Philip Setzer. Beautifully recorded, exceptionally well played, the Emerson’s traversal of seven quartets of Haydn offers a wonderful musical journey – 1772 to 1799 in terms of chronology; in terms of musical values and growth, well, Haydn’s inventiveness and imagination are simply remarkable.
