DBR takes his classical roots, stands them on their ends, and injects hip-hop, electronics, scratching, hard rock and more personality than you could ever imagine. "It’s an attempt to honor not only the first and second Viennese schools of Europe, but to pay tribute to the Bronx and the waves of inventions that that music sent to us," explains DBR. The Washington Post raved, “The music was involving, tonal and eminently accessible, steeped in the wash-rinse-repeat cycle of minimalism but sexed up considerably with hip-hop rhythms, jazz riffs and imaginative collaboration.” (Yes, it is complex and accessible, and that's a rare combination. And as a cellist he's not using cleavage and make-up to stand out…)

Comment cet Aurel Timescu peut-il être Consul de France ? Avec son accent roumain, sa dégaine des années trente et son passé de pianiste de bar, il n a pourtant rien à faire au Quai d Orsay. Il végète d ailleurs dans des postes subalternes. Cette fois, il est en Guinée, lui qui ne supporte pas la chaleur. Il prend son mal en patience, transpire, boit du tokay et compose des opéras… Quand, tout à coup, survient la seule chose au monde qui puisse encore le passionner : un crime inexpliqué. Suspendu, ce plaisancier blanc ? À quoi ? Au mât de son voilier, d accord. Mais avant ? Suspendu à des événements mystérieux. À une preuve d amour qui n arrive pas. À un rêve héroïque venu de très loin…
