THE BAND


Le Sacre du Tympan was established in April 1998, when the first recording demos were done at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris. It is here where Fred Pallem meets most of the 17 musicians who will compose his orchestra.

The orchestra has performed in many festivals in France and abroad, offering various creations (André Popp directories, François de Roubaix, circus theme …) and many collaborations (M, Sébastien Tellier, Sanseverino, Feist, Hugh Coltman, Sandra Nkake …).

From the beginning, the artistic process of the Sacre du Tympan is to merge “popular” music (pop, rock) and “learned” music (jazz, contemporary) while summoning images in the mind of the listener: the film look is still very present in the compositions of Fred Pallem, like his latest program “Soundtrax”.

FRED PALLEM

Fred Pallem starts music by himself at the age of 14. At first he listens to pop-rock records like Pink Floyd, Chicago, Beatles. Then he turns to jazz with Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Herbie Hancock ... His statements allow him to understand the mechanisms of composition and orchestration. In 1996, he entered the Conservatoire de Paris Jazz and improvised music department to follow the classes of François Théberge (arrangements) and Jean-François Jenny-Clark (bass). He plays his compositions for various formations: symphony orchestra, string orchestra, quintet of saxophones, brass, big band ... The same year, he became the composer of the Troupe du Phénix, a theatre company and music hall created by Guillaume Cramoisan and Laurent Madiot. He composes the original music for their shows Twelfth night (Shakespeare) and The Splendor and Death of Joaquin Murieta (Pablo Neruda). He creates his band Le Sacre du Tympan in 1998. It is made up of twenty young musicians met for the most part in the CNSMDP. Among them we find Vincent Taeger, Rémi Sciuto, Mederic Collignon, Daniel Zimmermann, Christophe Monniot ... The name of the band is obviously a nod to the Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky. Meanwhile, Fred Pallem composes and arranges for film, television, songs and live shows recently as the Crazy Horse cabaret directed by Philippe Decouflé.
