Post-rock, ambient & soundtrack www.thebows.tv
I record electric and acoustic guitar for anything from singles to full albums, ambient soundscapes, film score, etc.
I have a band, THE BOWS, and here is a little review:
'The post-rock and ambient music from THE BOWS combines electronic elements and synths, acoustic drums and piano, electric guitars and symphonic instruments. The french band, led by Ben Pelletier, collaborates with cinematographers to write epic tracks or intimate melodies that make movies, tv shows or trailers more sensational and evoke powerful emotions.'
