UNE VIE AILLEURS is a series of three documentaries about the people who, because of their belief, their life choices or the profession they practice, decided to live in a different way:
Workers on an oil platform off the coast of Congo, crew members of an atomic submarine or
Nuns in a Cistercian monastery.

Although they share common musical themes and motives, this three environments are very dissimilar and each one has its own personality and got its own sound:
For the highly industrial and metallic nature of the platform, I used metallic clanging sounds and gamelan samples, as well as kalimba and steel guitar.
For the submarine, I went into a more electronic and militaristic territory.
And for the monastery, I had to summon a softer sound, using chromatic percussions, harp and piano, as well as electronic enhancements.
Concerning the elements common to all episodes, I adapted the themes so that they fit the three different moods.
The album includes music from each episode: The oil platform (track 1 – 15), the submarine (track 16 – 27) and the monastery (track 28 – 37).

The series will be broadcasted on French TV channel France 5. More infos (In french):
