The Eye Of Time - Acoustic - Cover 2014

Tonight’s Sound of the Night comes from THE EYE OF TIME, the Solo-Project of French musician Marc Euvrie. His musical development is deeply connected with the French DIY punk and hardcore scene, though he has been classically trained as well. He used to play in several bands before he began to translate his personal reflection of the complex we are living in into music. This initated THE EYE OF TIME.

For his self-titled debut album (2012) Marc Euvrie’s critical writing exposed a dark look on the present, past and future: Linked to machines and samples, revealing an unnatural direction of the human being’s existence. His upcoming new release Acoustic, which will be released via Denovali Records soon, is a consequent change of focus. Looking for the motor, the personal needs to survive, he found himself experimenting with only cello and piano. Apparently these classical instruments turned out to be a relevant strong signal to go back to the roots with something more natural and simple to start from. Though both records seem to go in opposite directions in terms of sound and concept, a strong underlying layer stays inevitable: THE EYE OF TIME’s compositions imply a call to fight for the things we love.
