Mahadev Cometo

As a member of The Young Gods for more than 20 years, Alain ‘Al Comet’ has been a defining influence on the industrial sound of the 80s. Leaving the Gods in 2014, he decides to turn his energies to his own evolution. Having broken through the sound-barriers of sampling, he alights on the pure ancestral sound of the Indian sitar under the name of Mahadev Cometo and offers us an entirely new sound experience:
Cometo has tamed the electric fairies that play on the small keyboards hidden inside samplers, as much as the 20 strings of a sitar. Performing on his instrument, he fuses the traditional sitar into his own universe and blends it gradually with his electronic sounds. And with visionary and expressive powers, like Orpheus on his lyre, he connects them to the soul of the world and reaches out to restore concord, harmony and symphony between the seven spheres of the cosmos.
