ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine being placed in a time machine and brought to a seedy nightclub in Berlin May 27, 1927 at 3:33 a.m. The music you would hear streaming through the smoke-filled room would be similar to Désar’s latest album “Beyond the Law”. Mixing German cabaret, David Bowie-esque vocals and Tori Amos-like piano playing the composer lets you in on the chaos of his creativity.

Lucien Désar (pronounced "Loo-see-in Daay-Zarr "), is a Romantic – a musical poet for the modern age. Unrestricted by a conformist attitude to pop conventions and standards, this composer and multi-instrumentalist explores the mystical and mysterious through his moody compositions.

Désar was born in Georgetown South Carolina. A childhood fear of anything Désar considered "haunting" – including ghosts, vampires, graveyards, and death itself –has developed into his personal obsession, one that became fostered by the goth revival that blossomed in the American music underground during the late Nineties. Fueled by diverse cultural inspirations – the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Graeme Revell, and Peter Murphy; the photography of ManRay; the artwork of Edward Gorey; the films of Tim Burton; the literature of Shakespeare, Keats, and Poe – and also influenced by Celtic, renaissance, jazz, Caribbean, German, Italian, and African musical styles and rhythms – Désar reveals his dark passions in the gothic rock and neo-classical styles prevalent in his work.

To release his own musical output, Désar founded his own label, Silent Spirit Records. He says his company name "was inspired by my spiritual ties to the Native American Iroquois tribe." Lucien also hopes to release music by other artists on Silent Spirit.

Désar in the past 4 years embarked on several music projects that included 4 bands,7 film soundtracks, and acting. "I was getting a little bit burned out from the music industry, so I did acting for awhile just to try to prevent myself hating music" explained Désar. Using the revenue as a background extra in films such as "The Departed", "Brotherhood", "The Game Plan", and "21" Désar began production on his next album "Beyond The Law". "Beyond The Law is an album that I should have done right after Land Of The Blind. I feel like a lot of the things I did at my life from the release of that album in 1997 to this one was one long detour." quips Désar.

Ultimately music is a way for this artist to explore personal themes as well as send out positive messages to his listeners, even when tackling morose, and sometimes morbid, subjects. Whether performing a melancholy piano sonata or a moody rock song, Lucien Désar seeks to illuminate the darkness around him and transform it into an invigorating listening experience.
