French singer Emilie Simon will be making her debut Singapore concert this March as part of her 2015 Asian tour.

Emilie Simon is known for her bold, experimental blend of electronic and pop music. Throughout her musical career, Emilie Simon has won 3 awards at the prestigious Victoires de la Musique (the French equivalent of the Grammy Awards), including Electronic/Groove/Dance album of the year in 2004 and 2007, and also Original Film or Television Soundtrack of the Year for her work on the soundtrack of the documentary ‘La marche de l'empereur’ (March of the Penguins).

'Menteur' Music Video

In the midst of her search for sounds for her album, she was contacted by film producer Luc Jacquet to compose the original soundtrack for his Oscar award-winning documentary film La marche de l’empereur (March of the Penguins), concerning the annual migration of emperor penguins. In 2006, Emilie went on to triumph at the Victoires de la Musique ceremony once again, winning the award for the Best Original Film Soundtrack of the year.

In 2009, Emilie started writing songs arranged for accompaniment on piano, rather than a computer. “I even forbade myself to go near a computer for a year and a half,” Emilie said, “I wanted to see what I was capable of without my usual comforts around me.”

The result was a collection of sounds reflecting Emilie’s impression of New York City — an urban, black and white musical that became her next album, The Big Machine. On this album, Emilie’s experimental inclination involved the clever use of traditional Chinese instruments – together with keyboards – as a vestige of her long stay in the heart of Chinatown.
