Shadow Man

Hier fut une grande journée de travail sur le fameux livret et la version définitive de la pochette pour l'album "Lithium". Un travail long et fastidieux mais qui sera à la hauteur de nos espérances.

The artwork of the album is going straight forward. Also the booklet comes into its final stage of preparation before the final choice that will be made soon! It is a long process with some difficulties especially in the decision making process!

Les informations suivent dès que possible! Ceci est une période où le travail en coulisses foisonne vitesse TGV et comme nous sommes dans la dernière ligne droite tout se précipite maintenant pour vous donner le meilleur album possible!

Infos will info right here! As you might know everything comes now at the same time. It is like a hurdle race entering the last straight line in order to produce the best album possible!



Avant le mix ...

Avant le cocktail soit parfait, avant que le mix final de l'album atteigne son apogée, il est nécessaire de réécouter minutieusement toutes les bandes, toutes les pistes enregistrées pour clairement définir la sélection définitive!

Before the final mix, it is necessary to listen to all tracks recorded and search for mistakes etc ... This is a very long process! Takes hours and hours of listening in order to be sure that no mistakes enter the final mix!

Ce processus est lent et fatidieux, il consomme beaucoup de temps et ne présente pas grand intérêt pour vous les fans! mais il doit avoir lieu pour offrir la meilleure qualité possible pour le mix final!

Mixing is like blending - If you put a rotten fruit in your blender then the cocktail will be disgusting and we want to avoid that in order to give you the best quality mix ever!

Listen to the music and let your body rock! Some togh work right now but all members of the band go through it and give their best!

Tout le monde se donne à fond dans cette dernière ligne droite avant le gros moment du mix!

Stay tuned!




The circus is in town!

En effet le Cirque du Soleil était de passage dans la région avec son nouveau spectacle Dralion. Un show absolument superbe, à ne pas manquer sous aucun prétexte!


La qualité principale de ce cirque est de mêler émotions visuelles & émotions sonores. Un très grand mélange entre les numéros d'artistes, de la musique rock (ou du moins à tendance rock) plus un show visuel digne du nom. Les artistes savent tout faire ce qui rend le spectacle encore plus exceptionnel!

Very intense show indeed! Great artists - The numbers are just fantastic high in color!

Cette année le cirque a donné la priorié au cirque chinois! Les rois de la torsion, des sauts et autres jongleries! Epoustouflant! Breath taking!

When you are thinking about your future live show which will be the case of REEL, you look for ideas on what you can do on stage in order to offer your best to the public! Well the Cirque du Soleil is a great aplce to learn a lot!

Really and go and see the show! Ne ratez pas ce spectacle unique!



REEL music is alive!

Well ... well ... well ... here is some INSIDE news from the last session that took place on September 22nd.

6 songs are edited regarding the vocals parts: heat of the action, echoes, who's behind the door, another day and rythms of life. The process was very interesting and quite "easy" as the vocal parts are not too long on these songs and we had many takes available to be able to cut the best the vocal lines possible!

Editing was just great!

Pat then came in and did some additional keys parts on all songs. On reel music the job done is just brilliant - You will be blasted! on it never rains he overdubbed the guitar solo giving you the feel we played it live together! Technology is brilliant and Pat a real pro!

4 songs to go and then the real mix takes place and all will definately come to life! All sounds already great and the mix will make it even greater! A bombastic album "Lithium" will be! We can't wait to hear it! So imagine it! Soon available!

Stay tuned on REEL RADIO WEB - More news are coming! Great infos and insights!



REEL goes english

Hello to all the english speaking people that are hooked on!

This is the first note written in english to those people who want to know more about REEL Band & Music.

It is a small but hopefully a very good summary about what REEL is about, what we do and where we are going!

REEL came to life back in the old days. A school band formed by BENE, Dominique, Olivier and Thomas. During those crazy school years, REEL became a known band in its region with many songs written and many shows played. In 89/90 the first single "streets of my dreams" was recorded, distributed and sold about 2000 copies. The band then separated for personal reasons. During those years BENE played in some bands but REEL was his place to be. A couple months ago, during the recording of the single "J'rêve" for a swiss french singer called Marilyn, BENE met some great artists which accepted to play on what would be the very first album of REEL. Jay, Jul and Patrick are session musicians playing in various bands and became since some months now members of REEL for the recording of the album "Lithium" which is due for release by end of October, start November. No defined date yet and it will depend on too many things for the moment!

The web site started in the french language to give the basis to all potential fans! REEL WEB will add, in the future many more news in english but also in German and Italian, making it the only official place to be for all the international fans to have the right information and latest news!
