The "Shades of Us" performance is mixing video projection on two rectangular screens (or a large wide screen) and lights programmation synchronised with sounds.
L'Age D'Or's first album, "Shades Of Us", is the synthesis of the influences that animated the project during its previous releases. Valentin Fayaud, the band's musical soul, refined his mastery of the different styles that shaped the identity of L'Age D'Or in order to produce a sensible and frontal eight-track. It's an electrical album, in the broad sense of the term, the compositions flout the sub-genres by reconciling IDM (Clark, Oneohtrix Point Never), Bass Music (Clams Casino, Machinedrum), Ambient (Tim Hecker) and Pop.
With the urgency as a main thread, this album, written during the summer 2016, depicts a flickering world, at the very climax of its darkness, with a perspective rooted in the troubled events of our world.
