Though avatars and other types of artist expressions are fairly common Jumo does it in the spirit of releasing himself of the boundaries between audio and visuals.
Four years ago, Clément Leveau gave birth to Jumo, a musical avatar and singular identity, that allowed him to give free rein to his passion for image. Characterized by sophisticated production, smart melodies and a cinematic atmosphere, Clément makes Jumo a multi-disciplinary project in which the audio and the visual feed into each other.
” I wanted to ask my thoughts on music, or lay music on my thoughts, I don’t really know anymore, here is the first video of the series for my title and the wind?”
As a graphic designer by trade, Jumo sits at the service of a dark and visual universe that perfectly fits the contours of his music. With the release of single ‘Aléa’, marking the beginning of a fruitful relationship with the Parisian, Nowadays Records, Jumo returns with a new project via his family imprint in which music and image are in symbiosis; ‘Périodes Aléatoires’.
Throughout 2019, the musical narrative of Jumo continues to unfold with a series of EP’s laying new stepping stones for his stylistic transformation. The first, ‘Périodes Aléatoires’ sees Jumo explore new horizons, with an emotive and danceable feel. Always evocative, his music is once again inseparable from the videos that he puts forward alongside it. A hypnotic concept that marries the audio and visual experience perfectly, Jumo’s sleek and progressive sound is markedly club-oriented. Unshaken by the markers that define his difference, Jumo creates a dreamlike atmosphere, a modernity at the edge of the avant-garde, with a sense of detail bordering on perfectionism.
