Welcome in this little cyber showroom !
Here you can listen and watch several things I've done during the last months. It's only a part, I have lots of unreleased stuff.
As a freelance musician online, you learn to create on demand, and develop fast and efficient skills to create music with restriction !
Most of these orders were done in a few days.

30 year old french indie producer, songwriter & singer.
Alone with computer and guitars, Vincent Retg makes indie pop & electro songs softly floating somewhere between The Postal Service, Apparat, Kings of Convenience, Radiohead, Four Tet, Just Jack…
As 30, Vincent has already had three very different and rich musical lives :
7-15 // Classical studies, 8 years of studying baroque recorder (!)
15-23 // Teenage years and falling in love with guitar covering songs around firecamps, nicknamed ‘jukebox’
23 – 30 // Home studio addiction and electro era. Loads of producing, tests, bugs, rebooting computers, wiring cables & experimentations. Songwriting, bands, recordings, music teaching.
Dozens of demos later, debut EP ‘Plujal’ is finally released in 2013. It invites listeners to look through themselves.
Opening tittle ‘Mr Thumb’ is dedicated to Matthieu, a mystical young man literally locked in his body after an accident, that Vincent had the chance to take care of for multiple summers. A very rare friend now gone after 12 years with only his thumb as a link to communicate. An unforgettable and inspiring person.
The music is made of nervous beat, quirky sounds, guitar rides, delicate and frenchy voice singing the inner self, lost and founds, and strangeness of this world. Everything is set and we travel in Plujal, land of anythings, the place where the music was made, the place where Mr Thumb would spend his holidays.
Right now Vincent finishes a first album, dares to gets out of his den and seeks for publishing and collaborations, rehearses a solo live set, while constantly releasing new songs and tracks on soundcloud, and recording or making music with others projects and musicians.
Besides, he teaches music in schools, plays the guitar and other stuff, composse and writes in the pop rock act ‘wÖRmz’, and other bands and he’s editing a documentary about Mr Thumb that he shot last summer, while blogging on his website lemusicien.fr . To be continued !
