Welcome to my electronic music world. I'm Franck Martin


... and I'm passionate about the sounds and possibilities of electronic music. Jean-Michel Jarre was my first inspiration, but I enjoy all kinds of music genres. Electronic music, however, has a special place in my heart for its creativity and diversity.

I've been an avid listener and reviewer of electronic music for a long time, but now I want to explore the other side of the musical spectrum: making and sharing my own music. I want to learn how to use the tools and techniques of music creation, production, distribution, promotion... and to release albums that reflect my vision and style.

One of the aspects of electronic music that fascinates me is the immersive and spatial sound. I want to experiment with dolby atmos and other technologies that can create a 3D audio experience for the listeners. I want to make music that surrounds you and transports you to another dimension.

This is my journey.

New Album: Passages

Passages: The picture used for the album cover is what inspired me to do this album but also the mood of the time. Earlier in the year I had a health scare. You think about your own mortality. This past year was challenging, in the middle of a pandemic, working from home. They say the only thing that does not change is change. The sun passing through the clouds, the right imagery for Passages. The world will be different after covid-19. We are also on a path of self ecological destruction. It is a passage for humanity. I poured this mood, these emotions into this music.

It is in quadraphonic, processed to be a Dolby Atmos release and bounced to binaural for Bandcamp and other Stereo only services.

2 years, 3 months and 11 days since the album Passages is publicly released!

New Track: Dystopia

Dystopia: Downtempo track with Taiko drums, produced in Dolby Atmos. Get transported in a dystopian world.

New Album: To The Stars

Half Space Odyssey, half the Expanse, this is the cinematic approach of this album.

This album was worked over many weeks, performed on a modular synthesizer at some events then re-worked, tuned, changed.

Finally it was recorded as one take, but with different parts. You can listen to the whole album continuously or each individual tracks.

Recorded in quadraphonic, then mixed and mastered in 5.1 and the result processed for a binaural version.

Album: Symphoney

"Franck Martin's innovative entry video was filmed near the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco using a 360 camera (view this video on YouTube for the full effect). His choice of instrument is just as creative: a portable modular synth. The sounds of the water crashing on the shore add to the improvisational nature of Martin's piece. Just like the tourists walking by in the video, we were stopped in our tracks watching this entry." - Clara Maurer
