4 producers, 4 days, 4 unique landscapes, 4 solar-powered productions.
Jump on board the LAGoodvibe mobile studio with Joachim Garraud, Trovarsi, Hugo Paris and Franck Martin for a unique four-day exploration of breathtaking landscapes and original music compositions. Travelog of a creative journey solely powered by Californian sunshine, the adventure gave us 4 days to compose, produce, mix, and master 100% solar powered tracks.
Experience daily life on the bus: hangs, creative struggles and bonding laughter as we work towards a unifying performance for this exceptional outdoors setting.
A sonic and visual journey. New sounds, all kinds of electronic music instruments, new music, but also stunning imagery including 360 videos and drone footage to form a unique 30mn road trip documentary.
From the success of the “Get Back” documentary, there is a demand for behind the scenes, exclusive access of when music is created. This movie follows our adventurers building content for an EP from scratch and finishing by one amazing concert in the desert.
LAGood Vibe is a modern autonomous professional studio built in a bus. The studio is entirely powered by the Sun. https://www.lagoodvibe.com/

"It’s under the name of Modular Vibes California that three Frenchies and an American, all fans of electro, will hit the road on April 4 aboard a bus transformed into a recording studio for a unique adventure, heading for Soggy Lake, California." - Anne Marie - MerciSF
"Last year, we wrote about Franck Martin, a local modular synthesizer wizard who hosts a monthly electronic music showcase at Noisebridge in the Mission every fourth Thursday. He’ll be at Gray Area on January 14 with his Modular California Vibes project, which includes Joachim Garraud (a famous French Touch DJ and producer for David Guetta and Jean Michel Jarre), Trovarsi (co-founder of Socal Synth Society), and Hugo Paris (Creator of the 4ms SWM module.) [..] The idea behind Modular California Vibes was to arrange commutable synthesizer music with a link to nature. “Joachim has a mobile studio powered by the sun called LAGoodVibe,” continued Martin. “We took it to the desert to be amongst ourselves and nature. We tried to be carbon neutral as much as possible, respect the environment and put all this vibe into the music that we created from just being there with friends in four different locations. We recorded our adventures as a documentary to share it with people." -
