On his third solo album following the success of ternel t Ezechiel Pailhs the founder of the electro duo Nze is exploring through piano and synths the encounter between poetry and song. In this new work he has set to music verses by William Shakespeare Victor Hugo Pablo Neruda and on three songs those of the poet Marceline Desbordes-Valmore a pioneer of romanticism who notably influenced Verlaine and Baudelaire. For Oh Pailhs wanted to explore further the adaptation of poems into songs. Bien Certain is once again taken from William Shakespeare. Tu te rappelleras comes from Pablo Nerudas collection La centaine damour. Oh Pourquoi te cacher is from Victor Hugo. As for Sans loublier La sincere and Javais froid they were all written by Marceline Desbordes-Valmore a 19th century French poetess still fairly unknown.
