Alex Duloz is a multi-instrumentalist from Geneva, Switzerland. He began writing songs on the family piano at age six, and went on to study Art in Los Angeles at California Institute of the Arts.
Panaviscope is the amalgamation of his talents as both a musician and visual artist, a project where he has acted as sole sonic architect to compose, play all the instruments, sing, and design aesthetics that make up this alluring mosaic of modern pop and ominous romanticism.
Inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd and Air, Panaviscope’s sonic universe embodies the big band and falsetto vocal stylings of Supertramp, as well as elements of MGMT and Everything Everything – an aerial pop, with a powerful rhythm section that embraces psychedelic/space rock guitars, surrealist themes, and effective synths.
This is what Alex has to say about the song : “In “Talking to flowers”, you travel from electro to classic 70s rock, in a very smooth journey. This song is extremely cinematic and was inspired in many ways by the aesthetic of the New Hollywood. At the end of the track, you should wonder ‘What the hell just happened to me?’ I talk about going back to 1969. I explore a romantic vision of this period, in a comparison to our day and age.”
