Theorem of Joy is a jazz band with North African and post-rock inspirations.
This dreamlike and impressionistic project mixes North African sounds, post-rock trips, jazz liberties, and smooth pop flavors. It takes you running into the imagination of Miyazaki, washing you up on a Mediterranean shore, sliding on a thread stretched between two destinies, meditating to the sound of an Indian raga, exorcising your inner demons.
Vocal cords, strings of the violin, the double bass, the guitar, a line stretched over the cliff, raw nerve, a tightrope… Between singular melodies and unbridled improvisations, Theorem of Joy, led by its leader, the double bassist Thomas Julienne, are trailblazers.
Their eponymous debut album was released in 2018 and was very well received by the critics who described it as “one of the most beautiful albums of spring 2018”, “sophisticated,” and “indispensable.”
A second album, l’Hiver, will be released in 2021.
