IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to schedule conflict, we were requested to change our screening last minute. We apologize for all inconveniences. We'll be screening the surreal 'Leo the Last' by John Boorman instead, still opened by a warming performance by Benoit Guerroué's SUNMOON.
Benoit Guerroué is a French native who spent his youth the in the mystical land of Brittany, where he started playing shows and self-releasing an impressive amount of material under the name CARBONIC. Ten years ago he moved to the US where he continued recording, collaborating, and touring/playing in bands.
His performances are extremely varied, ranging from songs with just an acoustic guitar to more experimental renditions incorporating loops, electric guitar, keyboard. His live performance has presented as a 2-piece, 3-piece, and even 7-piece band. Leading and unifying all manifestations of his band, however, is a voice that is sublime, and otherworldly; a voice that comes from the heart, softly taking you away to another realm.
Today playing under the Moniker SUNMOON, Benoit continues to channel his inspiration (whether it be Nature, love, or music...) through this special inner world to explore expression through sound and create a singular and very personal work of art.
