Didier Séverin Death – Obituary News: The death of Didier Séverin was announced late Thursday afternoon, March 24. He was 51 years old at the time. He has put an end to a completely unique voice in contemporary French-speaking music.
According to letemps.ch, Didier Séverin provided the vocal parts in Knut. He then chose to silence himself rather than shut up. He launched (from Conthey and his roots in Valais) into the world of analog synthesizers in the 2010s with Olivier Hähnel and Mathieu Jallut.
This is the strom|morts experience, a palindrome project in which he, among others, contributed to popularizing the aesthetics of the drone – an ancient musical practice consisting of playing notes held for a long duration to bring out strata of harmonic intertwining, phantom chords, and resonances – with others.
