SYNCHRO RHYTHMIC ECLECTIC LANGUAGE'S former bassist, along with other former members of this group (J.Y RIGAUD, J. MAKA, G. CURBILLON) and several very talented guests (A. JEAN-MARIE, J.L BUCCHI), follows in the footsteps of that group, playing a colourful, spicy, warm jazz rock influenced by the rhythms and perfumes of the West India. It's an exotic, tropical and spellbinding jazz rock.

After having made several cassettes, Bernard XOLOTL was able to make a record of his very original music. Going beyond the cliches and limits inherent in the synthetic movement, he offers his own idea of synthetic music giving this style a new dimension and a new direction. By combining the use of strings and synthesizers, B.XOLOTL celebrates a lyrical, suggestive, celestial and sensitive music.

This line up of five musicians (two keyboards, vocals, saxophone, bass, drums) is following a totally original and unclassifiable musical direction. It produces a music which is inspired at the same time by classical jazz, free jazz, repetitive electronic music (particularly Terry RILEY), improvised music, jazz rock and progressive rock. X-TET presents a powerful, vibrant and inventive music, dominated by the hypnotic, obsessive chords and floating background sounds of both keyboards. The singer's dynamic and delirious singing and the saxophonist's fiery and luminous flights inflame this music. The saxophonist's flashing and fierce style evokes Elton DEAN on SOFT MACHINE'S third.
