alias Francois Lopez is a musician with multiple talents, a song writer
above all. First of all, he is known on the rock scene as a member of
the Clandestins and Guerilla.. For the past ten years, he has been equally
composed the music for about ten modern dance creations. In 2000, Guardi
inaugurated a new project called Burden, which involves inviting different
musicians, from different horizons, to compose together electronic music
and to propose a graphic artist to design the cover of the final album.
The first CD “Burden 01” has been released with Guardi together
with Jeff Hicter, Kristina Solomoukha designed the CD cover .
The second release is available today, resulting from the collaboration
of three musicians, Push Push, Jeremy Bristock and Guardi, the visuals,
this time were made by the artist Melik Ohanian. Following the electronical
music carved out on the first album, Burden 02 is a mixture of sounds:
jungle, trance, experimental which surprise due to the music’s sometimes
lyrical atmosphere and its energetic dance floor music resemblance.

BURDEN 02 - Snark/Hokus Pokus
The favourable results from the brainstorming initiated
by Guardi alias Francois Lopez .
He proposes a new type of “techno” borrowed as much from the
techniques used for making the original sound track of films as from the
alchemy of trance. It is difficult to be bored with this second album,
which emerges with a profusion of percussion and in strong rythmique form.
The dance machine plays on in syncopation and «imparable»
in the way of the Chemical Brothers approaching the creativity of “Art
of Noise”. From the first track this uninhibited emancipated jubilation
is maintained, from time to time bubbling over with nice surprises, sometimes,
it goes the whole way to give us a dose of dance floor tubes thanks to
“Follow the Leader” a futuristic sacred hymn or “Harpy”
as though straight out of a rock and roll opera from the third millennium

Burden the electro revelation
Here is the electro, which make you hit the ceiling! With
a hallucinate richness in sonority… an elaborate French Touch, marrying
trance, break beat, modern or experimental film music, never loosing the
track with a beat made for the dance floor……a revelation!
02 in Soundkeys
Electronic music in
its widest sense, difficult to stick a label on it, it s so rich and varied.
The rock, lyric or jungle passages respond with a sonority of trance music,
where each measure marks an evolution, where everything is movement. Each
time one listens to the album, there is always something to discover ..
Burden 01 in Keyboards
Burden is on the way to become the spearhead of the renewed French electronic
music. In the wake of Aphex Twin, Autechre and the best representation
of the electronica,……Blade Runner, lost in a techno breakbeat
futurist club…a revelation, and a remarkable entity on the border
of the French Touch. Jean-Henri Maisonneuve
