Accident du Travail

Accident du Travail is a duo formed in the late 2000s by Olivier Demeaux (ex-Cheveu, Heimat) and Julie Normal.

Their fragile, ecstatic electronic music is born of rare instruments: Julie's ondes Martenot, a prototype synthesiser from the 1920s much used by Messiaen, Varese and Boulez, and Olivier's old church harmonium, all spiced up with a few machines.

Accident du Travail has recorded three studio albums (Bruit Direct, The Trilogy Tapes), and two live performances (including one at Cafe Oto), celebrated in The Wire and Libération among others.
