Beyond The Ghost is the dark ambient project of French musician Pierre Laplace. Laplace was the leader of experimental rock band Vera Clouzot for 10 years, he then self-released 2 acoustic solo albums as Kenyon, and he is currently half of atmospheric folk duo The Sandman’s Orchestra, for whom he has written and produced 3 albums of original songs, as well as a reinterpretation of Kate Bush’s conceptual B-side, The Ninth Wave.
In all 3 musical projects, although they were song-oriented, Laplace experimented a lot with textures and atmospheres, so that the transition to dark ambient music was natural.
With Beyond The Ghost, Laplace has honed a sound that’s dreamy and atmospheric, but with some sense of tension and drama too. Beyond The Ghost uses a mix of soft and hardware synths, live instruments (guitar, piano, percussion …) and field recordings.
