Arnaud Rebotini

Songwriter, Composer, Performer, Producer


“I care about my free­dom when I’m work­ing on my own albums, but I also appre­ci­ate being in ser­vice of a greater project, a work in which music only plays a part.”

With his music band Black Strobe found­ed in 1997, Arnaud Rebo­ti­ni released two albums: Burn Your Own Church (2007) and God­for­sak­en Roads (2014). Both were fol­lowed by inter­na­tion­al tours. He mixed pop, elec­tron­ics, jazz and con­tem­po­rary music, ana­log syn­the­siz­ers, winds, brass, strings, elec­tric gui­tar, and voice on Organique (2000), his first album under the pseu­do­nym Zend Aves­ta. Pas­sion­ate about ana­log syn­the­siz­ers, he also devot­ed his career to elec­tron­ic pro­duc­tions: he released two albums in his own name on his new label Black­strobe Records: Music Com­po­nents (2008) and Some­one Give Me Reli­gion (2011). These pro­duc­tions also marked his col­lab­o­ra­tion with the GRM (Groupe de Recherche Musi­cale). He notably col­lab­o­rat­ed with Chris­t­ian Zanési on the album Fron­tières (2016), mix­ing ana­log syn­the­siz­ers, acoustic sounds, and con­crete music. He also com­posed film scores such as the ones of Robin Campillo’s East­ern Boys (2013) and BPM (Beats per Minute), Grand Prix of the 2017 Cannes Film Fes­ti­val, for which he won the César for Best Orig­i­nal Music and the Lumière Prize in 2018.
