"Their performance leads the audience into a world that could have been..."
Their music can be defined as a junction of several varieties of music. They were inspired by steampunk, dieselpunk and retro-futurism trends (mostly represented by bands such as Vernian Process, Clockwork Dolls and solo artists as Veronique Chevalier), long before they were familiar with the steampunk subculture. They have performed on many stages in France and abroad.
Victor Sierra was, for a while marginally involved in techno music. Some years ago one of the most prominent techno booking organizations, Technopol, labeled them, "transversal". They have been part TechnoParade and other electronic music festivals. Victor Sierra eventually came to feel that they were limited by the techno world and chose a more "transversal" and "uchronial" feel.
At this time, Victor Sierra takes advantage of every experience mixing a powerful electronic rhythm section with traditional instruments and sounds of various origins. On stage, their equipment is decorated to create some kind of Nautilus/Airship ambiance. They use video extensively and different types of objects to go beyond the simple band on stage appearance. Their songs are written in English, French, Spanish with some other languages, including Yiddish.
