On this episode I am joined by the wonderful Laura Mazard, frontwoman of the French Progressive Symphonic Metal band Oïkoumen.

Laura is a truly cultured and creative individual with a great deal of fascinating knowledge to share.

This is reflected in the music of Oïkoumen, who released their debut album ‘Dystopia’ in 2022 – establishing their unique take on Symphonic Metal, one which is quirky, creative & somewhat dabbling in the avant garde.

In the episode Laura speaks of creating a ‘broken’ sound, which reflects the visceral themes of challenging and unstable emotions in their music. It’s a fascinating perspective and I truly admire the bands artistic approach with it.

Laura also works as an art historian and tour guide in and around Paris, creating all kinds of unique experiences for a diverse range of clientele. A particular specialty of hers is ancient music (medieval, etc) where she also incorporates her singing voice.

All of this (and much more!) makes for a fascinating conversation which absolutely flew by for me! I certainly thoroughly enjoyed it myself and hope that you do listening to it too 🙂
