Yes, that's a chicken.

Igorrr is the main pseudonym of French electronic music artist Gautier Serre. He also was a member of the group Whourkr, along with Yann Coppier. His musical output is akin to Venetian Snares in that he uses a lot of breaks in his music, and he labels it "Baroquecore" because he makes Breakcore and also blends in a lot of Baroque music. He is very popular in the Breakcore scene.


Tropes:

  • Amen Break: Par the course of breakcore.
  • Bilingual Bonus: He often samples French songs and... TV shows. Most of his songs have titles in French as well - examples include "Cheval" ("Horse"), "Viande" ("Meat") and "Parpaing" ("Breezeblock").
  • Careful with That Axe: Savage Sinusoid opens with an example of this.
  • Chiptune: "Parpaing" takes a left-turn into this after the first chorus, and "Houmous" also utilizes this at the very end.

  • Deranged Animation: Very Noise is this
  • Dream Team: Erlend Caspersen has played bass in both of his albums.
  • Everything Is an Instrument: And how. Even flies.
  • French Accordion: "Musette Maximum" combines a typical accordion waltz with blast beats and Harsh Vocals to amusing effect.
  • Genre Roulette: Samples draw from many different styles of music, leading to this happening multiples times per song. Breakcore, baroque, more traditional metal, chiptune, polka, and more are all fair game. All of this combined with chickens, bizarre sound effects, and out-and-out screaming makes for some incredibly diverse music.
  • Indecipherable Lyrics: While there isn't a lack of songs in English, many of the project's songs tend to be transcribed by the syllable for how bizarre they sound. Good luck in particular with songs like "ieuD".

  • Last Note Hilarity: "ieuD", a very somber baroque metal song with a blood-pumping climax at the end...ends with a guy playing random notes on a recorder.
  • Metal Scream: Sampled a lot, to creepy effect.
  • Retraux: The music video for "Parpaing" uses shots of an 8-bit Corpsegrinder during the aforementioned Chiptune example.
  • Surreal Music Video: ieuD and Opus Brain.
  • Spoken Word in Music: Used in "Lullaby For a Fat Jellyfish," with spoken French at the beginning of the song.
  • Word Salad Lyrics: Most of the lyrics of his songs are unintelligible. If you search lyrics for any song from Savage Sinusoid, you'll see it's all incoherent gibberish.
