Welcome to jean-nicolas Heillouis workspace. I hope you enjoy the visit !



Over the years, my interest in music, image and computer science has led me to participate in many artistic projects. This site presents the various past and ongoing pieces and projects.

In the past, I played in a group called un automne à lob-nor. I played the drums, we recorded the albums ourselves. Our label was serpentine records in grenoble. We recorded several albums and participated in several international compilations. We made a soundtrack for a super8 film and we toured Europe by the way.

After this project, we created with lens Aleksander (one of the bass and guitar player of un automne à lob-nor) the paneuropean project. Post-rock duo, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, machines and projections. We gave a few concerts and stayed in residence twice at the Tannerie. An Ep is available to listen to.

Actually, Vincent Nicolas from un automne à lob-nor has different projects Bidibop was a electronic one, and DropA a power duo rock project.

Sébatien Roux from un automne à lob-nor is an electronic music composer , you can explore his large production HERE

, enjoy!

After the un automne à lob-nor project, i created a musical research project wich is named SubPlot. It was a short transition project to find my sound and way of composition. Most of the songs of this project are not achieved and only a featuring with elodie C is available, see in the video section for more.

For recent projects, visit the news page! Enjoy !




Currently i am working on my twin materials solo project. This project mixes sampling, electronics, electrical instruments and acoustic sound recordings and aims to create musical atmospheres and travels by working on textures. The objective is to shift the sound source of its aesthetic rendering.

At the same time, i am participating in a group project called Kraft!. This project born from the meeting between Fred Mathieux aka SANYO (voice, guitars), Florian Saffer aka Panda Hurts (analogs) and myself is a musical analog electronica proposal. The first vinyl album should be released this year.



Since the 90's, i have had the opportunity to participate in the creation of several albums, several artistic projects, be present on many compilations, go on tour, rub shoulders with many musicians without whom all this would not exist, thanks to them, perfect the computer-assisted composition and my drumming and bass game, create many images...
You will find the different audio creations here. Good listening !
