La Chair des anges is an instrumental and musical work, composed of 7 musical pieces interpreted by prestigious artists such as the Debussy String Quartet, soprano singer Valérie Gabail, harpsichordist Bertrand Cuiller, organist Olivier Vernet and of course Olivier Mellano himself.
Musician of renown among the pop-rock scene, Olivier Mellano has a classical background and started his career as a violin player. His professional path is rich as well as eclectic and he experienced numerous artistic collaborations that led him to compose La Chair des anges, halfway between baroque and contemporary music (harpsichord pieces), but also in the tradition of American post-modern composers (Steve Reich, Philip Glass) or Estonian ones (Arvo Pärt).
