Bernard Grancher a d’abord officié à la radio dans un show à base de collages sonores, d’incantations débridées, d’improvisations bruitistes.
Commencent alors des collaborations fructueuses, hexagonales et internationales:
Le duo Marseillais Sugarcraft tout d’abord avec qui il enregistre 4 albums sous le nom Audace.
Jean-Louis Costes avec qui il enregegistra un EP resté encore inédit.
Le groupe americain Vas Deferens Organazation (dont la tête pensante, Eric Lumbleau, rédigeait le blog Mutant Sounds) lui proposera d’enregistrer un split LP avec Audace et l’Italien Ben Presto.
Mais surtout Yan Hart-Lemonnier qui l’accueillera au sein de son label EgoTwister records et qui l’aidera à produire son premier LP, Monsieur Délicieux en 2013.

Fort de cette expérience, les deux compères n’en restent pas là et enregistrent un second album, Cocktail Monotone.
C’est finalement Gonzaï records qui va sortir cet audacieux LP, acide et amer, rempli de tubes imparables (…)

Rêver comme le Cristal, album instrumental de Bernard est un journal et défouloir musical où il pousse synthés et boites à rythme dans leurs derniers retranchements. N’appartenant à aucune école ou chapelle de la musique électronique, cet album à la beauté étrange est non formaté, sans compromis, nihiliste, pur et brutal.

Bernard Grancher started his career by hosting a radio show, which was crafted with sound collages, outrageous incantations and noisy improvisations.This resulted in productive artistic collaborations with French and international artists:Grancher recorded 4 albums with Marseille duo SUGARCRAFT under the moniker AUDACE.
( available via egotwisterrecords.bandcamp.com/album/audace-vinyl-lp )He recorded an EP with the french performer and musician Jean-Louis Costes–a record that stayed unreleased to this day.The American band VAS DEFERENS ORGANIZATION (leaded by Eric Lumbleau from the blog MUTANT SOUNDS) invited him for a split LP with AUDACE & BEN PRESTO.Yann Hart-Lemonnier and his independent label EGO TWISTER RECORDS helped to produce his first LP, “Monsieur Délicieux” in 2013.
( available via egotwisterrecords.bandcamp.com/album/monsieur-d-licieux-vynil-lp )They eventually recorded and produced together a second effort: “Cocktail Monotone” released on GONZAï Records in 2016( available via gonzairecords.com/album/cocktail-monotone )

Rêver comme le Cristal, is an intense instrumental album, both musical journal and lightnin rod where Bernard is pushing his synths and beatboxes to their limits. Alienated from any electronic music trend, this weirdly beautiful album is non- formatted, uncompromising, nihilist, pure and brutal.
