The Grissini Project is a group of 4 musicians specialized in the music of video games, anime and movies.
In 2010, Romain Vaudé, pianist and organist of the group, created the Grissini Project. Via a YouTube channel, his first idea was to combine his talent for music acquired in the conservatory with his passion for video games, anime and film.
After a few videos of arrangements for solo piano or for solo organ, the one-man band expands over the years and over the meetings: first Bastien Vidal as a violinist, then Alice Duport-Percier as a singer and finally Marwane Champ who joined the ensemble in 2016 as a cellist.
It’s also the quality of the videos produced that has improved over time, with several of them becoming viral and cumulative views on YouTube now approaching 15 million.
All musicians trained in classical music in Europe’s largest higher music education institutions, they are also longtime friends and for the most part passionate gamers, eager for mangas, anime and cinema.
Their principle is to present only handmade arrangements that are faithful to the original music, with the greatest respect for the scores of composers such as Nobuo Uematsu and Yoko Shimomura (Final Fantasy), Kow Otani (Shadow of the Colossus), Joe Hisaishi (Studio Ghibli), Jeremy Soule (The Elder Scrolls), Koji Kond o and Manaka Kataoka (The Legend of Zelda), Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger) or Koichi Sugiyama (Dragon Quest). Their artistic references are mainly Kyle Landry and Yumeduo.
With their instrumental know-how, they have the joy of proposing an unforgettable musical journey according to the most iconic music of this musical repertoire, which will give pride to the memories and emotions of gamers, otakus or other passionate music lovers.
