 The Algorithm fan favourite ”Will_Smith” gets the video treatment

Remi Gallego The Algorithm will_smith

Since releasing second album OCTOPUS4, French composer and multi-instrumentalist Rémi Gallego – perhaps better known by his nom de plume The Algorithm – has really expanded on his live performance, and he seems to have been having a whale of a time as a result. For a while, guitarist Max Michel was added to the lineup, but Rémi himself often picks up a guitar, as well as a keytar, in order to inject a bit more fluidity into his stage presence.

As such, the new live video for OCTOPUS4 track “Will_Smith” is more warranted than it might have been 12 months ago. Have a look:

Joining Rémi in this one is Uneven Structure drummer Jean Ferry. Often it’s Monuments‘ Mike Malyan behind the kit, but the latter’s heavy touring schedule in 2014 necessitated a replacement, and Jean has by all accounts been fantastic.

The video was shot at October’s highly successful Euroblast in Cologne, Germany, but is notable because rather than utilising the album version of the track over live video, it’s actually also a live recording of the music. Not many acts will do that, and it’s a nice touch – especially when promoting a tour; The Algorithm will be supporting The Qemists (who include amongst their number former Monuments vocalist Matt Rose) in March, following a few French dates with Kadinja, and followed by some in Italy as part of The Road To Dissonance Festival. The Algorithm were also recently announced to play ArcTanGent festival in August, which is exciting, so lots of opportunities to see them already this year. Dates for all below:
