Led by Dominique Grimaud, Vidéo-Aventures is the gathering of numerous musicians hard-to-classify, such as Gilbert Artmann andr Cyril Lefebvre… They offer a music full of references and winks to Erik Satie, Captain Beefheart and The Residents. During the Eighties, the band was noticed for its innovative use of synthesizers, in particular the famous Synthi AKS.
Vidéo-Aventures even entered the charts in New Musical Express, and the following decade, their first opus was chosen as one of the twenty-five best analog synthesizers album by French magazine Guitares Et Claviers. "Oscillations" features seventeen electronic pieces recorded between 1979 and 1984. Some were used as the basis for songs on their albums, others remained unreleased until now.
