L’appartement started as a unique music piece. It was performed for the first time in the radio program 4 x 4 in 2008. As time went by, Bruno Pernadas developed this work based on guitar, loops, keyboards, samples and electronics. It combines Folk and Jazz elements mixed with tonal ambiences using speech and sound samples as a guide to a musical journey where improvisation takes a main part in the music.
