G.E.N.E. was born in June 1987, sometime during a late-night conversation around a campfire in the Canadian woods. As might be expected in a such a setting, the talk ranged freely – over nature and technology, the world and the machine, new digital sounds and old emotional needs. That night, Vancouver-born Cleo de Mallio took the first steps on a musical odyssey that is still unfolding.

Through the years de Mallio has taken G.E.N.E. around the world and back again, from the North Woods (Life is a Melody) to the tropics (Rain Forest), from the American Southwest (KatChina) to the Indian Ocean (Diving Dreams), from the Mediterranean Sea (Mediterranean Moods) to the Land of Birds (Get the Taste)…

Her mission : create a style of music that exists at the intersection between nature and technology, that would unite the recording studio and the exotic places of the earth. Hence the name G.E.N.E., an acronym for Grooving Electronic Natural Environments !

Daughter of a pianist and a ballet dancer and graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, de Mallio is no stranger to creativity. “It’s not just another world to me,” she says. “It’s an important and necessary part of life. Creativity can only exist where mind and body are stimulated in the same way. Where could that be easier than in nature ? G.E.N.E. is my focal point” she adds.

“I take sound samples from nature and process them on my computer, as if I were mixing colours on a palette. Then I try to paint pictures of power and tenderness, elegance and depth.”
