MANU FERAMUS - Engineer, Producer, Musician.
Manu Feramus trained as both a musician and recording engineer and so is uniquely placed to understand and realise the ideas of the performing artist in the studio environment.

As a drummer Manu Feramus toured and recorded with French popstar Renan Luce from 2006 to 2010 which enabled him to acquire experience as a working musician at the very highest level of the industry; playing many stadium concerts including a glorious homecoming at Stade de Marmande (see newspaper report right); two tours with “Zenith”, recording a studio album, "The Clan of Miros”; plus tours in Quebec, Switzerland, and Belgium etc. including the Vieilles Charrues festival, the Paleo festival, Solydays etc . Many studio recordings with artists such as Salvator Adamo “Le Bal des Gens Biens”; Jean Guidoni singing Prevert and Kosma; and with Anna Chalon on the soundtrack of the film "Je l’aimais " with Daniel Auteuil confirmed his arrival as a sought after session musician.

As a sound engineer he toured with Orly Chap (Polydor / Blue Line) in 2004; Then with the famous French group Slam Spoke Orkestra; and the first embodiment of the TRIMX album produced and arranged by his friends and colleagues Thomas Milteau and Thomas Coeuriot in 2005. Manu studied sound engineering at BEP Electronics in Foulayronnes and BAC STI Electronics in Bordeaux: plus at Roubaix in BTS Audiovisuel (Option Sound). Internships in The Studio Ferber in Paris and "La Boites à Son" at Châtillon followed.



Since his return to Lot-et-Garonne and Monteton in 2011, Manu has worked on many projects with musicians from the region. As well as international actists such as Paul Godfrey of Morcheeba. Their collaboration created new productions including Aschcombe, Janko Nilovic, and Single Planet Autism. He is currently co-producing an album with rising star Paola Vera.
