History

The first time I presented this concept to the public was in 2005 at the international music conference Musexpo in Los Angeles, California.

While standing in the conference room I asked to the audience and lecturers their opinion about a music expression emerged in Europe for the need of defining an upcoming European identity.My name is Marc Durandeau and I am a singer-songwriter with a transnational identity French father and a Catalan mother. I’ve lived in Catalonia, United States, France, Luxembourg and now Germany. I write and sing in different languages. Every language has a cultural code that influence my compositions, lyrics and arrangements, there for when I create a repertoire is full of diversity. Then journalists and professionals ask how do I market this concept? Since 2005 the answer has been: in the Pan European Music genres.

In 20014 after meeting with Daniel Thürler a folk Swiss music composer and accordionist we have created in 2018 along with the guitarist Alex Miralles and the bassist Alfred Mosimann the first Pan European Folk Band called Elements in Motion (e-motion).

I am developing targets to settle The Pan European Music in a place where other artists could maybe feel as well comfortable within.

Europe in Motion

If you are dying for a change
What are you waiting for
The Universe will roll with you

Why do you hold on to your expectations and patience
When you are so much in pain
Look for the strength to cross lines
Walk to a new life tomorrow is yours to create

Welcome to Europe in motion
Soar with your dream to your station
Welcome to Europe in motion
Take your dream to your space station

Like when you skydive for the first time
You’re feeling so high
When you follow your dreams
This is the sound of your heart
It’s beating so hard cause
You might get what you want

Welcome to Europe in motion…

And when your addictions whisper low
I kiss you so softly and hold you close
Just let them all go

Welcome to Europe in motion…
