The Fairy Tale :

Once upon a time…

Prikosnovénie associative label was born in Nantes, in 1990, out of the encounter of two cinema students: Frédéric Chaplain, fond of sound, and Sabine Adélaïde, experienced photographer. The word Prikosnovénie means “light touch” in Russian and aims at promoting inventive music combined with elaborate-exquisite aesthetics.

Prikosnovénie is rooted in the then flourishing alternative movement New-Wave. Prikosnovénie could define itself as half-way between the Visa label (for its independent militarism) and the 4AD English label for its enigmatic estheticism.
The first tape is entitled ‘Sacrilèges’ and gathers 12 new-wave trend bands. The label found its audience.
End 1991-1993: exiled in Paris to complete their studies, Frédéric graduates as sound engineer at Louis Lumière and Sabine as a photographer at the Gobelins School.

THE WORLD OF THE LABEL IS SHAPING ITSELF
