Glass Museum

Music Band
In 2016, Glass Museum was conceived of as a pair—at the time, Martin Grégoire and Antoine Flipo could only count on one another. Carried by their victory at the tremplin de Dour after only several weeks of existence, they then needed to create a foundation of living musical material to carry their scrupulous tracks, all based on a battle between the drums and the piano. Two years, fifty-some concerts, and several awards later, the duo is turning a new leaf with their album Deux.
