With this new album, French-born Timothée Quost presents the fruit of his solo work led by the years of travels, and solitary and rudimentary life experiences. Firmly anchored in the soundscapes of Copenhagen, 'Before Zero Crossing' lays out new music, noise-filled and social, always on the edge of something more. This recording, like a logbook, relates to the place, the people with whom his paths crossed, new companions or old friends. There are many elements articulated around the instinctive and powerful playing of Timothée Quost, just like the trunk of these branches of life being born / dying into infinity.

Album reviews:

Best of 2018
(Clément Lebrun - France Musique)

"If there is a thread in the work of Timothée Quost, it is that of the profusion of images that his music offers. It leads us on this journey that is the quest for transformation, it offers each time a new experience to live, until the masterful finale, an epilogue that resonates like an alarm clock."
(Raphaël Benoit - Citizen Jazz - France)

Featured in Weekly Release Dump
(Dæv Tremblay - Can This Even Be Called Music)

"Quost sounds always on the edge of something more, always keeps the listener alert and waiting for more and more adventurous sounds."
(Eyal Hareuveni - Salt Peanuts - Israel/Norway)

"Beauty sonore!"
(Andrzej Nowak - Spontaneous Music Tribune - Poland)
