Building on this momentum, and joined by Yannick Dilly, IXION refined its style and released its first full album in 2011 on Avantgarde Music. To the Void was warmly received by the public and the critics.
In 2015, following the arrival on Finisterian Dead End, Enfant de la Nuit represented a great leap forward for IXION, with highly complimentary reviews in the european press. It revealed some more gothic orientated tracks.
Two years later, Return was an opportunity for Julien and Yannick, from then on working as a duo, to explore a more aquatic, terrestrial, and luminous concept. A surprising album, again greatly received.
Julien got on with new compositions in 2018. It soon appeared that this new material was in fact at the very heart of IXION’s musical universe. Thus, it became the main idea : to make a condensed and focused album, with a renewed ambition regarding the production and artwork, to bring to light the essence of IXION’s music.
L’Adieu aux Etoiles is released on October 9th 2020 via 28978 Productions and Finisterian Dead End.
