The man behind Melodium is Laurent Girard. He was born in 1975 and lives in Angers, France. In 1999, he contacts the label Tugboat to ask for a cd of one of their bands, Isan. At the same time, he sends some of his own compositions, and receives a kind reply from Glen Johnson telling him to send him other tracks.
Glen Johnson sent then the tape to a friend label, Static Caravan, who released his 7" called "Rhythmil".
