Astéréotypie & Laetitia Møller

Rock and electro band

Astéréotypie is a rock and electro band founded in 2010 at a writing workshop facilitated by music therapists at the Institut médico-éducatif in Bourg-la-Reine (Hauts-de-Seine). The collective was originally made up of four artists on the autistic spectrum. Whilst continuing to pursue the experimental writing begun in the workshops, the group began to shift into a rock register when several musicians joined the project in 2015. Astéréotypie quickly went beyond the hospital milieu to integrate the mainstream rock music circuits, becoming emblematic of a more inclusive music scene.

Journalist and filmmaker Laetitia Møller spent more than a year with Astéréotypie, during which she filmed the documentary L’Énergie positive des dieux, a film which captures the energy, humour and collective spirit of this extraordinary group.


Astéréotypie is made up of musicians Christophe L’Huillier, Claire Mahé, Benoit Guivarch, Arthur B. Gillette and Eric Dubessay and singer-songwriters Yohann Goetzmann, Stanislas Carmont, Aurélien Lobjoit, Kévin Vaquero and Claire Ottaway
