French Goth Rock ensemble founded be Olivier Tarabo in 1984 while studying at the Artschool of Rouen.

The band uses a lot of adjusted & self-built instruments, of which the B.A.M. (Batterie Acoustique Midi - a set of genuine drums played by a programmable electromagnetic process) is probably the most prominent. It even won the price of sound inventions in Paris in 2001.

Live performances of Rosa Crux are always spectacular.

The most 'simple' stage-set includes the B.A.M., 8 churchbells, a grand piano & is built around "La Danse De La Terre".

A more extended set also includes a giant metal cage in which a man takes place & is smashed against a large iron gong.

The most spectacular stage-set is called "The Iron Games" & needs 300m2 of space to be set up. It includes a whole series of inventions, rat hurdy-gurdies, resonating cones, crane-actuated lyres, water clocks, bells and gongs of all sorts, dancers covered in sound sensors, gigantic double-basses, etc.

Current line-up:

Olivier Tarabo - Guitars, Lead Vocals

Claude Feeny - Piano, Carillon,

Hugo Lafitte - Bass

Benjamin Canu - Bagpipe

Rosa Chordis - Chord ensemble
