Transversales proudly presents the first LP reissue of “Les granges brûlées”, original soundtrack written and performed by Jean-Michel Jarre shortly after his work experience at G.R.M (Groupe de Recherches Musicales). Probably one the first ever electronic music score, recorded with very scanty means: a VCS3 synthesizer, a Farsifa organ and three synchronized Revox tape recorders. Director Jean Chapot, who understood immediately the interest in the gap between this hyper classical rural thriller and this groundbreaking music, let Jarre absolutely free to compose. Built up around several melodic leitmotifs, the score of “Les granges brûlées” allowed Jarre to pursue his personal research: to bridge the gap between experimental music and pop music.This deluxe reissue also contains the bonus track “Happiness Is a Sad Song” composed during Jarre's time at the G.R.M.“Aphex Twin told me once that the original soundtrack of “Les granges brûlées” was one of his favorite records” Jean-Michel JarreLIMITED EDITIONREMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPESEXCLUSIVE LINER NOTES
After his first album L'obsession, Louis Fontaine is back with Ritmi Moderni, a second album in which he explores all aspects of rhythm and groove, always in a cinematic style."Ritmi Moderni" is an album inspired by the library music of the sixties and seventies, each track can lead to a different story. The idea is that while listening to track after track we dive into different universes, different images, different stories, places and landscapes. It’s an album with colorful tones, just like the stories it tells.In most of the tracks, the rhythm is the basis of the musical composition, but the search for themes and melodies remains the focal point of each track. Each theme can be associated with a story in images.
Farfalla Records allows you to discover again the music of Roger Webb (aka Paul Dupont) with this album that could have been the perfect soundtrack for a crime film of the 1970s, alternating powerful tracks with jazz-funk rhythms and melodic tracks with light/romantic themes. Tapestry was recorded for the London based recording company Chappell Recorded Music and released in 1977 exclusively for professional use.
Alone at the piano, Lucien takes us the time of a very personal first album in a deep and quiet reverie. We spend a warm winter morning in his company remembering tender memories of childhood.
Between unreleased tracks and pieces from the Kimono Orchestra revisited, Piano Matinée concludes a barely-past record trilogy, while opening the way to a vaster future. Universal, sensitive, cinematographic, the piano language spoken here by Lucien opens us to his musical world in a light that is both more authentic and accessible.
The album also tells us a personal story. That of a grandfather - an exceptional pianist but forced to give up making a career out of it when the Second World War broke out - who gave him a taste for music in his early childhood, before passing away.
Many years later, Lucien falls back on old cassette recordings of his elder, shortly after has a disturbing dream where he swears to have dialogued with him and decides to pursue the path in his own way. Self-taught, he refined his interpretation on the piano for a whole year before deciding to freeze it in the summer of 2019 on the legendary Steinway at Studios Saint-Germain.
Drawing freely from all his influences - jazz, funk, classical, cinema - Lucien delivers with Piano Matinée a separate object, as intimate as it is melodious.
