from Hector Zazou - "Geologies" (MTM 20), 1990.
Hector Zazou (1948 - 2008) was one of the leading French composers and producers in the field of "new musics" and electronic music. He is famous for his innovative concepts and his many collaborations with artists such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Dead Can Dance, David Sylvian, Jon Hassell, Brian Eno, John Cale, Harold Budd, to name but a few.
Geologies is one of his early recordings, released by the Belgian company "Crammed Discs". One could define Geologies as chamber music for electronic instruments, string quartet and various acoustic instruments (flute, guitar, trumpet, saxophones). Intimate, climatic, melodic, neoclassical and aerial at the same times, this is a beautiful ambient music with a specific French touch, with reminiscences of Satie, Debussy and others.
The mixing and overall production are superb, and almost twenty years after its original release, this record did not loose its poetical and mysterious atmosphere...
Part of this music was used to illustrate a film by commandant Cousteau. Definitely Zazou's most ethereal album.
