WeMe033 BIC001 Red Vinyl !
Brand new chapter in the saga of the legendary french composer Francois de Roubaix: built from home recording sessions with puppet master and co-composer Bernard Maitre (involving their unique collection of crypto-instruments collected from all over the globe), this first-time ever release of soundtrack for children puppet show “Les Onix” definitely might be ranked as one of the most unusually intimate and unfettered sonic items ever produced by Francois de Roubaix. From rubber duck marching brass bands to mutant swinging pans, expect classy miniatures and raw bruitist soundscapes, hawaian interlude or proto-funky chase featuring cracked up ocarinas, obsessive rattles, vintage drum machines and a consistent amount of analog synths, all revealing a unique and playfull sense of accuracy in their use. Exclusive and previously unreleased material, digitalised from original master tapes, wrapped in deluxe package with full booklet designed, photos and detailed liner notes (english & french). Artwork & Layout by Jean-Philippe Bretin A WeMe rds and Biceps rds co-release.
