Fragments De La Nuit, Les
Musique De Nuit
The French ensemble have kept faithful to their trademark style, in which pulsing piano chords set the pace for the string-work woven by the cellist and the three violinists, haunted by female choirs that surface on occasion. MUSIQUE DE NUIT features newly recorded tracks from the early days as well as brand new pieces. Variety is testimony to the band's ability to take Contemporary Classical music beyond its typical standards, by adding to this genre other stylistic references, some common to Post-Rock, Pop or even Metal, and thus bringing together elements that recall the works of composers like STEVE REICH, PHILIPP GLASS or ARVO PART with those of formations such as GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, BALANESCU QUARTET or even the sinister cult-band MAGMA.
