Igor Wakhevitch - Let's Start
Igor Wakhevitch
Let's Start
LP | 1979 | EU | Reissue (Fauni Gena)
20,99 €*
Release:1979 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Originally released in 1979, Wakhevitch's last album before definitely settling down in Auroville (India) was his most meditative and relaxed effort to date. Fruit of his 1978 stay in Israel invited by the "Mishkenot Sha’ananim" Foundation, the album was again completely dominated by the composer's keyboards - hypnotic, majestic, enchanting and delicate: from the sweeping synths and fractured vocal loops of the title track to the fragility of Taddy's Fruit Garden, the lyrical spaciness of Eriador or the otherwordly impressionism of Taddy's Dream : Ramallah's Road. A masterful closing statement by this french master and a must for anyone into meditative keyboard music in the vein of Terry Riley, Deuter, JD Emmanuel or Peter Michael Hamel, to name a few.
Igor Wakhevitch - Les Fous D'or
Igor Wakhevitch
Les Fous D'or
LP | 1975 | EU | Reissue (Fauni Gena)
20,99 €*
Release:1975 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Released by Pathe Marconi in 1975 and housed in a fantastic surrealist cover designed by his father, russian painter/art director Georges Wakhevitch, this album marks the debut of Wakhevitch's long-standing collaboration with american dancer/choreographer Carolyn Carlson. It also shows the composer's progression into a more esoteric and lyrical grounds: a departure from the violence of his first three albums into quieter yet equally dark and mysterious regions. Divided in two sides (called "CORNERSTONE"/"LES FOUS D'OR") the whole record oozes a dreamy, mysterious, surrealist atmosphere enhaced by the spoken word introductions that open a series of mesmerising electronic pieces which range from the gentle to the hypnotic. Animal sounds, ritual horns, wordless vocals and assorted metal banging and scrapping add to the whole mix for a landmark sound that will evolve in future albums. Six different pieces that take off where Hathors' 'Aurore' left before moving into a crazy and d! isjointed landscape that echoes the crazyness of Docteur Faust yet in a subtle, stranger, more warped way.
Igor Wakhevitch - Nagual
Igor Wakhevitch
Nagual
LP | 1977 | EU | Reissue (Fauni Gena)
20,99 €*
Release:1977 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Originally released in 1977, this was (once again) a product of the fruitful association between Wakhevitch and american dancer/choreographer Carolyn Carlson. Compiling some of the pieces specially written for Carlson's "This, that and the other" (created for the Groupe de recherche Théâtrale de l'Opéra de Paris), the album follows the otherwordly steps of it's predecessor ("Les Fous D'or") in a more calm, relaxed, almost nocturnal way. Inspired by Carlos Castaneda's writings, Nagual is another mysterious and intriguing statement of musical esoterica: a collection of twelve musical vignettes covering a whole range of styles, from majestic electronic pieces to echo-drenched concrete-like sketches via impressionistic piano compositions. A bewitching musical journey, built around Wakhevitch's keys where electronics give way to more acoustic sonorities (piano, harp) for a highly-charged magical sound. A very special record !!!
