Ever since my college music days some 40+ years ago I have been enamored with musique electronique. Like many musicologists I consider French-born composer, Edgard Varese the Father of Electronic Music. Frank Zappa, Varese’s protegé characterized him best, “The present day composer refuses to die.”
If you study the six degrees of separation between musique electronique, Varese, and Zappa you will juxtapose the French composer Eric Mouquet, founder of the pioneering electro-ethno-ambient band, Deep Forest.
There is peace to experience in the journey through the light and trees in the deep forests of our world. Eric Mouquet navigates those experiences in his travels, treating our senses to those natural settings.
The latest Deep Forest recording, evo devo is an earthly treasure. Mouquet revisits the sounds he and Michel Sanchez first recorded on Deep Forest in 1992 (now out of print). Those are some of the most amazing sonic textures I have ever absorbed. The remixes of some of those original tracks on this album made me smile to hear them once more.
Deep Forest recently held a Pledge Music project which I missed, but I was able to order an autographed copy of evo devo, from the Web page today.
Allow yourself to experience Deep Forest, connecting your spirit with the nature and our world.
