All of your favorites, in one place.
In the world of sound library and production music French Avant-garde composer Patrice Sciortino is both unique and universal. His astounding late 1960s and early 1970s recordings for the prestigious Musique Pour L’Image and PSI labels receive their first serious reissue and reappraisal here. Cellos growl and twist with an air evocative of Bernard Hermann, choirs hiss and howl like Alessandro Alessandroni’s ‘I Cantori Moderni’ and the whole thing is as dexterous and playful as Ennio Morricone at his very best. But really Sciortino is his own beast, percussive and jarring one moment, soothing yet unsettling the next.
Reissued for the very first time is his landmark 1970 LP “Chronoradial” plus a swathe of beautiful yet confronting (and incredibly rare) late 1960s French library cuts.
Superbly remastered from the original tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos from the composer’s own collection.
