POINTE DU LAC POINTE DU LAC LP

 

Having successfully reissued french cult prog LP "Pole'' by Besombes and Rizet, Gonzaï Records now pursues its exploration of kosmische and repetitive music with the vinyl release of Pointe Du Lac, initially brought out digitally in October, 2014.

Pointe Du Lac is a french trip to Kosmische Land oscillating between the German autobahn of Kraftwerk and one of the most romantic Parisian subway stations, which gave its name to the projet lead by Julien Lheuillier.

"When they opened this station approximately three years ago says Julien, I said to myself that the name of the station opened an imagination, big deserted spaces.

I wanted the music to be the reflect (dreamlike and contrasted) of that vision. We can hear imaginary lakes and subways there, old and brand new synthesizers.

That 8 tracks LP represents a kind of hallucinated vision of a route towards the Point of the Lake station, but a station which doesn't exist, or which would be somewhere in the cosmos ».

Following the lead of the contemporary french avant-garde (Chassol, Bajram Bili, Jonathan Fitoussi) and sometimes sounding like an echo to Air's Virgin Suicides'', Pointe du Lac is one of the most beautiful instrumental records recently heard.

Influences: Neu !, Harmonia, Cluster, Arvo Pärt, Terry Riley, Kraftwerk « The inspiration behind the eight album pièces by Pointe Du Lac might have been inspired by Krautrock and other German electronic music, but it has definitely killed the Buddha and succeeded in express feelings with its own musical language.

» (Harald Grosskopf from Wallenstein, Ash Ra Temple, Klaus Schulze)
