(f)light - Jérôme chassagnard
Artist: Jérôme chassagnard
Release: june 2008
Label: hymen records
With the long player “(F)light” Jérôme chassagnard; member of the fantastic French project “ab ovo “; represents us his first solo album. Kicking off with the track “Haze” you will quickly let drop oneself into this deep album. Completely different to the fantastic releases of “ab ovo” Jérôme plays with different musical genres without loosing his own musical fingerprint. Drum and Bass, Pop sounds, Ambient and Ethnic sounds meshed together to a wonderful sound experience. The sound of “(F)light” is kind of compressed, very intense and clear. Its like someone puts together a broken mirror to a new perfect work of art. You can see the breaking edges but the new mirror is more beautiful and clearer than the ones that is fallen to the floor. This interpretations of musical genres without caring too much about musical drawers is fascinating and liberating. Albums like these will help undecided people to get in touch with experimental music. Inviting people by offering known music structures in anew light and a very personal interpretation are path breaking. Not to forget to advise you to listen to the tracks “circle of memories” and “the fan” with the outstanding collaborations of flaque and guillaume eluerd.
(F)light is a milestone not more not less... and a beautiful bewitching album!
