Eau, Mer, Profondeur


You are weightless in a coral jungle gym, watching a family of seahorses float by in order of height. Little bubbles are floating upward out of your oxygen tank... Norm at Lunar Atrium has the absolute best collection of this kind of music -- scores and scores of unknown 70s underwater soundtracks improvised by tight turtleneck-wearing Italian guys with roomfuls of percussion instruments and tone generators. This album, by A.R. Luciani, was a birthday present last summer -- thanks Norm!

  4. Nice excerpt. The inspiration for this comes from French classical composer Claude Debussy, I guess. Half of his 3 hour opera Pelléas et Mélisande (1902) is about water, the other half about light, the 2 elements intricately mixed along the opera.

  6. Here's the rest of side 2. The first side is very boring -- you don't need it.
