nicholas (nick) hamnett Dear Mr Derrida,
Reasons I don't buy albums:
1.Poor cover art.
2.Can't pronounce the artist's name.
3.Too pricey & like a bad massage, no extras.
4.The blurb doesn't have the word "psychedelic" in it.
5.The artist hasn't suffered, excepting having to share a bedroom.
6.The instruments weren't made from reclaimed material - unlike the music.
7.Too much skill and craft on display and no good postmodern reason for it.
8.I'm dead - and it's vinyl.
This I did buy! Because I do love this Frenchness.

isolar Just heard this track on Gilles Peterson. Just my kind of thing. Skimmed through a few other tracks and... Im sold. OK shipping from Canada but this totally sounds worth it! Favorite track: Béton et Ferraille.

about

Cinephonic was founded in 2018 by composer / pianist / vibraphonist Pierre Chrétien, as an outlet for the new cinematic tunes he had been quietly writing when he wasn't busy leading larger groups such as The Souljazz Orchestra, Atlantis Jazz Ensemble and Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays.

In the fall of 2020, he releases "Les Paradis artificiels", his first full-length album under the Cinephonic moniker, on which he collaborates with heavyweight hip-hop drummer Robert Biesewig (Wu-Tang Clan, Havoc, Alchemist) and versatile percussionist Marielle Rivard (The Souljazz Orchestra, Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays), while performing all other parts himself on mellotron, piano and vibraphone.

Drawing inspiration from classic French film and library music, Chrétien expands on the sound with elements of orchestral jazz, cinematic soul, and instrumental hip-hop, creating a rich, evocative, and complex soundscape that juxtaposes intricate compositions with dark funk backbeats - a kind of epic soundtrack for a film that never existed.
