This is music you really have to discover together with the film. Label: www. Your Name:. The first track, "Intro", shows an idea of ambient music far more complex than many of his colleagues: while it starts as a canonical ambient track based on a drone, it evolves by accumulation until even a melodic line could be heard in the development of the sound layers.
When it seems that the release could continue along this framework, "Chapitre I" is based on church's chant it's the Goldberg Variations sung by Les Petits Sergio Mendes Brasileiro du Mont-Royal, but Bach music is religious which continues in "Chapitre II" until the reverb applied to this chant announces the the return of a drone introducing the return of masses of drone, some of which are even noisy.
Then, "Chapitre III" begins a series of tracks, based on dynamics, which are at the threshold of audibility and "Chapitre IV" is constructed as a series of sonic events isolated by seconds of silence. Underlining the narrative framework of this release, "Chapitre V" and "Chapitre VI" feature a short return of the chant of "Chapitre I" as one of the layers emerging from the resulting drone. A track not included in the original soundtrack, "Chapitre N", closes this release with an evolving synth drone.
Impressively multifaceted, it's a release which confirms the status of its author as one most interesting ambient composer around. Highly recommended. It took me Rosa Yemen Rosa Yemen time to find out this was actually a re-release. Fun fact: the original release still seems to be for sale from Casino Luxembourg. The result is quite different from most earlier Murcof releases.
Much, much darker and more suspenseful than you would have expected based on his earlier work. The combination with the mostly electronic soundscapes is downright chilling. Which is why Glacial Movements is the designated label for this fascinating re- release! So praise to the label for re-releasing this album and making it available again on CD and digital download! This particular edition features a bonus track available with the download, Chapitre N, which was especially composed for this Glacial Movements release.

The art of Murcof Lost In Time is destined to solitude Murcof Lost In Time the crushing and all-empowering emptiness that desert creates.

Perhaps Murcof has deliberately chosen this renowned example of classic variation, written by Bach for harpsichord and played a capella here by the mentioned choir, because of the multiple shapes it can take and the images it can inspire.
