Les Secrets de Morphée
Here we are now with Les Secrets de Morphée, in a world of
dreams and night filled by Les ielles
(small savage fairies). This short album (5 tracks, 21 minutes) sounds like
Llewella, but it is more
quiet... Now merry (Dilune), grave, worrying and finely-shaded
(Untha), melancholic (Ethiel),
indeed solemn and majectic (Lyn'), and at the end, a mix of
unequalled elegance and beauty (Reflets d'Enulid).
A must for this extraordinary first solo album, the voice fluctuating
between the Lisa Gerrard's solemnity and the Elisabeth
Frazer's enchanting singing. But it's an own style. And I wouldn't forget
Anastasia, with his violin. Magnificient and
grandiose. One last thing: the hardback record sleeve, is designed and
drawn by the musicians.
Les ielles is part of a new project of Prikosnovénie, a
collection of musical miniatures, in order to promote new
and original musics, on a short audio aid (nearly 20 minutes) and with a
nice price (30 FF, nearly $5). A fine initiative
from this French label, recognizable by a studied musical production and
a meticulous design.
