Villeneuve's not dead


Villeneuve, c'est le pseudo de Benoît de Villeneuve, compositeur français touchant aussi bien à la musique de film qu'à l'éléctro-pop, auteur d'un premier essai en 2005 avec l'album First Date. Après des collaborations tant au niveau artistique avec les français M83 et Agoria qu'au niveau cinématographique pour la bande sonore du film Mesrine, Benoît revient avec ce Death Race, ode à la vitesse, ode à l'amour mais surtout ode à la musique, ici théâtralisée à travers une flambée céleste qui du piano fait l'instrument central dans une oraison funèbre qui rivalise d'audace pour déjouer le piège de la Grande Faucheuse.
On flaire le génie et on se délecte d'avance de son deuxième album Dry Marks Of Memory qui est prévu pour janvier 2010.

PS : Quelques connexions synaptiques faites par mon cerveau à l'encontre d'un lien vidéo/artiste tendent à me faire penser que ce clip est un hommage discret à Gilles Villeneuve, ce québécois qui s'est tué au volant de sa F1 à Zolder (Belgique) en 1982.


Villeneuve as known as Benoît de Villeneuve is a french composer dealing with film music and electro-pop who has released a first album in 2005 called First Date. After many collaborations with French artists M83 and Agoria and a great work on Mesrine soundtrack, Benoît is coming back with Death Race, ode to speed, ode to love but mainly ode to music, theatricalized here through a divine flare-up which is giving the piano the leading role in a funeral oration trying to outdo the Death in luck not to discover the hereafter too early.
I have intuition this man is a genious and I am thoroughly looking forward to hear his second album Dry Marks Of Memory which will be released on January of 2010.

P.S. : A few connections in my mind between video and artist's name make me think this video clip is a tribute to Gilles Villeneuve, this Canadian pilot who died in 1982 in a F1 race in Zolder (Belgium).

Waoh, grosse claque.

Le clip pourrait être un court-métrage (m'est-avis que c'est bourré de références), et le son est sublime sublime sublime.

Merci beaucoup.

C'est même entièrement tiré du film THX 1138 de Georges Lucas.
