France's I:Cube (Nicolas Chaix) delivers a live set during the StarBall festival in June 2005 at the Planetarium de La Villette in Paris. Versatile now brings to your starving ears this mesmerizing live performance and invites you to jump into I:Cube's Playmobile spaceship. In this performance, he returns to his first love, with influences from ambient masters (Biosphere, Future Sound of London and Detroit Escalator). In an effort to travel new roads, escape the conventionalism of the electronic music landscape and free us from the Diktat of dark and martial electro, I:Cube's mind mingles with some of his early references such as Philip K. Dick and Ray Bradbury, childhood memories such as L'avenir du Futur, an '80s French TV show with a lethal soundtrack extracted from Tangerine Dream's "Rubycon." During this 55-minute trip, Live at the Planetarium proposes a subtle encounter of concrete music, dub and electronica, skillfully suppressing the frontiers between these styles to achieve a musical supernova. After a first ambient track, I:Cube slides into timeless deep house that leads into dreamy or dubby electronica and Futurist lullabies. After his album 3, Cube invites us into his parallel and psychedelic vision of modern music. A dense and passionate universe colonized by KLF's "space" and Maurizio's tracks, a celebration of the improbable encounter of King Tubby and Philip Glass. This is the album HAL, Space Odyssey 2001's mega-computer, would have dreamed to compose.
