This is Toulouse-to-Berlin transplant Sam Rouanet's first full-length release for Persona Records. Continuing in the path of recent releases such as Touane's Awake and Stewart Walker's Grounded in Existence, this is an album of iconoclastic electronica which balances production skills and musicality to create sounds with timeless appeal. Based on a lifetime of film and music appreciation, and the desire to create the perfect soundtrack for his own internal movie, Sam sat down with his guitars and synthesizers and got to work. Influences range far and wide here, from Tortoise to Brian Eno on the popular music side, and from Bernard Herrmann, Lalo Schifrin, and Jonathan Goldsmith on the film-scoring side. And though the album was assembled digitally, all acoustic instruments were played live, either by Sam himself, or by his friends (including Rob Mazurek on trumpet) and family (his father Jacques Rouanet on Rhodes). As a result, the album combines the moods and production techniques not only from recent electronica but also the warmth of '60s and '70s-era jazz and easy listening.
