Francois De Roubaix

l'antarctique et autres seances electroniques rue de courcelles

Weme Records

Released: 7th December 2009 | 11 track leftfield/idm album
French soundtrack composer and autodidact Francois de Roubaix (1939-1975) was one of the first to use (frequency) modulators (Moog, Korg) on an 8 tracks home studio. He died too soon in a diving accident, nevertheless not unknown for his melodic works mixing electronic and acoustic: he has immortalised a number of French classical movies in the sixties and seventies, amongst others l'Homme Orchestre, Dernier Domicile Connu, les Aventuriers and the famous animation series Chapi Chapo.Francois de Roubaix' oeuvre has been sampled by multiple producers. This release devotes on a double vinyl a posthumous work 'l'Antarctique', composed after an order by the Commander Cousteau for one of his documentaries. This work has been taken very seriously by the diving fan that Francois de Roubaix was. The Commander finally refused the electronic composition,probably because too avant-garde for its time, so it has remained unknown for a long time and this is the first time it is edited in vinyl. On the second -completely eclectic -record you'll find different tasty style-exercises that show to what extend Francois de Roubaix manipulated the modulators with ingenuity.
