Philip Glass' score for Godfrey Reggio's 1983 film Koyaanisqatsi comes from one of his most fertile creative periods, soon after Satyagraha and about five years after Einstein on the Beach, and it contains some of his most immediately appealing music. For listeners who are not likely to wade into one of his huge operas, Koyaanisqatsi's manageable dimensions make it an ideal introduction to Glass' work (if there is in fact anyone out there who has not yet been introduced to it) because many of its sections are so memorably distinctive. The opening, with a broadly amplified very low bass intoning the film's title (which means "life out of balance" in Hopi) while the orchestra weaves an apocalyptically menacing web is one of Glass' most unforgettable inventions. The ululating chorus of mixed voices, "Vessels," at first unaccompanied, and then joined by the throbbing of instruments, is a marvel of open-throated lyricism that should dispel any stereotypical misconceptions of Glass as a rigidly mechanistic technician. The 1983 soundtrack includes about 46 minutes of music, a little more than half the length of the film. The strongest tracks are included, and while the listener with a passion for completeness may want to seek out the complete soundtrack, released for the first time in 2009, there is plenty here to savor. Glass' ensemble, as always, performs with mind-boggling discipline and soulful commitment, and because of the darkly pessimistic tone of the film, with a stark and sobering gravity. His use of a large ensemble of orchestral instruments, as well as the Western Wind Vocal Ensemble, along with electronic instruments, allows him a wide palette, ranging from the warm of human voices to the high-tech pulsing of synthesizers. Careful engineering is integral to Glass' compositional process, so the CD's sound is certainly his own best realization of his artistic vision.

Les Grands Angles...
Un nouveau monde entre électro et classique

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Depuis quelques années, tous ces noms en vogue ont été regroupés sous la vaste et imprécise étiquette “néoclassique”. A dire vrai, cette “scène” ressemble plutôt à une bande hétéroclite d’artistes fureteurs qui mêlent instruments classiques et production électronique – avec une connexion assumée aux pionniers du minimalisme américain – régalant les sens et ouvrant des perspectives des deux côtés de leur spectre musical.

Danny Elfman en dix albums

Entre féerie et humour déjanté, grandiose et douceur bienveillante, Danny Elfman a bâti en près de quarante ans un style très personnel et bigarré, qu’il distille dans des productions hollywoodiennes éclectiques, signées notamment Tim Burton ou Gus Van Sant. À l’occasion d’un week-end qui lui est consacré à la Philharmonie de Paris, retour sur dix albums essentiels de sa discographie.
