Carlos Cipa has an edge over so many neoclassical projects which have been broadly influenced by repetitive and minimalist American styles: like instrumental pop music, to say nothing of jazz fusion, the presence of instrumental sounds other than keyboards; and he has added some flavour to so many tracks, in the same way that a brilliant sauce can liven up an apparently tasteless dish. This record will take you on a journey through a world of rather muted sounds, which alternates refreshingly between great, hypnotic statements of melancholia, and somewhat briefer interludes (Fanfare, or the stunning Awbsmi), which seem to capture the ephemeral impressions of city life, as if the spirit of the town was in dialogue with an imaginary world beyond, a world under construction, made of dreams and dreamed escapes. These interludes always form a magnificent prelude to the great meditations which follow, and which can be jumping off points for mental meanderings (like Slide, where the pianist-composer from Munich tries daring new sonic experiments). The three final tracks are more developed, and the closing track, Paon [peacock] has nothing wild about it at all: the jazzy trumpet and droning, percussive piano bass , is an attempt at a reconciliation of two worlds. It conjures up an image of the town at the end of the night, the dawn opening up, freeing itself, casting off the rags of the night before. Have you seen the stunning film by Christoph Hochhäusler (also a Munich native) from 2010, Unter dir, die Stadt? These Retronyms by Carlos Cipa could form a perfect new soundtrack for it, ten years later. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Album Description

Carlos Cipa has an edge over so many neoclassical projects which have been broadly influenced by repetitive and minimalist American styles: like instrumental pop music, to say nothing of jazz fusion, the presence of instrumental sounds other than keyboards; and he has added some flavour to so many tracks, in the same way that a brilliant sauce can liven up an apparently tasteless dish.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim: The Big Beat Story

As Keith Flint, Prodigy’s lead singer, has just passed away, Qobuz looks back on the history of the big beat, an intense movement that blew up musical boundaries, led by three major players: The Prodigy, the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim.

Steve Reich, The Minimal Animal

He is one of the pioneers of minimalist music. But he is also one of the most-played contemporary composers. At 80, Steve Reich is a kind of untouchable guru who still exerts a powerful influence over musicians of many genres, even techno. His personal evolution; his relationship to jazz or world music; the transmission of his works down the generations: the straight-talking New Yorker tells all.
