Marc-Henri Arfeux - Blossom

Artist: Marc-Henri Arfeux
P: 2010
Taking a more studious, academically-grounded approach to synthesis than some of the more DIY-oriented releases on Rural Faune's Synth Series, Blossom is an album by French composer, novellist and poet Marc-Henri Arfeux. Across six pieces, Arfeux employs a host of both analogue and digital synthesizers, fashioning soundscapes that are as indebted to early electronic pioneers as they are later synth gurus such as Klaus Schulze and Jean-Michel Jarre. At times there are parallels to be with contemporaries such as Oneohtrix Point Never (a fellow contributor to the Rural Faune Synth Series), but there's also a recurrent emphasis on the more new-age inspired aspects of synthesizer music, with a track like 'Ama No Sode' inviting comparisons with Popol Vuh's most strictly electronic works, or Vangelis's keyboard meanderings. 'Fragment 22' only confirms this, weaving together atmospheric synth-string drones and chant-like female vocals. At the more experimental end of Arfeux's output you'll hear the likes of 'Fragment 17', which feature far heavier processing, revealing the hand of computer-based edits and plug-in tampering. All this makes Blossom one of the more technical and thorough entries into the Synth Series, but there's enough of a grounding in gaudy, dream-like weirdness to ensure that essential spirit of Rural Faune's sub-label is preserved.

Marc-Henri Arfeux - Loire Abstraction

Artist: Marc-Henri Arfeux
P: 2011
Since the XVIth century, the river Loire has always been a poetic emblem in French culture and arts, for the beauty of its slow waters and landscapes. In the second part of the XXth century, the great painter Olivier Debré who lived on its banks often refered in his subtle abstract way to its moving lights and colours along seasons and hours. This album expresses my own tribute to Olivier Debré and his Loire paintings I admire deeply, in the form of a symphonic poem for synthesizers and various electronic devices, divided into seven parts. Each one has a title Olivier Debré could have chosen and conveys into music an imaginary Loire vision he could have painted. Has the most feminine of the French rivers, music is a constant metamorphosis of miraculous unique instants in progress.

P: 2009
Sometimes very experimentell, Arfeux takes us into his own soundcosmos full of synthesizersounds, that sound like on a spacetravel.
