Sauvanet, Paul

Paul Sauvanet was born in the south of France in 1950. He received his formal music education at the Conservatory of Music in Bordeaux and Paris, training as a concert pianist and classical percussion-ist. He won prizes at both schools for counterpoint, and took first prize at Bordeaux for musical composition and harmony. Although this background suggests he might be most comfortable with the European classical tradition, in truth he is inspired equally by all of the music that he loves: baroque, classical, romantic, impressionist, world music, and American jazz.

He also has a taste and talent for contemporary electronic music. He first gained an interest in the field when he heard the music of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream in the 1970s, and began using synthesizers during his tenure then as professor at the Conservatory of Music in Aix-en-Provence. Since 1991 he has headed the electronic music department at the Dordogne Ecole Nationale de Musique

Paul Sauvanet - Eleusis

Artist: Paul Sauvanet
P: 1992
Deep, reposeful and meditative sounds. This album, rather a few selections from this CD were first aired on the nationally syndicated program, "Hearts of Space". This very intriquing work as Eleusis is a little more electronic/ambient/drifting in nature than his later, more consistently symphonic sounding Hearts Of Space works. The title track "Eleusis" is a strong, mid-tempo electronic work unlike anything I've heard on a Sauvanet CD previously. "Tropic" is tropically atmospheric. "Omen," "Dunes" and "Bercaua de Soie" are thematic drifters in the vein of Mark Isham's VAPOR DRAWINGS or Brian Eno's THURSDAY AFTERNOON, but with Sauvanet's signature sound.
