Verdeaux, Cyrille

CYRILLE VERDEAUX, native of France, was born July 31, 1949 in Paris. In 1963 at the age of 14, he entered the prestigious French National Conservatory of Music in Paris studying composition, harmony, and piano. From 1966 to 1968 he won first place in student composition three successive times. During the student uprisings of 1968 he was dismissed from the Conservatory for his revolutionary activities. He then attended the Nice Conservatory earning a Masters diploma, returning to Paris to form the band Babylone with guitarist Christian Boule.
In 1975 Virgin Records released the first album of Cyrille Verdeaux compositions titled CLEARLIGHT SYMPHONY. Clearlight became the first French progressive rock band signed to a major British record label. Gathering accolades for its unique compositions and keyboard stylings, the music spanned from classical romanticism to lush experimentation. Cyrille Verdeaux and CLEARLIGHT toured England and Europe with the legendary band "GONG".
Clearlight (Cyrille Verdeaux) - Infinite Symphony

Artist: Cyrille Verdeaux
P: 2003

The compositions on "Infinite Symphony" represent the final part of the KUNDALINI OPERA, an extensive work that Cyrille Verdeaux has been working on since a long time and have been released as well under the title "INNER PEACE CONCERTO" within this series. But there he realized them solo on the Kurzweil 2600 synthesizer performing every part to create a modern electronic orchestra. This project consists of seven albums each of them representing one Chakra. On their website it's described like this: "By joining the mystic nature of the Chakras with the poetry of music the opera blends all of the aspects of human existence with blessed nature.towards nirvana". I still did not listen to the rest of the catalog but the few samples I listened to sounded like a mixture of ethnical, electronic, classical and jazz music. Maybe not so much fitting here on this site, nevertheless quite interesting at least for people who are a bit into New Age, meditation and yoga.
This record here which can be listened to without knowing Verdeaux's other work is subdivided into six movements. For maximal enjoyment it should be listened to in one piece of course. Although being mainly keyboard orientated numerous guest musicians like GONG soloist Didier Malherbe, Trevor Lloyd or Cory Wright to name just a few contribute to the sound on multiple instruments. The final result is a unique piece of progressive music that should apply to anyone loving classical AND jazz AND rock music. In addition this record is a part of the legacy Shaun Guerin (passed away July 2003) left to us by adding a touch of Genesis with his voice and playing the drums.

Artist: Cyrille Verdeaux
P: 2001
This CD is the seventh chakra (Sahasrara) of Cyrille Verdeaux's Kundalini Opera series. Wood, wind, water cascade with nature to create a tapestry in this soothing pastiche. Piano, strings and echo combine to create an inner healing and therapeutic dimension. A scientific experiment utilizing the electroencephalogram (EEG) demonstrated increased alpha brain wave activity whilst listening to this music, creating an increased sense of well being and relaxation. The sounds used by the composer are structured to quiet transient brainwaves of the listener, counteracting the effects of stress and tension. Nocturnes Digitales is created to help the listener reharmonize his/her own energetic biorhythms and resynchronize the patterns of DNA. The resulting combination of sound, texture and melody developed produces an optimal sonic environment for massage, bodywork, meditation and yoga. These qualities make this an excellent tool for professional massage therapists and bodyworkers. Nocturnes Digitales corresponds to the color orange, the auric color for family, procreation and sexuality. Other attributes for orange: sensuality, passion, vitality, family orientation, tolerance and optimism.
