François Élie Roulin is the only French composer produced by Brian Eno on his Opal label, about whom Brian was prompted to say: François Élie Roulin is one of the pioneering new sound-painters. His work is surprising and innovative and points towards new musical territories. In 1990, his groundbreaking "Disque Rouge" was well received by the public and critics alike. In 1993, Initial Number pushed the envelope further, merging electronic and acoustic instruments with soaring soprano voices. In 1998, his third album Spinning Skies sounded like a symphony riddled with strange harmonies and rhythms, not unlike a Philip K. Dick book.
Parade is a sparkling showcase for François Élie Roulins eclectic talent. Here we find ourselves at the heart of a virtual soundtrack, traveling through his multi-faceted brain.
Composer François Élie Roulin is secretly behind much of the current French audio landscape, having produced over a hundred soundtracks for commercials, some of which received awards at Cannes Gold Lions Festival de la Pub. He has also played a large part in composing for the image industry: Film scores, TV station ID themes, music for credits, documentaries and commercials, and also for stage and film. His work for children combines richness with simplicity, and he has produced dozens of talking books for Disney, as well as a collection for Ades along with Danielle Fournier, and cartoons with Little King Macius (the serie). His original music was even used by the French Gymnastic Team at the recent Olympic Games.
He recently composed the Orchestral score for the motion picture " Little king Macius".
ALIEN ROBOTS ORCHESTRA
ALIEN ROBOTS ORCHESTRA
is the new project from French composer Francois Elie Roulin and English singer and songwriter Joanna Swan.
It is a concept album (with a twinkle in its eye), about alien robots infiltrating Europe in the 1970’s and discovering a taste for the flamboyant music of the period.
Taking 70's rock as the initial inspiration and infusing a unique futuristic flavour, the album is a superbly played and soulful evocation of memorable pop songs that will have you humming along before you have even heard them!!
The CD is Distributed by Harmonia Mundi.
