LA PLANETE SAUVAGE OST
this is a Classic 1973 space-age pop soundtrack from the long-time Serge Gainsbourg collaborator, to the bizarre and beautiful cannes award-winning film.
Towering blue-skinned figures, tiny humanoids in the midst of revolt, and drug induced Tantric sex transport viewers to a truly magical setting. Composer Alain Goraguer creates an equally hypnotic score from a palette of effects-laden guitars, flutes, Fender Rhodes and strings. suggestive of the psychedelic era, Moody vignettes flow together in tense, slow-paced funk rhythms and Baroque textures. It comes as no surprise that ‘La Planète Sauvage’ has been cited as an influence on contemporary artists such as Air, J Dilla and Madlib. Gorgeous, interplanetary soundscapes resemble the surreal meeting point between Pink Floyd’s ‘Obscured by Clouds’ and Broadcast’s ‘Future Crayon’. This long out-of-print vinyl release features the original soundtrack recording and newly designed artwork. Recommended for fans of Ennio Morricone, Basil Kirchin and David Axelrod.
