(MSQ) is a personal journey by it’s creator
Grégoire Marty (aka Dandy Teru) delving into his
love of original movie soundtracks and various
composers. Crafting a sonic and aural odyssey for a
movie that exists only in his mind and imagination.
Similar to his other projects such as his debut album Adventures
as Dandy Teru or the Wonderland EP as MSQ, this new opus was
roughly composed in a very short time, in about a week or so while
also working on collaborations and releases with other artists. The
busy schedule and loads of studio time provided the necessary
inspiration and state of mind to construct the LP properly.
The end goal was to pay tribute to the compositions of various
soundtracks of both old and more recent movies, and to show
the producer's love for composers such as Umiliani, Piccioni,
Goraguer, Legrand, Cliff Martinez, H.Zimmer, Danny Elfman,
and Alexandre Desplats to name a few. With sci-fi cinema as the
main foundation, and using his fascination for astronomy along
with personal existential queries about life's origins, one's
purpose and our place and scale in the universe as building
blocks, a story emerges sketched out of rough compositions and
surreal mindscapes.
In his own words: "Technically, I wanted it to sound dusty and
ethereal. I like to say that I try to make MSQ's sound something
in between Madlib and Portishead signatures...
Full Moon Wizard is the story of the creation of a world from the
largest scale of its complexity to its smallest. It's a route from
the beginning of something we don't have the knowledge and
skills to understand (yet) to things we are more familiar with
today, trying to make the connections between the dots along the
whole journey. Definitely an album for nightowls, for mood music
and soundtrack lovers.”
I like it, reminds me of other projects like 40winks in this vibe, but
more jazzy. But it's more like vibes, rather than real tracks from
start to end... Perfect midnight soundtrack. and the artwork is nice
too. -Lefto
