“It all started when Apollo Noir, Tigersushi’s latest signing
came to me with a split 12” he wanted to release, including
his own track “Inspiring Images & Visual Power. Chosen
With Love & Dedication” and Glass’ “Heart”. I loved the tunes
but wasn’t convinced that releasing a 12inch for those 2
songs only was relevant, so I proposed we extend this split
EP to a full French Ambient compilation and we all got
excited by the idea. There’s never been one although there’s
an undeniable interest in that genre from a broad spectrum
of French musicians. A few days later, me, Apollo Noir and
Charlotte (Tigersushi’s lieutenant in chief) compiled a short
list of names we were interested in and within just a few
weeks we put together this compilation. Amazingly, 95% of
the artists we contacted agreed to participate.
Another surprise is how those 18 tunes come together in
such a homogenous way, this stroke me the first time I
listened to the whole record. Maybe it’s a result of the
fascination for old and new analog machines shared by most
of the musicians featured here. Maybe it has to do with a
long French lineage of experimental electronic music (Pierre
Schaeffer, Pierre Henry, Jean Michel Jarre, and all the lesser
known synth library music and score composers...).
Anyway we couldn’t be happier with the result and we’re
already excited to work on the second chapter.” Joakim
