Bernard Fevre - Orbit Ceremony 77
« on: February 12, 2020, 12:17:41 AM »

Some reviews:

"An album of library music that was never even released, and was thought lost to the ages. Until a fortunate discovery of the original tapes that is!"

"By now, the 70s and all itís synthetic contents are surely well known by the record-collecting community, with more soundtracks and lost tapes from forgotten synthesists turning up now than back then. Itís garnered a lot of a love, with names such as this Bernard Fevre man getting attention from the likes of Rephlex and the Chemical Brothers.
Heís mostly known for his more dance oriented Black Devil Disco Club releases, and despite some dodgy Ďit was acceptable in the 70sí album covers, itís good fun. But this release isnít about fun, or at least, not funky good times fun. Itís a suite of so-called Ďlibrary musicí aka Ďfillerí that features some almost symphonic sequencing and some actually pretty bold synth sounds for the time. Itís not all Vangelis synth strings here, youíve got some rather wild sounds that blur the line between sci-fi SFX and conventional melody or percussion. Theyíre pretty techno, as the start of the 2nd track of side B reinforces, almost sounding Morton Subotnick-y at times. No wonder the Chemical Bros took note.
So yes this does adequately steer clear of enough of the cliches of 70s synth to actually be worthwhile."

"Lost LP from 1977, rebuilt from original tapes, by the creator of BLACK DEVIL DISCO CLUB. The French electronic music pioneer behind Black Devil Disco Club, released three seminal library albums in the seventies: Suspense (1975), Cosmos 2043 (1977) and The Strange World of Bernard Fevre (1977). A fourth album called Orbit Ceremony, produced just a few months after remained in his home studio and never saw the light; sentenced to almost 40 years in the devil's vault. By chance, while working on the re-issues, Bernard Fevre recently found the original lost tapes of Orbit Ceremony, including the multi-tracks, which he remixed and remastered himself. Spacy moogs, weird clavinet, and cosmic analog drum machines: it's all here. The quirky, cosmic library music found on this long-deleted 70′s science-fiction-themed album if full of burbling synths and off-kilter melodies. There's only one man on this planet able to produce such a crazy sound. As soon as you press play you know you've embarked on a special and unique 'back to the future' trip. Don't worry, fasten your seat belt and relax. Captain Fevre is taking care of everything."

It's great, just give it a spin and see by yourself!nX5xmbjA!6WK_diLjKK6by1arCj9jlu323Rt_rFMOMCiCyE3_A3E - flac
