Jean-Pierre Saccomani - "Music For Time"
(MCP Productions 2002, MCP2202)
From Aural Innovations #20 (July 2002)
Jean-Pierre Saccomani is a French solo music performer and this CD was recorded in Paris in 2000-2001 and is a series of 6 music soundscapes. "Cold Scene" starts off very haunting and builds up and then suddenly lets flow a free peaceful atmosphere that then drones on. Pretty spooky. I am guessing the music is mainly composed on synthesizers and uses samplers but there are no details.
When I hear the CD I really feel like I am listening to a soundtrack to a movie but not your ordinary Hollywood movie. Something scary, something creepy, that gets under your skin and moves you emotionally, from the happy to the scared to the unknown. That's how I hear it... you decide...
