NCL - "An Audio Movie: Les Grans Saules"
(Gazul/Musea Recoreds 2002, ETCD38/GA8656.AR)
From Aural Innovations #21 (October 2002)
A self proclaimed "Audio Movie" by NLC, I am not sure what make of it. For one, it's in French (and as you may gather by that statement this is a problem - I don't know French), so I can't really delve into it and give away any plot clues or anything. There are 25 tracks, usually a couple of minutes each, with minor key piano/violin bits giving way to short spoken bits with some background sound effects (y'know, birds, cars, etc). As a listening experience it's ok and all, but I can't imagine going back to it over and over again. I wish Musea would include information about the bands when they send these CD's. I might get into more if I knew something about it. And trying to found information at their web site is an effort in futility.
