New Sebastien Tellier Release Coming Soon
The French composer Sebastien Tellier is back with a beautiful surprise-album Confection on the Record Makers label. Apart from one song, Confection (to be released November 8, 2013) is an entirely instrumental piece that Sebastien conceived like a motion picture score. Several romantic musical themes are showcased in different versions, orchestral or acoustic. Their sequence brings the listener on a succession of subtle climaxes, creating powerful emotions and leaving room for fantasized images. The recording session was definitely old-school, as decided by the maestro.
The team which helped Tellier create his cult classic song “La Ritournelle” 7 years ago, was reunited for the occasion: Tony Allen of Fela fame, on drums, Rob the keyboardist for Phoenix; Emmanuel d’Orlando on string arrangements and Philippe Zdar mixed the record. The latter is also responsible for mixing albums for Phoenix, Cat Power, Beastie Boys, or Kindness and part of Cassius. The album artwork and “L’amour naissant” video are from Jean-Baptiste Mondino. Confection is an album as close as possible to Tellier’s soul, a testimony of his deep musical skills. It showcases his outstanding composer talent as rarely before, reminiscent of his early albums such as L’incroyable vérité or Politics. Confection is a love letter for a film un-filmed!
