Gauthier, Patrick - Clinamens
14-Arcangelo ARC 1168
Pianist Patrick Gauthier will forever be associated with his wonderful work with Heldon, Magma and Weidorje.
This new, Japanese-only release is simultaneously very classically inspired, as well as very Magma inspired. Himiko and Antoine Paganotti are the vocalists throughout (sometimes wordlessly and sometimes en Francais), while Isabelle Carpentier sings on two tracks, Bernard Paganotti plays bass on one track and Patrick performs on pianos, and contributed all compositions and vocal arrangements.
Imagine the mellow, piano and vocal only sections of Magma with a bit more classical air, and that's pretty much the sound here!
