RIP GĂ©rard Hourbette, age 64. No English-language obits as yet I don't think.

Does anybody remember laughter? *audience screams* (Matt #2), Monday, 7 May 2018 08:57 (two years ago) link

That's a shame. I guess that means the band is finished now?

From their Wikipedia page: "The band has announced Monique Hourbette-Vialadieu will replace him as artistic director of the studios." So maybe there'll still be a live version accompanying films, dance performances etc? Guess the music's all there and it's not like it requires especially distinctive playing styles.

eight months pass...

Been wanting to hear Les Espaces Inquiets for years because I heard an amazing clip from "ceremonie" and it is an incredible track, easily the highlight of the album and I'd be surprised if they had many that are much better than this. The rest is good but I don't have much to say about it.

Zaboitzeff solo stuff

I haven't listened to enough of the band to know which parts are coming from who but I often suspect Zaboitzeff is responsible for a lot of my favorite parts.
