IMHO Eric Demarsan is quite underrated among film score fans. I really like his orchestral writing and combination of jazz elements with orchestra. I am curious what are your favorite film scores by Eric Demarsan.
And here are few his composition because hearing is always better than describing
ARMES DES OMBRES
I am always thinking about Schindler List music when I am hearing this one
Has anybody heard Pigalle, La Nuit? It's about a non-event as possibly could be.
If Shepp followers knew about it, he is serious business in jazz circles. His playing is a brilliant, smouldering lava flow of a sound, that oozes improvisation. It's intoxicating and Demarsan supports him in his characteristic style with the orchestra.
... I can not understand why it still is available if it only had a 500 run and it has been discounted to top it off! It must be unlimited?
I admit having liked my previous purchases of Eric Demarsan (Le cercle rouge, L'humeur vagabonde, L'armée des ombres etc.) but I am quite sure that Pigalle, la Nuit is my favorite score that I know by the composer. Wonderful thick atmosphere, dark mood, memorable themes and sparse, yet very effective arrangements crowned by the great sax parts make me play this CD very regularly - especially in the evening/night time. Dare I say--the music captures the essence of the darkness, drama and suspense to the extent it transports the listener to another time and place -- at least myself!
I'm very glad to see someone else raising the topic of this score and I would like to urge everyone to give it a try. Yet I'm somehow sure that everyone else will continue ignoring this great score anyway...
