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 describingsmile

ARMES DES OMBRES

I am always thinking about Schindler List music when I am hearing this one

LES SPECIALISTES


5% DE RISQUE


LE CERCLE ROUGE


All the best

I'm glad Music Box Records is publishing Demarsan's work. I've heard Attention les enfants Regardent and L'indiscrétion, superb music outside the films.

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 guess I'm wondering in Pigalle alone.

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...

I made previously at least a brief mention of Pigalle, la Nuit in my post here:
