@ Laurent78:

I have a 1:50 track of ENQUÊTEURS ASSOCIÉS on a compilation: Les plus belles musiques de films de François de Roubaix, vol. 2 (track 10, Hortensia label)

Is that possibly one of the two tracks on the Universal France/EMARCY compilation?

Sorry for my late answer due to the fact I was away for a few days and couldn't log on. I confirm that the version you mean (also available on a double EMI Odéon anthology) is different from the one featured on this LP.

Regarding the comparison of Le Canal gelé from JEFF with Bernard Herrmann, I must say I never thought of it. Well, why not ? However, broadly speaking, I don't hold it appropriate to compare this kind of stuff with American scores. With FDR we are dealing with a typically European approach.

François de Roubaix is a fascinating and underrated figure in film music history. He is not in my top 10, but he would certainly make my top 15.

The late Ryuichi Sakamoto was a huge Roubaix fan and included him among his top 13 favorite film composers of all time:

Bernard Herrmann
Alex North
Nino Rota
Leonard Rosenman
Toru Takemitsu
Georges Delerue
Ennio Morricone
Cliff Martinez
Thomas Newman
François de Roubaix
Maurice Jaubert
Eduard Artemyev
Antoine Duhamel

Nice to have bumped this thread again, thanks. I'm coincidentally watching a TV series scored by FDR. It's called RUE BARRÉE (1967), starring the beautiful actress Marlène Jobert in one of her first appearances, even before DERNIER DOMICILE CONNU. I've seen the first 6 episodes so far and I must say that the music is rather sparse and discrete. I assume that FDR performed it alone on the guitar and other instruments in his home studio. It's not essential but still, I would welcome it if this soundtrack would be issued someday together with other unreleased TV stuff. In case where you'd be interested by this rather obscure title, here's a link toward this series :

Me I'm just glad you all post about composers like this I'm not familiar with.

I did pick up Le Samourai on the great Écoutez le cinéma CD series, as I wanted the score with really knowing anything about the composer. And as it was the only movie he scored that I've seen to date.

But this and another thread around these parts got me to invest in the two Monde Electronique albums on the same label.

I enjoy them a lot when I'm in that kind of mood - and there's a lot of clever ideas/arrangement in the music.

Thanks for reminding me to give them another listen!
