Many people don’t know that there are other gifted musicians in France besides Jean-Michel Jarre.
The starting point of Bertrand Loreau‘s CD-releases on the well known MUSEA-Label goes back to the year 1993. In France Bertrand Loreau is one of the most talented artists in the field of progressive electronic music.
That’s the reason why Spheric Music became curious and made an exquisite selection of his early musical highlights. The result is a nostalgic review on Bertrand’s starting musical career: Journey Through The Past
The titles came from the period of 1982-1988, when Bertrand has composed many Berlin School influenced tracks. But it was always important to him to put
his own emotion into the songs. Though the tracks are old and the sound quality had some weak points we feel fascinated by these old pieces:
Loreau managed to warm up, depthen and melancholize the partly cold and monotonous Berlin School atmosphere.
By his experiences in classical piano and probably as well by his french roots, the tracks gain melodically and harmonically a special emotional charme.
Come on, let us go on a journey through the past of the vintage synthesizer sounds of the 80s. Have a pleasant journey!
A hint of Jarre, a hint of Schulze, a hint of Froese and a good patch of french emotion supply a great harmonic-dreamy charme.
