FELTHAT: Sound Years

Michel Banabila is primarily known for film scores, theatre and video art scores. With that kind of experience you can really expect a chamelon sort  of genre and that's is almost to be the truth.
But as an experienced musician and a visionary he knows his way around and helps himself with vast array of means to accomplish his goals.
Music presented on "Sound Years", a beautifully released vinyl, has a base of ethereal ambient guitar work which you might associate with Eno/Fripp archetype. But this is just a base to tiny little delights that this album  has e.g. oriental acoustic instrumentation in the first track, rich and lush synth textures, drone ambience, piano work, a bit whimsical, gentle vocals.
What is most striking is whatever Michel is playing - he can embellish it as a master - you can see his craft  in each little corner.
Delights...  (Hubert Heathertoes)
