From Sun Ra with “Nuclear war”, Miles Davis in “Shhh / Peaceful” or “Theme from a symphony” by Ornette Coleman to “Caravan” (already quoted by many jazzmen), Etienne enjoyed revisiting classic jazz masterpieces and paying tribute to his inspirations. He allowed himself only one personal and original composition, “Ma révélation mystique”.

Zombie Zombie delivers an album full of synthetizers, oscillating between abstract ambiant and kraut. It is quite rich when one decides to dive in it, but is never obstructing with anything, making it also perfect background music. Thibaut Devigne

A sublime collection of ambient and emotive electronica.
There is a real sense of space and grandeur here - some of the songs feel distinctly Floydian in inspiration (particularly by Shine on You Crazy Diamond), but the synth waves and pulses develop in very differently.
And the songs are clever, too; they and and flow; rather than simply meander. These are compositions. Voyages, really.
Fans of music that engages the heart, mind and soul equally should investigate immediately. Michael Mueller
