Harpagès, Simple Visions [Autres Directions In Music - MOULIN004, 2004]
Simple Visions is the name of the latest release on the Adim label, it’s moulin 004 produced by Harpagès. They deliver a single track stretching some 28 minutes creating an amazing atmosphere with clearly cinematic characteristics. The visual associations are direct and enter as soon as you start playing the track, so its title “Simple Visions” is very fitting indeed. However don’t be misled and assume that this is simple music, nothing could be further from the truth. Because even if the visions summoned by the music may or may not be simple the same cannot be said about the music itself. It’s an intriguing piece of work that really fits on the Adim label as well. As it turns out after reading the accompanied information this piece was originally ordered in connection with a festival taking place in Lille, France and resulted in a short film. The music was made before the film and should not be regarded as a soundtrack as such it’s more than that. As usual the track and artwork (not the film though) is available for download at the Adim site or purchasable as CDR for 5 euros. Go and get it now!
