My God Is Blue
Cochon Ville - EP
Throughout his career, Sebastien Tellier has been inspired, almost infatuated, with different mentally, spiritually and physically provocative subjects, with each such infatuation going on to conceive a vision and a theme for an album. He's proved himself to be the undisputed king of a pop classic with a psychical, sensual and physical pull.alliancebleue.com
Confection is a surprise-album from the talented composer Sebastien Tellier, which was released digitally in Canada on October 29th, 2013 via Bonsound.
Apart from one song, Confection is entirely instrumental, composed by Sebastien like a motion picture score. Several romantic musical themes are showcased in different ways (orchestrally, acoustically, etc). The climax of these themes create a powerful mix of emotions and fantastic images for the listener.
The maestro opted for an old-school, artisnale recording style for this new opus. The team that helped Tellier create his cult classic song La Ritournelle seven years ago have reunited for the occasion: Tony Allen on drums (of Fela fame), Rob on the keyboards (Phoenix), and Emmanuel d'Orlando on string arrangements. Philippe Zdar (who has mixed for Phoenix, Cat Power, Beastie Boys, etc.) mixed the record.
`Confection is an album dear to Tellier's soul, a testimony to his deep musical skills. The music showcases his outstanding knack for melodies like his early albums such as L'incroyable vérité or Politics. Confection is a love letter for a film that doesn't yet exist.
Throughout his career, Sebastien Tellier has been inspired, almost infatuated, with different mentally, spiritually and physically provocative subjects, with each such infatuation going on to conceive a vision and a theme for an album. From 2004’s Politics, through to the hugely successful Sexuality in 2008, Tellier has spent the past decade practicing and mastering the art of igniting a flash of inspiration into a blazing inferno of realized creativity.
From the first rattles of debut single Fantino back in 2001, through to the enduring popularity of 2005’s sumptuous La Ritournelle and the smash hit success of Eurovision touted Divine, Tellier has proved himself to be the undisputed king of a pop classic with a psychical, sensual and physical pull. His latest opus is the work of a composer, a poet, a visionary, an inventor, whose ambition is to bring back the imaginary, to revive dreaming. It’s an invitation, and what a glorious place Sébastien Tellier’s imagination is proving to be.
