Boomkat product review for:

various / finders keepers - Fascination / Requiem for a Vampire

**Stunning double feature of darkly erotic film scores by French synth experimenters and free-rockers, Philippe D'Aram and Pierre Raph, for the films of Jean Rollin. A massive influence on Demdike Stare and comparable with the synth scores of Suzanne Ciani or John Carpenter. Includes important musical snippets from heavily censored scenes, with original and rare artwork and detailed sleevenotes by filmmaker and FK friend and collaborator Daniel Bird** "Comprising key scores by two of his regular collaborators, and bookending his most creative and lauded decade, the release of two original soundtracks to French director Jean Rollin's Fascination (1979) and Requiem Pour Un Vampire (1972) mark Finders Keepers' latest release in a series of tributes to 'Frances first-ever vampire film director' and a long running patron of the Paris underground theatre, comic art and alternative literature movements...Embracing video culture and adult entertainment int he late 70s Rollin's later film (under various guises) provide a treasure trove for lost electronic film music and homemade disco. This latest compendium combines the moody unsung European synth experiments of Pierre D'Aram and unreleased improvised free-rock of Pierre Raph, who have until this point never benefited the attentive audience that has come with a recent resurgence in modern macabre art-rock and experimental cold-pop, drone and improvised electronica... An early exponent of the growing trend of synthesizer music in horror soundtracks, Philippe D'Aram and his 1979 score for Jean Rollin's 'Fascination' treads the same ground as early John Carpenter and Suzanne Ciani film music while maintaining an essential Gallic charm shared by a young Jean-Michelle Jarre or Philippe Besombes. His fusion of synthetic choral arrangements with bowed saws and subtle processed drones and tones sit comfortably next to the privately pressed new age synth movement of the coming decade and project further inspiration for the brooding neo- concrete of current outfits like Sunn O))), Demdike Stare et al...Having previously provided music for an under the counter Rollin sex film called 'Jeunes Filles Impudiques' the obscure Pierre Raph's energetic drum and organ based soundtrack for 'Requiem Pour Un Vampire' from 1972 earns its place around the feet of other French Horrotica soundtracks like Francois De Roubaix's 'Levre Rogues' or British soundtracks to 'Psychomania' by library music ensemble Frog."
