philippe d'aram - Fascination
**Darkly erotic Gallic electronics composed by Philippe D'Aram as the score to a legendary femme vamp flick by underground arthouse director Jean Rollin's "most accessible" film. A large influence on the work of Demdike Stare. Includes original and rare artwork and detailed appraisal by filmmaker and Finders Keepers friend and collaborator Daniel Bird. Available in its entirety for the first time, and on deluxe 10" vinyl** "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 exploded onto French cinema screens in the midst of the Mai 68 riots with his freakish art house account of a disillusioned female blood cult Jean Rollin continued, throughout the next four decades, to extract the most bizarre and formidable art directors and musicians of the French underground and give them a platform combining the skills of street actors, Letterists, jazz musicians and fashion designers. Embracing video culture and adult entertainment in the late 70s Rollin's later films (under various guises) provide a treasure trove for lost electronic film music and homemade disco."
