Boomkat Product Review:
The impeccable pickers at Mexico City’s Umor Rex pluck out a real gem of expressive, almost pop-wise and cinematic synth music by a member of Paris’s esteemed GRM. Think Pye Corner Audio meets François De Roubaix and you’ve got a grip on Bazin’s sublime synthetic sound.
“Alexandre Bazin is a Paris-based composer. Full Moon combines his perpetual musical influences —film music and experimentalism— as the departure point for his Umor Rex debut. Eleven stunning compositions with a neo-classical signature, an obsessive focus on structure and a refined sense of melody. Emotional compositions serve as interludes to relaxing, post-new age moments, with plenty of space for intuitive beat journeys. An independent-minded composer attuned to the society that surrounds him, he channels the fury of the world into exceptional music marked with poetry. With a free-thinking approach to writing, Alexandre transcends context and genres. Full Moon is the meeting point of early electronic analog exploration and classical minimalism.
Alexandre Bazin won the Premier Prix du Conservatoire and he earned his Diplôme d’Etudes Musicales. Is Graduate of the Conservatoire National system in Lyon and Bordeaux, and is member of the GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales).”
