Boomkat Product Review:
French pianist and film score composer Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch takes to a Bosendorfer Imperial to express grief at the loss of a parent in her most personal and intimate recordings to date.
‘Ravage’ is Emilie’s 3rd solo album and first since 2018’s ‘Epoque’, with notable original scores, including for Sarah Gavron’s British Independent Film Award-nominated, coming-of-age drama ‘Rocks’, issued during the interim. Striking a critical balance of sombre melancholy and lighter, reflective feelings interspersed by pangs of deep pain, ‘Ravage’ portrays the London-based composer and performer stripped of any assistance, working through her emotions in a solitary recording process that began in the wake of her father’s passing in 2018, and was completed during winter of 2020/21.
With the expressive mood of a film soundtrack composer, Emilie limns her subject most tenderly thru the keys, with additional, subtle synthetic shrouding and textures heightening the transitional feeling of wordless emotions fleeting and resolving. Fans of film scores and the deeply respected voices of Jóhann Jóhannsson, Mica Levi, or Hildur Guddnadottir will surely recognise the calibre of Emilie’s touch.
