Biography

Electronic composer Bernard Xolotl was born in France in 1951. As a teen, he was introduced to electronic music through the works of musique concrete composers like Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer, although he found the early recordings of Pink Floyd to be more inspirational. At age 18, he realized that he needed more freedom to live and express his ideas than the one that France could ... Read more in Amazon's Bernard Xolotl Store

This is by far the best album by Bernard Xolotl.The addition of violin and viola on top of Xolotls synths make this music achingly beautiful and emotional,nothing drab or tedious as the above reviewer states. In over 30 years of listening to synth music there is nothing else i know like this. This album was first released in 1982 and very little synth music since has matched the intence beauty of this, an all time classic.This music has even been heard on TV to accompany very sad scenes.

I was happy enough to have stumbled across this artist on the web and bought this album on a recommendation, but mainly I had to write a brief review to offset the incredibly negative write-up which - at the time of writing - was one of just two and therefore dragging the overall rating way down. If you like classic synth music of the 70s and early 80s - Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze et al - chances are you'll at least want to check this out. It's quite derivative overall, particularly of 'Dune' by Schulze in its synth/cello (or is it violin?) interplay, but there are some truly sublime and beautiful moments here. Contrary to what has been written, this isn't a weak point in Xolotl's discography, it may just be the peak.

This is awful. Dire. Drab, droning and unbearably tedious. I don't know anything about the other artist, Daniel Kobialka, but I'm hoping he's the bad influence and will fade away. Very soon.

Xolotl can do much better than this (try his excellent Last Wave) and should stick to collaborating with Cyrille Verdeaux (try Prophecy, it's great). Maybe he did, I don't know which album(s) came first.

Give the guy a chance.

But not Procession. I can only repeat, awful, dire, drab, tedious.

Procession By Bernard Xolotl - 1981. 7 July 2009
By Bernard Jacquet - Published on Amazon.com
"Bernard XOLOTL: Procession Truly a beautiful album in every respect. Procession is a collaboration between master of electronics Xolotl and virtuosic violinist Daniel Kobialka and represents the perfect fusion of electronic and classical influences. Each of the four instrumental pieces features Kobialka's sweeping, mournful strings interwoven with Xolotl's melancholy synthesized orchestration, creating a lush, meditative mood which is thoroughly engaging. The production and arrangements are flawless, making this a very pleasurable listening experience."
