BBC Review

You may have, in the last two years or so, encountered the music of a French duo named Zombie Zombie, who employ lots of old and cumbersome synthesisers to create music that nods elegantly to cosmic 70s disco, Krautrock, prog and electro. Night Music is the debut solo album from Etienne Jaumet, who is half of Zombie Zombie, and its overall feel is less of a surprise than Zombie Zombie presumably were to anyone who checked them out on the basis of one of their members (the other half, one Cosmic Neman) playing in the decidedly un-cosmic indie-pop band Herman Düne.

In the grand tradition of the proggy excess that was rife 30-or-so years ago, For Falling Asleep – the first track of the five on this album – lasts 20 minutes and 25 seconds. It builds, almost imperceptibly, into a repetitious exploration of space that’s worthy of synth masters like Steve Hillage or German trance-rock icons Ash Ra Tempel. Even the jazz sax that arrives about halfway through reveals itself tastefully, and when it winds down for a final few minutes of deep space drone mixed with delicate harp (played by Emmanuelle Parrenin, a French folk singer who could be considered that nation’s answer to Vashti Bunyan), you feel like you’ve been spirited away to a peculiar but idyllic dimension.

While the remainder of the disc features slightly more bite-sized numbers, the general commitment to lush, nocturnal machine music remains in place throughout. Jaumet has been aided here by Carl Craig, one of the most important figures in Detroit techno and whose aesthetic has tended more towards the spacious and intellectual end of the genre, rather than its harsh and pounding side. His role was that of mixer and producer, so we the listeners can only speculate on precisely what effect his handiwork had – certainly, though, Night Music is a sonic triumph, each drum machine thump and vintage sequencer sounding like they don’t have a hair out of place. It is one of the finest examples of the revival of the ‘kosmische’ micro-genre of recent times, up there with Lindstrøm’s acclaimed 2008 album Where You Go I Go Too. --Noel Gardner

...is what it says on the label (and the reason why I purchased).

Etienne Jaumet is, I understand, also in a band called Zombie Zombie. Which is significant, as this record sounds like it was recorded by a zombie.

A French zombie trapped in an elevator with Carl Craig.

If you like any of the following, then "Night Music" will be your cup of tea:

- The Days of Mars by Delia Gonzalez and Gavin Russom
- Black Meteoric Star by Black Meteoric Star
- Some Deaths Take Forever by Bernard Szajner
- or even "Feverhouse - The Soundtrack" by Biting Tongues (FACT 105)

The converse also applies.

To sum up - 2001: A Space Odyssey/Tangerine Dream/Six Nine/John Carpenter/Graham Massey vibes in full effect.

Check out Shaun Of The Dead [DVD] [2004], that's good too.

HASH(0x9ce62300) out of 5 stars Etienne Jaumet - Night Music 28 Oct. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The long drone and steady beats of "For Falling Asleep" pulls you into Etienne Jaumet's NIGHT MUSIC, preparing you for the journey. Even as that track delivers some late night easy listening jazz sax into the mix, it takes that line and transforms it into a buzzing synth, adding a certain frisson. You can hear Carl Craig's hand at work here: the smoothness, the Detroitian shimmer. Indeed, "Entropy" has a sleek, futuristic feel that wouldn't be out of place on a Planet E record. "Mental Vortex" and "Through the Strata" on the other hand, offer up a sort of techno-jazz fusion (the former with all electronics, the latter with what sounds like bagpipes), and the horns on "At the Crack of Dawn" feels like a dawn on a distant gas giant planet. Only five tracks, but with a surfeit of ideas.

By Ryan Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Jaumet is normally making jangly and spooky synth rock as one half of Zombie Zombie, but on this record he calms down a bit and gets more into the mental game of horror music...The slow builds, the interesting noises that make you wonder...he can do it all. It is a sold record from start to finish. The sax adds a new level of creepy too, and really enriches the album. If you like Zombi or basically anything Steve Moore has been doing - you'll love this record. Great for the dying glow of Fall, and even better for the harsh darkness of Winter.
