François Bréant - Sons Optiques mp3 album

Best known at the time as the keyboardist in the band of French singer/songwriter Bernard Lavilliers, François Bréant released his first solo album in 1979 on Egg, reissued in 2002 by Musea. Bréant's progressive rock roots show all the way through this fine platter of progressive electronic music with a jazz-rock twist, which compares favorably to contemporary albums by Edgar Froese, Alpha Ralpha, and Jean-Luc Ponty.

Br�ant's first solo album came after years of being around the French prog scene, an dit was recorded with his usual partner in crimes, Perru, Arroyo and Lacordaire, but a few added high-profile "guests" like Didier Lockwood and Albert Marcoeur. The album cover with Breant pulling the film out gives us a hint at his idea for a sound and visual recording. Of course hanging out with a bunch of Zeuhl musicians over many years has to have an influence as well. A really solid album that Avant fans should appreciate.

Breant, Francois - Sons Optiques. I'm certain that many of you will fondly remember this keyboard-dominated album that came out on Egg in France in the late 1970's. In addition to his solo works, Breant was in a band with Albert Marcoeur called Nemo and he is responsible for the wonderful artwork on Albert's first 3 album covers! This album includes contributions from a number of well known musicians: Didier Lockwood, Albert Marcoeur, Pascal Arroyo, Klaus Basquiz, Stella Vander, Guy Delacroix
