This CD is Lucette's 7th release on Dark Duck Records and with each subsequent release, her musical craft gets more and more focused. Another excellent and yes, recommended release. This release again features her trademark ambient sounds, and once again, she throws in some gentle beats and rhythms that fill out the sound. This release also spotlights a variety of vocal samples and "voices" to fill out the sound. I liken it an otherworldy alien choir.
Lucette Bourdin is a native of France and grew up in the villages and towns near the Doubs River in the eastern part of the country. The childhood phase of scribbling and coloring never ended for Lucette nor could several years of law school diminish her desire to become an artist. So, when she married an American and moved to the United States she felt her life was going to start over and her art would begin. Always an independent and self-disciplined individual, and feeling that the art programs available would only limit her expression, Lucette embarked upon a rigorous study of artists, color and design which eventually resulted in her own unique style.
Using watercolor/gouache as her media, Lucette has developed a painting style, which both expresses and evokes the subtlety of the soul. The outer landscape is a metaphor for the spirit that seeks expression as the light of transformation and redemption.
Oh and by the way, she also is an extremely talented musician who creates stunningly beatiful music, floating melodies, and wonderful textural ambience. This is her 2nd release on Dark Duck Records and continues in her "beautiful floating drones" style that can also be heard on all of her Dark Duck Records releases. More of her music can also be found on her website, and released on the Earth Mantra netlabel.
