Alain Pierre - Ô Sidarta LP
Within the elusive confines of this film awaits an album that defies categorisation by a musician who in a different time and space would be revered amongst some of the most important exponents of progressive rock, dark ambient, Krautrock and pioneering synthesiser composition - not to mention sound design and art-house film scores.
As a protégé of François Bayle and Luc Ferrari who had studied classical music before immersing himself in found-sound manipulation and oscillators, Alain Pierre quickly became an enthusiastic go-to man for sound sculpture and technical studio proficiency in Belgium’s small film industry.
To the many generations of dedicated fans of the visual work of Philippe Druillet it might seem virtually impossible to adequately score the alien, futurist landscapes of the man who many called the ‘space architect’ (on account of his space age reductions of Gothic cathedrals, Art Nouveau and Indian temples) but once you have heard the sonic reactions of Alain Pierre on this first-ever dedicated Druillet documentary, "Ô Sidarta", complete with his own equivalent sound palette, it will be difficult to ‘hear’ Druillet’s world via any other composer.
