Echoes interview with Prequell's Thomas Roussel

Bookmark and Share

Fashion runway shows are not the places I usually look for music to play on Echoes. But if I had looked, I would've found the music of Prequell, the recording guise of French composer Thomas Roussel. He does shows for Pigalle, Michael Kors, Christian Dior and other high fashion designers. He treats these shows as if he was scoring a movie and the sound is nothing if not cinematic.With The Future Comes Before, Rousel combines The London Symphony Orchestra with analog synthesizers, digital beats and a few guest vocalists. The conceit of the album is that it begins in the future and ends in the past The tracks run in reverse order from the future tracking back in time. The future is now when we talk to Thomas Roussel about the future now on Echoes.
