Info: Brand New Original LP, Limited to 400 copies.
Alexandre is a composer and a current member of GRM, based in Paris, France. He holds a master’s degree in electronic music and composition from Conservatory in Bordeaux, France. His work considers ‘the sonic experience’ drawing on a rich mix of acoustic instrumentation and analogue synthesis along the way. As an experimentalist music researcher, Bazin’s compositional projects are primarily concerned with a very personal seal on a music with emotional power. With “Sun Dog Trail”, Alex merged several inspirations; Firstly, the influence of experimental electronic music, and more specifically a tribute to Bernard Parmegiani. Secondly, the influence of the blues with musicians like John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters, (English drummer Tim Wellers (The Divine Comedy) guests on drums here).
The end result is the “Sun Dog Trail”, an experience that combines Bazin's usual musical fusions with experimental and blues forms, taking the listener on multiple adventurous journeys. For this album Alex used rarer instruments such as an EMS VCS3 synth, Buchla musical easel, Minimoog, and Cristal Baschet.
The LP’s sleeve saw an ambitious attempt to use Franco Grignani’s beautiful 1966 graphic masterpiece "Fenomeno Plastico-Chiaroscurale" as its centrepiece, and to all parties’ delight, Franco’s daughter Manuella willingly agreed to its use and is incorporated into a design by longterm PY ally Nick Taylor.
