Lisa Gerrard and Marcello De Francisci
Originally released in 2010, Lisa Gerrard and Marcello De Francisci’s Departum is the sort of record that crops up in those ‘chill out’ mixes on YouTube. Weirdly enough, a lot of it isn’t that relaxing. Gerrard has been nominated for Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe, so it’s no surprise that much of this record is a pretty bombastic take on electronic ambient. Departum self-identifies as being influenced by ‘ancient cultures’, though this is more Apocalypto than anything else.
