Atone is a massively talented Frenchman who constructs some really fine quality experimental, electronic & post-rock sounds for release on the Autres Directions label. On his latest collection, 'Cet Après-Midi Là', a stuttering melancholy jazz-flecked piece gives way to a brilliantly eccentric organic "folktronic" segment which includes these lush field recordings with some sort of woodblock/xylophone cascading thing which strikes me as a most pleasing sound. He's got this woozy, hazy free-flowing thing happening with his music that keeps you consistently interested, moved & amused. It's the acoustic properties of this album that I love the most, it sounds so alive & intimate - like, for instance, sad streaks of melodica flow into organic electronics, then you've the crazy feral rhythms built from acoustic & synthetic samples which are totally intriguing. This is a wondrous widescreen collage of sound that has the feel of some kind of bizarre futuristic classical/musique concrete movement but with strong electronic/ambient & ponderous folk elements, a real progressive hybrid. Totally taken by this, a truly special CD!
