Library music is, by definition, pretty obscure, but this one really pushes it. Bernard Fevre’s Orbit Ceremony 77 is an album of library music that was never even released, and was thought lost to the ages. Until a fortunate discovery of the original tapes that is! Now these strange 70’s space-synth pieces can finally be heard. Out on Medical Records, pressed to mustard coloured vinyl.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 13 October 2016

By now, the 70s and all it’s synthetic contents are surely well known by the record-collecting community, with more soundtracks and lost tapes from forgotten synthesists turning up now than back then. It’s garnered a lot of a love, with names such as this Bernard Fevre man getting attention from the likes of Rephlex and the Chemical Brothers.

He’s mostly known for his more dance oriented Black Devil Disco Club releases, and despite some dodgy ‘it was acceptable in the 70s’ album covers, it’s good fun. But this release isn’t about fun, or at least, not funky good times fun. It’s a suite of so-called ‘library music’ aka ‘filler’ that features some almost symphonic sequencing and some actually pretty bold synth sounds for the time. It’s not all Vangelis synth strings here, you’ve got some rather wild sounds that blur the line between sci-fi SFX and conventional melody or percussion. They’re pretty techno, as the start of the 2nd track of side B reinforces, almost sounding Morton Subotnick-y at times. No wonder the Chemical Bros took note.

So yes this does adequately steer clear of enough of the cliches of 70s synth to actually be worthwhile.
