The Book of Genesis tells us that in the beginning was the Word and that the Word was sound. But what if it was music? What if God, in contemplating the creation of Creation, sang being into being? If so, it might have sounded something like the Sacred Songs of Valentin Silvestrov. In this seventh ECM album devoted to the Ukrainian composer’s music, we thusly encounter a sense of space unique to the Russian liturgy: the more the voices unify in movement, the more they lift from one another like temporary tattoos, leaving behind mirror images that wash away with baptism into infinite oneness with the Holy Spirit. Sin as sun. Firmament as fundament.

This new release by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu is an all-Sibelius programme featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. The album includes two major tone poems by Jean Sibelius, Tapiola and En Saga, combined with a set of songs orchestrated by Aulis Sallinen (b. 1935) in 2015. Sibeliuss tone poem Tapiola, written shortly after the 7th Symphony, may be regarded as the culmination of a period that began with the Fifth Symphony, a period where Sibelius created music that grew organically out of tiny germs into huge processes. It was completed in 1926 and remained Sibeliuss last great orchestral work.

Aux confins des musiques world (latin, mambo, Brésil) et jazz (orchestration en big band), d'une facture délicieusement surannée et vintage, l'univers de Karl Zéro mêle humour, poésie et tendresse. Il reprend à la sauce « grands orchestres tropicaux » des années 1940-1950, des tubes new wave (Kraftwerk, Mikado.), électro-rap (Stupéflip), ou détourne des titres intemporels (réalise une version brésilienne de « l'eau à la bouche » de Gainsbourg). Il chante en français, russe ou arabe et s'est entouré d'Abd Al Malik, Arielle Dombasle ou Daisy d'Errata, qui se retrouvent dans des rôles à contre-emploi. Karl Zéro a réuni la fine fleur du jazz parisien au légendaire studio Ferber et confié les somptueux arrangements et la conduction d'orchestre du big band à Raphaël Lemmonier (China Moses). Un disque comme on en fait plus, concocté à l'ancienne avec une ampleur acoustique unique.

The 21st studio long-player from the British electronic music legend, Savage (Songs from a Broken World) is the follow-up to 2013's acclaimed Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind), which saw Numan delivering his highest-charting album since 1983's Warriors. A willfully dark, narrative-driven concept album concerning the melding of Eastern and Western cultures in a post-apocalyptic world that's been decimated by the effects of climate change, Savage is awash in ambient horrorscapes, blast-furnace percussion, and electro-goth synth leads that suggest Depeche Mode by way of Nine Inch Nails. Numan made the shift from new wave robot bard to industrial soothsayer in the 2000s or so ago – his adenoidal voice is as captivating as ever – so longtime fans aren't expecting the next Tubeway Army or Pleasure Principle…
