about

Louis de Mieulle is reborn as Louison to present his first 100% electronic album. Synthesizing his classical European upbringing with shameless American exuberance.

MAGNETIC FEEL

Sci-fi music suite for future times, evoking « The edifice of the universe which, with its infinitely large, its part on the human scale and its infinitely small, rests on the unity of two contrary and complementary charges. » (V. Vasarely)

DIGITAL POETRY

Electro symphony for emotional machines. Tribute to the 70s (Canterbury scene, synthprog), as well as 80s Sci-Fi film scores. Progwave? Electrofusion? Given the choice, it would be: "CYBERPROG".

CLASSICAL HERITAGE

Playful counterpoints, unheard harmonies, epic grandeur. The cyclical form of the album (pattern re-use/variations) strengthens unity and gives the variations a semantic, even esoteric value. Classical: Louison's favorite music, timeless, far from human trends and their crass vulgarity.

TRIBUTE TO THE COSMOS

After an introduction presenting the themes to come (Prologue), you'll witness star dances (Galactic Rondo, Stargazing, Galaxian Explosion); A poetization of physical phenomena (Conservation of Energy, Electron-Positron); And the end of Homo Sapiens (Human Epilogue), and of the Universe itself (Big Freeze, Big Rip).
