Deidre House This is just a really fantastic fusion release. Favorite track: Insect Party (aka Soundfrieze #2).

Aakashdeep Criminally under-recognized release, even I had not heard it for a long time. Has the same fascinating song and sonic structure as Louis' other releases, but can also be very easy to listen to.Mellow, happy, and fascinating. The album cover looks exactly how the music feels. Favorite track: Gemini - part 2: Pollux (YANG).

On a warm summer night, at the outskirts of the mysterious teeming forest, Petrified Wood stumps tell their story…
The Gemini constellation shines bright in the celestial vault, while Castor's song descends upon the Earth...
Insects gather for the Grand Bug Party. Wobbly millipedes, glowworm choirs, restless cockchafer, thieving ants: on the verge of chitinous chaos!
Nanobot 04:43 video
Underground, parasites and outcasts meet at The Nanobot, a shabby bar where roaches, spiders and tapeworms drown their sorrow in cheap lichen alcohol...
Green Hojary 06:46
Outside, the much revered Boswellia Sacra tree oozes its precious resin. Purification. Wisps of smoke fly away to the sky...
The Taurus Constellation glows in a troubling way. Tension is rising upon Earth. The Gemini Twins split; then reunite. But it's too late: the process has begun, "it" is happening. Last memories. End of Time.
Passing from one world to another. The Taurus constellation doesn't glow anymore. Gemini Twins sing their sorrow and revolt against Nature's inexorable law.
Doff 04:10
An ancestral childish song is heard coming from a tiny new-born planet. Plants and insects emerge from their torpor...
Malt 06:25
The Sun God awakes, and presents his prosperity to all things on Earth. Barley is turned into Malt - Celebration!
Imperturbable, eternal, Petrified Wood stumps tell their story...


Second album from French bassist/composer established in NYC.
A story about Life, Death and Rebirth.

"More melodic than Defense Mechanisms but no less complex, Stars, Plants & Bugs is an instrumental concept album that transmits the natural and cosmic themes of the album title through a music that is both intellectual but at the same time easy on the ear." [Roger Trenwith, TPA]

"Une musique aux mille mouvements hypnotiques et à tout autant de mélodies charmeuses. Là où la batterie déploie des trésors d'inventivité rythmique étourdissante, la flûte apporte quelques notes de poésie éthérée." [Lucas Biela, C&O]
