Never before released on LP, the complete original soundtracks of French cult film composer François de Roubaix for director Yves Boisset. Two films that embody the two sides of Francois de Roubaix’s approach to recording. For “Le Saut de L’Ange” (1971), the self-taught composer wrote an orchestration for some fifty musicians playing strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion with two distinct solo instruments alternating the main theme: Indian Sitar on the one hand and accordion on the other. This beautiful score creates the seam that binds Bangkok to Marseille, the two places where the action takes place.
R.A.S (1973) was recorded on a 8-track tape recorder, in François de Roubaix’s home studio rue de Courcelle, where most of his 70’s scores were recorded. The result is a mix of military-march rhythms, rolls on the snare-drum with sounds of Synthi AKS syntheziser: de Roubaix invented a modern sound for this contemporary-History tragedy.
