|**BACK IN STOCK – BE QUICK!!**Animated sci-fi masterpiece La Planète Sauvage (a.k.a.
Fantastic Planet), winner at Cannes Film Festival in 1973,
is a bizarre and beautiful film. Towering blue-skinned
figures, tiny humanoids in the midst of revolt, and druginduced
Tantric sex transport viewers to a truly magical setting.
Composer Alain Goraguer creates an equally hypnotic
score from a palette of effects-laden guitars, flutes, Fender
Rhodes and strings. While the lush arrangements are reminiscent
of Goraguer’s collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg
in the 1960s, space-age synth flourishes suggest
a more psychedelic era. Moody vignettes flow together in
tense, slow-paced funk rhythms and Baroque textures.
It comes as no surprise that La Planète Sauvage has
been cited as an influence on contemporary artists such as
French duo Air and American hip-hop producers J Dilla and
Madlib. Gorgeous, interplanetary soundscapes resemble
the surreal meeting point between Pink Floyd’s Obscured
by Clouds and Broadcast’s Future Crayon.
