One year after طرب TARAB, French Paris-based collective Oiseaux-Tempête (Frédéric D. Oberland, Stéphane Pigneul) recently released a new album titled From Somewhere Invisible. Now they announced a new album titled TLAMESS (Spell) which is the original soundtrack for the second feature film by critically-acclaimed Tunisian director Ala Eddine Slim. It features Mondkopf (analog synths & modular system) and Jean-Michel Pirès (drums & percussion). “Drone Alpha” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
Combining hypnotic feedbacks and synthesizer orchestral work, drifting ambient with shamanic beats, TLAMESS (Spell) O.S.T was entirely improvised in front of the rushes of the movie, between Mikrokosm recording studios in Lyon and Magnum Diva home studio in Paris, by OISEAUX-TEMPÊTE’s quartet core team: Frédéric D. Oberland, Stéphane Pigneul, Mondkopf & Jean-Michel Pirès (Bruit Noir). Fully instrumental, including extended versions and unreleased tracks, this immersive film score is also their most electronic album to date.
Ala Eddine Slim first met OISEAUX-TEMPÊTE during Autumn 2018, few months before starting to shoot. He briefly explained ideas about the synopsis, offering a musical “carte blanche” to compose this soundtrack. The purpose would be that the film score should act as a mutating character inside the movie rather than a moody faraway atmosphere.
