Un monde sans humains – 2012

To accompany this film by Philippe Borrel which describes the slow and often pernicious robotisation of the world we live in, I wanted the music to have a repetitive, robotic feel underscored by a kind of quiet melancholy to offset the brave new world of technology shown in the film. All the instruments in the pieces are played on real instruments but I wanted to ape the kind of feel more associated with ambient or electronic music.
