"YEAH, THE FRENCH DO IT BETTER" (BMG)
Thirteen excerpts of my chamber music are now available for the audiovisual professionals,
gathering very varied colors, bass clarinet and marimba duo, tenor saxophone duo, bassoon and piano duo, alto saxophone and cello duo, tenor sax quartet, flute, celesta, and piano. An explosion of colors! For this project I collaborated with great soloists, such as Jean-Michel Goury, Agnès Vesterman, Olivier Innocenti, Emmanuel Séjourné, Jean-Marc Foltz, the Amon Quartet, Tommy Davis, Paul Riveaux, Benny Sluchin.
The so-called "contemporary" music generally evokes "weird" atmospheres when associated with the cinema.
Here, the editor underlines the "elegant, artistic, sophisticated" character of the suggested atmospheres. Thanks to him!
Presentation of the editor:
"Bring on your frantic, anxious, agitated scenes. Lay out your dark, agitated, flustered sequences. Where do these crossroad paths lead us? To a world of games and mysteries. Contemporary French composer Denis Levaillant is once again proven guilty of musical mastery. A bit crazy, a tad buoyant, and there you have it: Volume 9 presents complex, tense, atonal, arrhythmic, exciting, and edgy themes. Strings, sax, and other wind instruments like the oboe and the bassoon. Accordions, piano, flutes, and marimbas. Intertwining arrangements and tense and anxious moods, Levaillant always exceeds his ambitious goals. Yeah, the French do it better. Perfectly suited for Drama, Suspense, Tension, Film, Art House, and Dramedy movies."
