After making ten long albums of Free Culture soundtrack music in a very short period of time — only a couple of years — Gregoire Lourme released this, currently his latest, an extended meditation on Life.
And it feels like it might be a masterpiece.
It’s fifty-seven minutes, and by gum I wish it was longer. It’s a symphony, a celebration, an exuberant cry of joy to the universe. The Vangelis influence is quite clear, but so is, at times, that of Hans Zimmer. And yet, taking those influences, and likely others with whom I am unfamiliar, he creates something wholly new, and wondrous.
It is inspiration, in audio form.
Heck, I’m tempted to joke that I’m giving up Writing Music Mondays, because this can’t be topped.
Or maybe not to joke.
It is Just So Damned Good!
