Les Biches

CD (Item 613677) Saimel (Spain), 1968 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 12

A dark score for this late 60s Claude Chabrol film – penned by frequent musical collaborator Pierre Jansen, who really outdoes himself with this great soundtrack! In keeping with Chabrol's narrative, lots of the musical tones are nice and dark – some very submerged in the mix, with this almost out of reach sort of feel – which creates tension as we strain to pick them up! Yet other points are a bit lighter – maybe more what you'd expect from a 60s French soundtrack – but these are quickly cut by some of Jansen's offbeat string or woodwind elements, often seemingly tuned in very odd ways. The sound on this reissue is great – and the set features 20 tracks that include "Les Biches", "Aurora", "Due Donne Insieme", "Beat In", and "Dance Out".
