Julien Marchal is a composer from Bordeaux, France. Insight II is a follow-up to the initial 2015 album of the same name.
The track ‘Insight XX’ rings with a beautiful, smooth piano theme that “takes the listener inside the piano,” he says.
This reminded me of a quote I recently discovered from the naturalist John Muir:
“Most people are on the world, not in it.”
Lovely stuff. Check out the incredible music video and more on Julien’s Bandcamp page.
Square Lines are French duo Nicolas Le Mée and Simon Jolliet. Their debut EP Transmissions Overseas is an exploration of abstract sounds, much in tune with many of the other ambient artists signed to London-based Apollo Records.
