the time has come for a moment of spirituality and reverence, as the pond goes into autumn quarters flood-lighted by generous indian-summer sun beams.
french ambient-drone Saåad return with a new album untitled Verdaillon released this month on In Paradisum. this musical live piece created by Romain Barbot and Gregory Buffier was commissioned by the festivals Les Siestes Électroniques & Toulouse Les Orgues, who offered the band to play on the Puget symphonic pipe organ in the Church of Notre-Dame de la Dalbade, in france.
genuine celestial beauty, this new album doesn’t turn Saåad’s back on drones and samples, and synthesizes the spirit of sacred music, with the support of experimental, electronic sounds. Verdaillon invites you to believe in the beauty of spiritual music, using your own organs of hearing, instead of following the dogmas of faith.
the video shot and directed by Grégoire Orio (As Human Pattern) is an introduction to the recording of the album, and to the magnificent piece of work created by Prosper Moitessier in 1844, which was rebuilt by Eugène Puget in 1927.
