The Seduction of Claude Debussy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Keith Farley
More than ten years after the Art of Noise left Trevor Horn's ZTT label to record on their own, original members Anne Dudley and Paul Morley reunited with Horn plus 10cc's Lol Creme to record another LP, organized around the work of French modernist composer Claude Debussy. With a guest list including John Hurt as well as Rakim, the album charts the artistic use of sampled breakbeats -- pioneered by the Art of Noise themselves -- with nods to '80s hip-hop plus their '90s equivalent, drum'n'bass. Though the Art of Noise doesn't sound quite as brash as they did in their '80s prime, The Seduction of Claude Debussy is an interesting showcase ...

    More Please

    "Sound and perfume swirled in the evening air", sounds good to me (especially after a work day like today). I've loved AON for over a decade and this album is no exception. It took me a while to cozy up to it, but it definitely has a seductive flavor.

    I was ''seduced''...

    I've been a fan of the Art of Noise for many years. This CD took me a couple of times to really get ''seduced'' by the rhythyms, vocals, the spoken word by John Hurt, and the concept of the entire production. It is definitely not for the ''pop'' culture, but if you're looking for something different to listen to while in an ''altered state'' or just relaxing, this is the one!

    Magnifico

    It is nice to hear some fresh ''noise'' again. I really like this one a lot. The only problem is.........finding more like this one. Hopefully someone else will catch on and take this genre to the next level. Perhaps if we ask real nicely, the fellas will release another one along these lines and even better. Come to think of it, nobody else could do it any better. Again, Magnifico! Bravo, Bravo. Encore, Encore.

    Daring

    The ''Art of noise'', and in particular Anne Dudley, continue to offer groundbreaking experiments in musical theory with this daring attempt to combine electronic ambience and urban hip-hop with the structures of the symphonic poem. It is an intellectual exercise with fabulous results, but you must listen closely. At first, this effort may seem rather baroque if not a bit presumptuous. From the very beginning, this group - who took the name after the 1913 futuristic manifesto ''L'arte del rumore'', by Italian futurist Luigi Russolo - cultivated ''pure sounds'' in music, wishing to reverse the normal processes of listening to music into pure wonderment which evoked images and sensations coming from different artistic disciplines. Listening to these two CD's dedicated to Debussy, one is also ''seeing'' Baudelaire's poetry as well as ''listening'' to the canvas of Kandinsky, Picabia and Magritte. It is a matemathically controlled, and wonderfully executed composition. Maybe a bit too intellectual for popular demands. Algebra of sound instead of sheer sensation. But intriguing nevertheless.
