Space Art



Space Art is a French band that was formed by two friends in Paris in 1977. The group consisted of Dominique Perrier on keyboards and Roger Rizzitelli on drums. Their first (self-titled) of three albums was released in the same year as Jean-Michel Jarre’s, “Oxygene.” Knowledgeable Jarre fans will recognize the names, because both went along on the 1981 China tour...

Amazing hypnotic sweet epic sleezy progey DISCO jams with sooo much class..

Delicious!

Thanks for this wonderful work. Very 1970s b-movie sound. Type of immersive music i love listening to while playing a computer game of FALLOUT 3. Happy New Years! :D

Well worth playing the entire three 'Space Art' albums back to back, they do create a strange immersive self-contained universe kind of feeling...my gods do the French do this kind of music better than anyone else!

Weird how 'Space Art' are often dismissed as Jarre/TD clones when they are clearly so much more than that, the 'Love Machine' track from Play Back alone makes them stand cosmic head and shoulders with many of the late seventies kosmische offerings.

Love the block-pixel lo-res video, clearly the work of a fan with a tiny video monitor ;)

des anciens musiciens du chanteur français Christophe qui ont eu l'éxcellente idée de faire trois albums de musique electronique, tellement sublime et intemporel.
la grande classe

thanks a lot, i just bought their first one blindly this weekend on a flea market and was surprised in a very nice way upon giving it a first spin... The sleeve wasn't too promising (the synth keys...)
