Air – Le Voyage Dans La Lune OST – Virgin

I am big fan of soundtracks. Beside the ones of my favourite electronic artists like Plaid (with Tekkon Kinkreet OST and Heaven’s Door OST ) there are a lot of older but superb soundtracks from e.g. The Chemical aka Dust Brothers (Fight Club OST ) and Clint Mansell (Pi OST) and many new ones I enjoyed very much, like Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy OST, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ The Social Network OST, Cliff Martinez’ Drive OST etc.

Air provided a new soundtrack to a new hand coloured version of Georges Méliès 1902 silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (Journey To The Moon). And Air did make it a homage to this film and decided to extend the soundtrack into a full album. Air’s live performance is amazing (I’ve seen them a few years ago playing live in Mainz near Frankfurt) and expectations are high.

Listen to ‘Seven Stars’ (video from NME.com) from the new album and watch an extract of the original version of this film.
