François de Roubaix's "L'Homme Orchestre"

Truly one of the great French film composers (and there are quite a few) François de Roubaix's "L'Homme Orchestre" is ....insane.   The orchestra is all in the kitchen and it is like that room has spinned around not once, but twice, and presto you get this soundtrack album.  And I gather the film is a musical, because there is a lot of music on this album.  French pop meets jazz meets experimental tape techniques, meets visions in one's head.  I am almost afraid to see the film, because I think what I see in my head maybe even better than the actual film.  But who knows.....   Great record.
