Based on their first four works (Deus Ex Machina, Dark Wave, Broken Land, IH x Moondog), with “Polar Star” the big band presents another real suite, just as David Haudrechy likes to compose his works.
The genesis of this piece is an ode to the explorers who visited “the ends of the worlds”, the North and South Poles. Between icebergs, extreme cold, icy waters, endless landscapes, clear skies, currents and crazy expeditions like those of Jean-Louis Etienne with Ocean Polaire.
Polar Star embodies the visual and soundtrack of these madcap epics: a music that is simultaneously intimate, fragile and epic, and at times abysmal to escape into a dreamlike exploration film.
It’s a “consciousness” album that cares about the extreme beauty of the world, but also a message full of hope: to marvel and keep doing it. “Polar Star” reveals a new breath that is at once powerful, sensitive and luminous It’s an epic whirlwind that plunges us into the depths of a progressive jazz with rock, electro and sometimes pop fragments.
