New Release: Air – ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’

 

Based on Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon), the classic silent film by Georges Méliès in 1902, French duo AIR have created a full album inspired by the film. The result is a stunning body of cinematic instrumentals, adding an eerie, otherworldly life to Méliès’ work, which is already full of so much character, color, and peculiarity.
