Everything is the 6th album by Bordeaux-based experimental
electronic music composer Franck Zaragoza's Ocoeur epithet.
For this new full-length, Zaragoza quantumly pushes the
Ocoeur sound into the depths of synth-based ambient
enclaves. Zaragoza blends such "ambience," at the opportune
times, with his now trademark careening sound-design focused
beat work. The album's closing tracks, the 20-minute pairing of
"Dawn" and "Dusk," find Zaragoza tempering his sound to near
minimal to share his exemplification of long-form ambient bliss.
The beauty in these two works displays an archetypal signpost
to Everything's overall intentions: We currently, collectively,
have our heads down, gazing into a device, as any subway or
bus trip will attest. We tend to miss so much around us, and by
interacting through these devices, communication often is
somewhat cold and solitary. It's becoming essential more than
ever to slow down and engage with "everything" around us.
Zaragoza's aspirations for "Everything" is quite simple: for it to
be the soundtrack to the palpable interactions with your
environment and those in it. Learn more about Ocoeur
