Global music. Or “ultrascore”, as defined by the same Christophe Chassol: implying that its objective is to create in a kind of “enhanced soundtrack”, able to capture the most vivid side, immediate and comprehensive of contemporary reality.

Its stated influences range from Miles Davis to The Cure, passing through Steve Reich and Ennio Morricone; his works ranging from soundtracks for films and television switching to close collaborations with artists such as Phoenix and Sebastien Tellier. So much stuff. Ultra-attractive, ultra-challenging.
