The reactivation of the Made To Measure series continues with this CD reissue of ‘Geographies’, a very special album by the maverick French composer and producer Hector Zazou that features an orchestral suite originally released in 1985.

It showcases some of Zazou’s most exquisite compositional work, fusing a chamber ensemble, some classical and contemporary vocals, unorthodox pro- duction, and an ironical, affectionate take on early 20th century classics (think Satie et al).

With evocative song titles such as Cine Citta and Sidi Bel Abbes, and even a catchy folk-like tune, Vera C, this album is a playful voyage in time and space. In addition to the original 9 tracks there are 13 bonus tracks, entitled 13 African Proverbs for Vocal Quartet.
