The Parisian synth head will appear on the Seattle label in November.
Fitoussi is a French composer and synth wiz who recently released an LP on Versatile. His Further effort, Imaginary Lines, was inspired by a quote from Rebecca Solnit about the idea of constellations—applying manmade patterns to things that already exist in nature. The record was made with an EMS Synthi AKS and a Yamaha YC45D, processed through tape echo and fed through a "metallic resonator" similar to an Ondes Martenot.
"This idea that the constellations are an imaginary representation that man drew in the sky to serve as landmarks in space and on Earth is greatly appealing to me," says Fitoussi. "And works very well with the story behind this album, on which each song title bears the name of a constellation.
"With Imaginary Lines, I wanted to work with this idea as its core; on one hand geometrical and linear, like the shape of the constellations, characterized by the use of repetitive sequences, and on the other hand, through sections of improvised organ to evoke the more spiritual dimension, and l'invitation au voyage."
