From discogs: Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of music producer and musician Laurent Thibault (ex-MAGMA). Her debut album is entitled “Galaxies” released in 1974, a very rare item indeed and a Holy Grail for most collectors of 70's underground French progressive. In 1975 she released Evening Colours [as Gateway] and a final opus still in 1975 called Magic Slows.

Wow, tough case. Obviously prog to a degree, but where to put it? It sounds a bit like a darker Oldfield at times, which folkier passages and even a bit of symph in there, so I think I'll try prog folk first.

I don't know what the other Zarts would think but if prog folk says no I think we may evaluate her. It's not Magma but I personally hear a bit of dark Zeuhl. 

EDIT: just on the first track...effectively there's more folk in the following.

The rest of the folk team haven't voted yet, but I hear more jazz, pop and ethereal electronica than folk.  She does seem to belong here somewhere but I'm not convinced Prog Folk is the right place...

I really enjoyed listening to her stuff, especially the second album which is all instrumental.
Her Best Of compilation is also worthy and is available on bandcamp BTW.
Great work historian!
