quote from GEPR for those interested in the style
 
ZED - Visions of Dune(1979)
 
An interesting project by French synthesist and composer Bernard Szajner. A kind of electronic zeuhl piece, a little like http://www.gepr.net/he.html#HELDON - Heldon / http://www.gepr.net/ta.html#TANGERINE - T Dream but with its own angle. The music is inspired by Frank Herberts sci-fi classic Dune and includes many luminaries of the French zeuhl/electronica scene. Klaus Blasquiz of http://www.gepr.net/ma.html#MAGMA - Magma contributes one of his typical chants/rants but fed through an electronic effect on "Ibad." The closest comparison has to be http://www.gepr.net/he.html#HELDON - Heldon though with layers upon layers of synth, winsome guitars, strange guttural murmers and sequencers everywhere. Standout track has to be "Harkonnen" a dark pulsating piece with http://www.gepr.net/ma.html#MAGMA - Magma -esque distorted bass and http://www.gepr.net/fm.html#FRIPP - Fripp ian-guitars. Visions of Dune is a nice little obscurity that will appeal greatly to fans of the French electronicists.

Hmmm... never heard of them, but I'm definately lured in by the inspirations from Dune Embarrassed as well as all the fantastic bands they have been likened to!

They are not in the archives? I was looking and there didn't seem to be any results. I have been meaning to expand my knowledge in the earlier French music... do you think this would be a good place to start?
