Si vous ne connaissez pas encore "Penguin Cafe Orchestra", si vous n'avez pas de préjugés musicaux, si vous aimez le jazz, la variété, la musique classique, un peu la musique contemporaine, les musiques folkloriques, la musique répétitive, et si vous êtes à la recherche d'un son différent de ce que vous avez déjà entendu, alors vous avez beaucoup de chance : vous allez pouvoir découvrir une musique inclassable et parfois jubilatoire.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A more straight forward half-penguin, half-Anubis affair... 6 janvier 2015
Par ewomack - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
The Penguin Cafe Orchestra always hovered somewhere between a folk band and a classical music ensemble. A unique blend of guitars, piano, strings, mandolins, dial tones, numerous sometimes indescribable drums and even twigs, they created very atmospheric and serene music that still defies categorization. Strong melodies overlay often sparse instrumentation of various tempo. Silence, or dramatic pauses, didn't frighten them. Though some probably wouldn't consider them absolutely musically groundbreaking or earth shattering, their recordings nonetheless flow so effortlessly and breezily that musicological concerns become nearly irrelevant. They seemed to create music purely for pleasure and succeeded overall.

A wide five year gap yawns between their first and second albums. Their second, titled simply and appropriately, "Penguin Cafe Orchestra," eschews the sometimes deliciously creepy experimentalism of their debut. The follow-up feels far more straightforward. No vocal lyrics, no meaty grinding dissonance, less electric guitar and even fewer electronics in general. Most of the album feels unplugged. A generally upbeat, danceable and hopeful mood pervades the entire set, with a few exceptions. The group largely followed this format on subsequent albums.

"Air A Danser," which opens the album, sets the mood with a flinging guitar riff that structures the song as various instruments take turns playing over it. As the title suggests, it's danceable. "Telephone and Rubber Band" provides an early example of sound sampling. Here an altered and repeating telephone tone becomes a catchy rhythm. The gentle "Cutting Branches for a Temporary Shelter" uses a traditional Zimbabwean melody. The album's longest and most tumultuous song, "Numbers 1 to 4," features relatively heavy drumming and an undulating rhythmic undertow with beautiful solo violin and guitar soaring over it. Infused with an ineffable longing, this one borders on the melancholic while also feeling pensive. Accordions bellow on "Salt Bean Fumble" with a lilt of Zydeco. Reflectiveness returns with "Flux" as strings buzz ominously over a simple guitar progression. "Harmonic Necklace," on solo flange-drenched electric piano, would fit right in on their debut. "Steady State" provides a fitting end. Chunky and churning instrumentation supports the reeds and strings floating above. It would provide a good soundtrack for the sun emerging from the clouds after a rainstorm.

The Penguin Cafe Orchestra carried on and recorded a few more albums before their founder, Simon Jeffes, passed away in 1997. Their second release set the mood for the remainder of their time together. Other permutations of the band have since surfaced and it pretty much endures to the present day. The half-penguin, half-Anubis masks continue to adorn their albums and their website. They definitely created a look and a sound all their own.

I bought this, on vinyl, a couple years after the original release. I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy it after a few decades, but I found that the music holds up very well. It's still a delightful collection of tunes.

You know, I can't think of another CD that my parents, my brother, my piano students...well, everybody that hears this CD seems to like it. It takes a bit of the taint off the term "easy listening."

Par mianfei - Publié sur

When I was searching for "new" music to buy after finding out from Joe S. Harrington that the commercial music of the eighties I grew up on was totally derivative and synthesised via technology that dated easily, I was unnerved and unsure what to try.

One recommendation that with hindsight I regret is Simon Jeffes and his Penguin Café Orchestra, from the late 1970s. Many writers, such as Piero Scaruffi, have viewed Jeffes and his group as very innovative and quirky. However, such traits do not come across at all on their second album "Penguin Café Orchestra" and indeed the music matches the hideous cover.

Much of the time, Jeffes and his band make pieces without a single memorable hook, riff or anything to attract the attention of a listener, and even more than on Music From The Penguin Café where there was a tiny bit of solidity, the record seems designed to imitate the minimalist classical composers like Glass and Adams who really do not hold up well today. It is very difficult to go around naming individual tracks on "Penguin Café Orchestra" because they seem to melt into each other with the thinly produced strings and piano that are merely marketed as a new style of music, when it really is just a shallow imitation like the commercial music of the eighties I have seen brutally criticised. Being weightless is not necessarily a bad thing: Joni Mitchell made at the same time as this her masterpiece Hejira in this manner, but she used poetry that made heartfelt stories, exactly the opposite of Jeffes extremely slight tone. Even the few vocals add nothing to the record, and all in all this is not an easy album to recommend.

If you like minimalist classical music, on the other hand, you might truly enjoy this, but for others it is to be avoided.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Happiness Is A Warm Penguin! 26 octobre 2013
Par Lady Fancifull - Publié sur
Well what can one say. Penguin Café Orchestra are a musical smile! Taking repetition, minimalism and excellent musicianship out of the high reflective, internalised experience of, for example, Philip Glass, this places such music under a warm sun, a beach umbrella, a brightly coloured fruit and punch cocktail in hand, where the days are filled with splendour and playful happiness

How can you not smile at music with such absurd titles as `Pythagoras' Trousers' and `The Ecstasy of Dancing Fleas' ? This isn't the sort of music that I normally fill my days with, preferring deep intense reflective musical journeys, but sometimes one just has to get one's face out of the numinous and giggle at musical high spirits!

Difficult to categorise this music - Amazon have it filed under Rock, I've also seen it categorised as New Age - 2 genres which would seem to be diametrically opposed really!

IMO it is neither; perhaps a new category Musical DaDa Or Music of The Absurd, to steal categories from Art and Theatre. This music is deliciously silly, a stream of bubbles and celebratory balloons

Telephone and Rubber Band and Cutting Branches For a Temporary Shelter are particularly broad smile inducing! Numbers 1-4 is the closest the Penguins come to `blue' - sweet and lyrical - like watching the sun set while you know that as soon as that happens someone is going to light a fire and start waving sparklers to announce a mellow party. And those dancing fleas are pretty laid back!

I'm looking at the humble rubber band with a new respect, and bow down to the masterful rubber band virtuoso of Penguin Café Orchestra. Begone pale violin and cello. Classical pieces will henceforth be scored for rubber band.
