A walk in Paris somewhere between the 30's and the 50's made by a Japanese lost soul. "Montparnasse EP" by Yōran is a surreal journey into an era which has maybe existed but long gone.
A melancholic phantasy about a time you'll never know and can only smell the atmosphere.
Memories and flashes come from an ancient time, cobbled streets where heels crack far away surrounded by the tickle of a street musician, a classical dance class directed by some piano notes or an announcement from an old train station.
The cryptic french spoken-word infuses the extracts and sound collages taken from different French movies looped into a broken tape player. The result is one of the most mysterious and looked after Japanese 80's underground record.
