Alain Goraguer – La Planète Sauvage

La Planete Sauvage Alain Goraguer

In the past we had a feature that was playfully referred to as Seventies Soundtrack Sunday.

That got a bit embarrassing after a while, so here instead is an extract from a film soundtrack. It was released in the 1970’s. Today happens to be a Sunday.

La Planète Sauvage (aka Fantastic Planet) is an example of what can only be described as the “Franco-Czech bonkers” school of animation. Set in a galaxy far, far away it is at once a metaphor for class oppression behind the Iron Curtain and a plea for inter-cosmic understanding.

Or so I glean from the trailer on Youtube…

What is beyond doubt is that the soundtrack was composed by the great Alain Goraguer who, among other things, wrote arrangements for Serge Gainsbourg and has been sampled by J Dilla.

So come travel with us to the planet of the Oms and Draags to investigate for yourself…
