Best known at the time as the keyboardist in the band of French singer/songwriter Bernard Lavilliers, François Bréant released his first solo album in 1979 on Egg, reissued in 2002 by Musea. Bréant's progressive rock roots show all the way through this fine platter of progressive electronic music with a jazz-rock twist, which compares favorably to contemporary albums by Edgar Froese, Alpha Ralpha, and Jean-Luc Ponty.

Harwood, François Bréant Tenor Saxophone – Jean-Louis Chautemps Violin – Didier Lockwood. This album was far ahead of its time. The sound is exceptional & the writing superb. I cannot speak to the origins of Mr. Breant's talent but I must say that in 2004, I still look upon this work as something special. It's quite atmospheric, yet it engages those intested in the more technical aspects of music. The technical limitations are scarcely evident.

Breant's musical flexibility was already known from the past and ''Sons optiques'' is another good example of his diverse music tastes in composition. His keyboard and piano work is dominant throughout the album and Breant explores the territories and limits between different fields such as Electronic Music, Zeuhl, Jazz, Fusion and Avant-Garde Music. The album cover with Breant pulling the film out gives us a hint at his idea for a sound and visual recording. Of course hanging out with a bunch of Zeuhl musicians over many years has to have an influence as well. A really solid album that Avant fans should appreciate.
