Mythologies is Bangalter’s first independent orchestral work, commissioned by choreographer Angelin Preljocaj. Last summer, The ballet aired a collaboration between Ballet Preljocaj and the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, which acted Bangalter’s score under the direction of Romain Dumas.
According to a press release, Bangalter’s score for Mythologies does not draw on his electronic and dance music background; in fact, Preljocaj reportedly approached him about the project just when Bangalter was eager to write a piece for a full orchestra. The 90-minute composition draws on Bangalter’s love of Baroque music, with some “hints” of American minimalism as well.
