Reissue is happening and it'll be available next January.Mode music featured on this record has been really intriguing to me, it has this attribute of taking you to the –from now– remote past. I felt emphaty regarding how a Vinyl Factory article stated some of its tracks as medieval electronica.

this album is bleeding for a reprint. one of the best library listens ever!

it comes out january 25th and is available for pre-order here: https://wrwtfww.com/album/lunivers-de-la-mer

Hello, Where did you get this information from ? Thx

there is a vinyl reissue coming first half of 2019 :)

Do you think that will be any chance ? Let us know

Brick my own
I keep discovering obscurities that just simply blow me away, and L'univers de la Mer from Dominique Guiot is a great example. This album first appeared in 1978 on the Chicago 2000 label, with artwork from Jacques Wyrs, same artist who brought us Eloy's Floating, Ange's Le Cimetière des Arlequins, and Klaus Schulze's Picture Music, the 1974 reissue of Larry Coryell's Spaces, amongst others. In 1979 it was reissued on the Auvidis label with a new cover (that includes a small excerpt in a small circle on the lower right hand of the original Jacques Wyrs artwork). It appears that Auvidis is simply the successor of Chicago 2000 (the Auvidis releases still bear the "Chicago 2000" name on the back cover even well into the 1980s), but when you deal with obscure library music album labels like this (Chicago 2000 and Auvidis doesn't have the recognition amongst library music enthusiasts as say, KPM Music), I am only second-guessing.I don't know much about Dominique Guiot, other than he's French, and he continued recording library music albums through the 1980s, but one opinion started his 1980s albums were disappointing compared to L'Univers de la Mer (probably because they were too '80s for that person's taste).What you get is great instrumental electronic/prog rock full of Mini-Moog, guitar, clavinet, and Mellotron, a little organ. I can't believe I found such an obscurities full of Mellotron like this. I also don't blame Andy Thompson if this album escaped the radar scope of his Planet Mellotron website. I've heard descriptions of everything from a more electronic Mike Oldfield right down to Goblin. I should also add on it reminds me of SFF (Schicke, Führs, Fröhling), as there's that symphonic feel that goes with it, but Dominque Guiot managed 98% of this album all by himself, except for the sax on one cut, and one synth solo. "La Danse des Meduses" has that synth bass rhythm that gets me thinking of Jean Michel Jarre's "Equinoxe V", but then it ends with some King Crimson-like Mellotron, one of my favorite Mellotron moments on this album. "Les Pingouins S'Amusent" features some really nice clavinet and Moog. The rest of the album is also great electronic/prog. It's too bad it was released as a library music album and not sold to the general public, this album really deserves to be in your collection. How did such an album escape my radar scope? It's easy! Because, aside from the 1979 Auvidis reissue, this was never reissued (no CD reissue, since the only reissue came during the vinyl-era). Plus library music albums do provide lots of hidden gems if you look far enough, and for all progheads into electronic and symphonic prog need this album. If you can find a copy, that is.

adventure time
Thanks to a YouTube posting, I finally got to hear Dominique Guiot's next release, La Dame a la Licorne (1983). It's a bit strange that there'd be a five year gap between albums, but there you go! But doing library music, there's no public expectation either. What I wasn't expecting was largely a medieval-influenced album, but as the album progresses his more standard electronic style does show. Unsurprisingly his Mellotron has long since disappeared, he mostly favored modern equipment here, although the presence of recorders and harpsichords give it that medieval feel. Better than I expected it to be, although the medieval nature of a good portion of the album will admittedly not to be everyone's taste.

Thanks for sharing! I 100% agree with you...curiously,we both had (in parallel) the same reaction: I also investigated a little last year, after be touched/intrigued by this work & arrived at the same conclusion. By the way I'm not a fan of J M Jarre/ M Oldfield (sometimes their music irritates me,sorry!)...but instead of this I strongly admire the electronic music of François de Roubaix, and I was searching for something that reminded me his authenticity /singularity/mastery in the intuitive-emotional approach to the use of old synth,with this great "underwater" feeling,without losing a sort of romanticism/emotivity ( "L'Antarctique"!!).... Well, "L 'Univers de la mer" captivated me since the first listening because it has that great evocative power,with a complete diferent flavour of course! (more symphonic,mellow...less innovative,striking,diferent instruments & de Roubaix's work is too unique & peculiar!) but in some way...similar sensibility/singularity is here! Very touching, great underwater/cosmic voyage,beautiful atmosphere,a sort of cosmic medieval flavoured tale,hypnotizing! 80's works of D Guiot are not "disappointing" ,on the contrary: check Lps "Plans & sequences" /"Lanscape " with Eric Mallet...very interestings! .
