Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch ‘Ravage’ LP
Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch returns with a brilliant third album for FatCat’s 130701 imprint (Max Richter / Johann Johannsson / Dustin O’Halloran / Hauschka).
'Ravage’ is the pianist / composer’s first standalone album since 2018’s ‘Époques’, following which she has been busy building a name for herself scoring an increasingly high-profile series of films. A powerful, deeply personal album that charts the process of grieving for a parent, Emilie describes it as “the most intimate and personal project I’ve created.”
Set apart from the swathe of contemporary pianists by the boldness and bite of her sound design, whilst adding an intricate, emotive instrumental performance missing from much sound art, Emilie is steadily carving out a niche for herself as a composer with a singular sound and vision.
Following recent adventurous composers like Johann Johannsson, Mica Levi and Hildur Gudnadottir, she looks set to break through as another hugely talented artist combining roles as composer for both film and her own wonderful music.

Emilie also has a track on Nils Frahm’s new ‘Piano Day’
