Nothing evokes that Belle Epoch feeling for me like Faure nocturnes - refined, subtle, endlessly nuanced. But Debussy is great, too. (Avatar is "Reflets dans l'eau.")

That's if it's just my wife and me. If there's a group, it doesn't matter. I won't be listening anyway.

Never really listened to music while drinking absinthe.

But, should the opportunity ever present itself, I'd probably not listen to anything different than what I listen to regularly.

Serge Gainsbourg

he bought a rolls royce in cash even though he didn't have a driver's license to drive it. he simply kept it in a garage so he could have an $______ ashray. now that is a man after my own heart. i think bridget bardot drove it around for him once or twice. M-A-N MAN.

How would not having a driver's licence stop you?

Mike Skinner allegedly drove a rented Ferrari around Vegas with no licence.

I drink absinthe usually alone in my room, lights off and maybe some francincense oil on my shoulders and incense burning. Music would be something very silent and deep, hypnotic music. For me, absinthe is very deep and meditative experinece. I would love to try more social absinthe drinking but all my friends hate absinthe and prefer cheap moonshine or Koskenkorva (horrible Finnish spirit). Damn drunks.... :(

Arcana, Der Blutharsch, Deutsch Nepal, Dead Can Dance, Current 93, Coil.....
All neo-folk, dark ambient, martial and neo-classical music are fine.

Blood Axis & Les Joyeaux De La Princesse - Absinthia Taetra!
A record entirely dedicated to absinthe, mostly just soundscapes that picture absinthe and it's history in all it's artistic decadence wink.gif
Alltime favourite absinthe cd :)

Peace

Serge is the man... or should I say, Serge est l'homme? I don't think it translates that well.

Neo-classical stuff can be good, but it's a fine line between moody and depressing. A lot of the stuff on the Cold Meat Industry label is really innovative and interesting, but some of it sounds a bit too much like Viking War Marches which probably don't quite set the right mood. Ditto for Projekt Label, but replace Viking War Marches with Nail-Biting Mechanical Goblins having Sex (actually, CMI have plenty of that too... Brighter Death Now, anyone?). DCD are a good reference point.

I listened through the new Cocteau Twins CD set 'Lullabies For Violaine' which went down very well... as did the Blanchette.

PS - Welcome OKKVLTA. Cheers!

Try 'Paris Midnight' featuring Liane with the Boheme Bar Trio. It's a 2 CD set from Vanguard Classics (OVC 6017/18) including 50 french hits. Seems to complement the experience..

Given that your profile states you've only had the Pere Kermann, I understand your friends, and I wonder how the hell you can put up with drinking it! Damn well better be under heavy hypnosis to cope with that.

Give your credit card a good spanking and order some good stuff.

Welcome.

Hi everyone, I thought I'd contribute something people might enjoy with my first post here.

www.pandora.com

I've heard alot of the music mentioned here come up on pandora. Basically it's like "training" your own radio station. It has probably expanded my appreciation and awareness for new music 100 fold since I found it in November. It's part of the Music Genome Project, and it's free.

I am actually having a hard time finding some music, for that matter not sure what it's called.

So back in the belle epoch, there was classical and can-can dance music that I imagine was played at the moulin rouge. But what were the other types? Like, there must have been some other pop/folk music that poor people listened to. If you went to a cafe or where ever absinthe was served, and there was a person in the corner playing music, what was the name of that style? What were the instruments? Was there sining?
Dude, like what was Van Gogh's favorite jam?
I have searched all over the internet for belle epoch/folk/music etc. but no mention of good melodic folk/pop cafe' music.
