Monumental symphonic versions of Carl Craig's' classic material, re-enforced and magnified by Les Siecles Orchestra. Iconic French conductor François-Xavier Roth is at the helm of the symphony whilst InFiné mainstay Francesco Tristano supports on piano. From an initial recording in 2010, the project evolved into a full album that has been tweaked further in the studio by Craig himself. The re-works reveal the timelessness of "At Les" and "Darkness" through tense yet fragile new arrangements, along with two original compositions by Tristano – "Barcelona Trist" and "The Melody." Versus first took form as a captivating live concert on May 18, 2008 at Paris' Cité de la Musique, featuring this very same line-up. The hedonism of club culture made a rare incursion into the hallowed grounds of more serious traditional music, merging the vocabularies and syntaxes of two genres that seem to be from their own faraway galaxies, but actually turned out to be more porous than expected as they collided into one another.
