What Philippe is saying about the album:
‘ A une époque submergée par la technologie et l’ère numérique, il est réjouissant de voir surgir et de reconnaître l’expression de l’artisan. Dans les films de Gerlando Infuso, qui auraient presque pu être réalisés à l’époque de Mélies, l’amour du détail, le soin apporté à chaque accessoire, chaque costume et chaque décor laissent pantois. Quant aux cadrages et à la mise en scène, ils sont l’oeuvre à la fois d’un peintre et d’un authentique cinéaste.
Je me suis senti instantanément familier de l’univers sombre, baroque et poétique de Gerlando.
Mettre en musique ses films intemporels et singuliers représentèrent un sacré défi, et voir ses créatures s’animer sur ma musique furent un pur plaisir.
L’auditeur attentif percevra peut-être ici ou là des échos de Bernard Herrman, John Barry, Ennio Morricone… j’écoute leurs musiques depuis l’enfance. Mais j’ai aussi convoqué, parmi quelques fantômes du passé Sibélius et Duke Ellington, quand le besoin s’en est fait sentir!
Qu’ils soient donc tous ici remerciés et crédités.’

' At a time overwhelmed by technology and the digital age, it is gratifying to see emerging and recognize the expression of the craftsman. 
In the films of Gerlando Infuso , which could almost have been made ​​at the time Mélies , attention to detail , the care with every accessory , every outfit and every setting give startling results . As for the framing and staging , they are the work of both a painter and a genuine filmmaker.
I felt instantly familiar with the dark, baroque and poetic univers of Gerlando .
To create music for his  timeless and unique film represented quite a challenge, and see his creatures come to life on my music was pure pleasure.
The attentive listener may perceive here and there echoes of Bernard Herrmann, John Barry, Ennio Morricone ... I listen to their music since childhood. But I also convened among some ghosts of the past Sibelius and Duke Ellington, when needed !
So they are all here thanked and credited . '
