As the sound selector for Colette, Marie Branellec knows a thing or two about music. So does Michel Gaubert, the musique maestro behind the Chanel and Balenciaga shows. Together, as evidenced by their latest collaboration, “Colette Nº9,” they’re a force to be reckoned with. The first disc consists of their hand-selected tracks, while the second features what Branellec refers to as “a daring, cosmic trip” courtesy of famed producer Midnight Mike’s first-ever venture under the pseudonym Mickey Moonlight (think William S. Burroughs collides with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Brian Eno). Was there anything that stood out for Branellec? “The Supermayer remix of the Rufus Wainwright song is 13 minutes and 54 seconds of pure delight!” Recording it wasn’t easy, though. “Things became so complicated trying to get that track licensed for the compilation. We finally got it in the end, but only because of the creative forces that be—those who battled against bureaucracy for the love of music!” “Colette Nº9″ will be available at starting on February 25.
