La musique de J.J. Burnel pour Gankutsuou

Comme je l’ai écrit dans mon billet, Gankutsuou se signale par la grande richesse de ses musiques, qu’elles soient originales ou reprises de grandes oeuvres du répertoire classique (notamment le deuxième concerto pour piano de Rachmaninov – mais j’écrirai un billet spécialement sur ce sujet).

Fait assez rare pour être souligné, la musique originale de Gankutsuou est en partie signée par un compositeur français (enfin, franco-britannique), Jean-Jacques Burnel, surtout connu pour avoir été le bassiste et parfois le chanteur du groupe mythique The Stranglers, un des plus grands groupes de punk-rock britannique dans les années 70/80.

J.J. Burnel en 1979, avec les Stranglers

Ce fut pour moi une très agréable surprise, car j’ai beaucoup écouté les Stranglers dans mes années d’adolescence, surtout leurs tubes « No more heroes« , « Skin deep« , « Golden brown« , « Always the sun« , et leur reprise géniale de « Walk on by« . Je vous les recommande chaleureusement (tous visibles sur ioutioube).

J.J. Burnel a aussi été producteur pour des groupes que j’ai adoré à l’époque, comme Taxi Girl ou Polyphonic Size. Il a également mené une carrière solo, son projet « Un jour parfait » m’avait à l’époque séduit, dans son style mélancolique pop/new wave.

J.J. Burnel n’avait jamais composé pour un anime, mais féru de culture japonaise, il a accepté la proposition de Mahiro Maeda, qui se dit fan de sa musique. Le résultat est une série de chansons pop, nostalgiques, qui se mêlent aux musiques signées par l’autre compositeur de la série, Kasamatsu Koji.

C’est J.J. Burnel qui a signé la musique de l’opening, une splendide chanson pop qu’il interprète lui-même en anglais de sa belle voix douce et grave, « We were lovers« . La mélodie est directement inspirée de Chopin, l’étude n°3 opus 10 pour piano… qui a également inspiré Gainsbourg, pour sa chanson « Lemon Incest« . La mise en images est très réussie, ce qui en fait, selon moi, un des meilleurs openings que j’ai jamais vus :

L’ending présente la face rock de J.J.Burnel, plus proche de ce qu’il faisait à l’époque des Stranglers. Curieusement, cette musique, bien qu’efficace dans le genre, ne colle pas trop à l’esprit de l’anime selon moi. Pour qui n’aurait pas encore vu Gankutsuou, l’ending pourrait laisser croire qu’il s’agit d’une série d’action et de combat. Des combats, il y en a, et même avec des méchas, oui, mais ce n’est vraiment pas le sujet.

C’est donc l’opening qui résume pour moi parfaitement l’atmosphère de Gankutsuou, surtout que cette mélodie est celle que le personnage d’Eugenie, pianiste virtuose, compose spécialement pour l’élu de son coeur (je vous laisse deviner qui…). Elle sert également de leitmotiv, jusqu’à la scène finale, magnifique, mais que je ne vous raconterai pas non plus ici. Pour savoir, allez donc plutôt découvrir ou revoir Gankutsuou, j’espère vous en avoir donné l’envie !

    +1 Pour l’OP. Beaucoup trouvent que le chanteur déraille un peu sur l’anglais mais je le trouve du plus bel effet ce générique. Magnifique réalisation, comme l’anime d’ailleurs.
