Gavin Friday has contributed a track to “The Devil in Love”, a soundtrack to the 1772 occult novel “Le Diable amoureux” by Jacques Cazotte.
Cazotte’s story follows the young nobleman Alvare as he summons Satan, who appears to him first in the shape of a dreadful camel, then as a spaniel dog and finally as a beautiful androgynous girl. Alvare wrestles with the temptation presented by this mysterious creature. Is the Evil One really as black as he is painted, and can Satan himself fall in love?
The contributing artists were handed “Le Diable amoureux” to read and then given free reign.
