Musique Tachiste (Limited Edition)
Warning: Last items in stock!
As the debut release on Finders Keepers’ new experimental/jazz/avant-garde imprint, Cacophonic release the first in a series of rare records by French experimentalist Michel Magne. One of the very earliest full-length French concept albums - part rad- ical manifesto, part pantomime. This anti-intellectual "physical" reaction to the bourgeoning musique concrete movement combines found sounds and industrial noise with piano jazz alongside impos- ing avant-garde orchestral elements alongside Magne's own ham- mered cimbalom flourishes.
This unique debut LP also provides an early insight into a fruitful soundtrack/conceptual jazz career collab- orating with Jean-Claude Vannier, Martal Solal and Artie Kaplan as well as founding the French Strawberry Studio at Cha^teau d' He´rouville where French groups like Magma, Catherine Ribeiro, Brigitte Fontaine and Ange shared a diary with Terry Riley and Pink Floyd.
