Various – An Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music / Fifth A-Chronology 1920-2007
The fifth volume of seven published
from 2001 to 2011, curated, noted and edited
by Guy Marc Hinant.
Here I am, for the fifth time, facing this impossible task no one has asked me to do. How can one bring together the history of electronic and concrete music to the history of noise music? For this volume, I want to highlight pieces illustrating a technique (Claude Ballif's Points,Mouvements), a country (Shur, Op. 15 by Alireza Mashayekhi), a studio (Helmut Lachenmann at the IPEM), there are also historic (François Bernard Mâche's Prélude), and radical (Spectrum Ripper by Masonna) works that have ripped apart ancient definitions. All this organized with INTERNATIONALISM in mind and, for once, a focus on the voice - not as sung words, their traditional facet in music (from pop songs to lieder and operas), but as the word itself, recited, distorted, rendered abstract or disaggregated and screamed (the incantation so often a part of rock and noise music).
Sub Rosa presents the fifth volume of the highly-acclaimed and successful Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music series. This installment highlights pieces illustrating a technique (Claude Ballif's "Points, Mouvements"), a country ("Shur, Op. 15" by Alireza Mashayekhi), a studio (Helmut Lachenmann at the IPEM), and historic (François Bernard Mâche's "Prélude"), and radical ("Spectrum Ripper" by Masonna/Yamazaki "Maso" Takushi) works that have ripped apart ancient definitions. All this organized with internationalism in mind and, for once, a focus on the voice -- not as sung words, their traditional facet in music (from pop songs to lieder and operas), but as the word itself, recited, distorted, rendered abstract or disaggregated and screamed (the incantation so often a part of rock and noise music). Like the previous four volumes, this fifth installment is an absolute must for anyone interested in the roots and history of electronic music, with many previously unpublished, rare tracks comprising more than 2 ½ hours of music. The 2CD comes in a deluxe digipack sleeve with an extensive 54-page booklet. The Jazz Loft
