Brocoli, FR

Seven early works by the celebrated musique concrète composer Michel Chion, composed before he joined the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) in 1971, with his characteristic style and sounds already present. The abrasive electronics and sanctity in Blanche prefigure 1973’s Requiem; Sonatine and Train de pianos are based on prepared piano improvisations; Habanera and L’Oiseau en Cageevoke La Ronde, and Le Ciel Tremble is the composer’s first melodrama. Essential listening for lovers of the composer and genre, and for anyone interested in the history of electronic and experimental music.
