Jean Hoyoux - Planètes 2xLP
Deluxe reissue on vinyl of this much sought after release by Jean Hoyoux including 8 (!) inserts.
This 1982 Belgian ‘Kosmisch’ stunner was originally issued by ‘CRETS’ or Centre de Recherche et d’Etudes. The seven extended pieces form a course of ‘sound therapy’ similar in tone to Angel Rada’s ‘hand played’ explorations in rubato-rooted forms.
The largely tonal pieces – recorded using string and choir synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines, etc. along with a heavy battery of phasing and time-based effects-lands somewhere between a ‘library music’-styled mood excursion and a genuinely transformative mind melter that ranks as one of the more obscure entrants into the…obscure electronic music canon. (Keith Fullerton Whitman)
