Luc Ferrari - Music Promenade / Unheimlich Schön LP
Another chapter in the Recollection GRM series by Luc Ferrari.
Music Promenade (1964–1969), 20'29
Electroacoustic Music World premiere for the Théâtre de la musique, March 16, 1970 «Hétéro-Concert»
Permanent version for four stand-alone tape recorders. A series of colliding realistic sounds and sonic images. Whilst walking, a man is struck by the violence of his surroundings. Nature has disappeared in a whirlwind of warfare and industry in the midst of which he encounters a dying folklore and a lost young girl. The "Installation" version is used to sonify a place in which walkers are free to choose their musical itinerary.
Unheimlich Schön (1971), 15'40
Musique concrète made in 1971 in the studios of the Südwestfunk in Baden-Baden. Voice: Ilse Mengel.
“How does a young woman breathe when thinking about something else?” ... To be listened to at a low volume.
