Artist: BASCHET & MICHEL DENEUVE, BERNARD
Title: 4 Espaces Sonores
Format: Double LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $36.00
"Transversales Disques present a reissue of Bernard Baschet and Michel Deneuves 4 Espaces Sonores, originally released in 1982. Rare 1979 recording of Bernard Baschet performing on his Sound Sculptures. The Baschet brothers are known worldwide as creators of Sound Sculptures, fantastic shapes of molded metal and glass, which combine the visual arts with music. François Baschet had always been fascinated by acoustics, by the relationships between the shape and material of an instrument and the beauty of its sound. Bernard Baschet was passionately interested in contemporary music and firmly believed that such instruments were the proper tools for modern music, for they offered, to the artist and performer, a personal means of expression denied by electronic devices. Together the brothers began to design and produce Sound Sculptures, which could also be regarded as musical instruments. Circa 1965, Bernard worked alongside Pierre Schaeffer as a member of the GRM (Musical Research Group) on the elaboration of what was to become Schaeffers Traité des objets musicaux ("Treatise on Musical Objects"). The Baschet brothers also created structures and instruments of all sizes, including bell towers, windmills, and fountains, using the natural elements of wind and water to make music. Bernard Baschet was especially proud of his pedagogical work amongst deprived and handicapped children, with the instrumentaium made up of fourteen pieces. Double-LP comes in gatefold sleeve." -Transversales Disques.

Artist: PARMEGIANI, BERNARD
Title: Rock
Format: LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $31.00
"The first release by Transversales, a French label based in Paris founded by Sebastien Rosat and Jonathan Fitoussi, is the original soundtrack of the film Rock, composed in 1982 by Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013). Parmegiani was a major figure of electro acoustic music and member of the historic GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) where he composed an important work of concert, among which is the masterpiece: De Natura Sonorum(REGRM 009LP). The work of Parmegiani, a virtuoso of the magnetic tape, is widely known to the public even without their knowledge, through the famous title he composed for the TV program Stade 2, for the French radio France Inter, and also through the jingle adopted by Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris (1971-2005). Bernard Parmegiani produced a large number of jingles, soundtracks, and indicatives, but Rock stands apart in his repertoire. He recorded it without any outside constraints in his own studio. On listening to Rock, one is reminded of John Carpenteror François de Roubaix: a work which mixes the sounds of the TR-808 drum-machine, Synthi AKS, Farfisa organ, and Clavinet. Remastered from the original master tapes; Includes exclusive liner notes. Transversales specialize in the reissues of long lost tapes, rare original soundtracks, and library. Jonathan Fitoussi is a French composer residing in Paris. He works on minimalist and contemporary musical forms. Hes also audio restoration engineer at INA and INA GRM. Sebastien Rosat is a French music supervisor working for films, TV, and advertising. Hes also a member of French electronic duo Sommet." - Transversales Disques.
