MARCHETTI, LIONEL - Jeu Du Monde
"Jeu Du Monde is a collection of around twenty musique concrète pieces which spreads over more than six hours of music. Each CD has been designed as an audio film which tells a full story. The box set includes previously released works which have long been unavailable, reworked versions of digital releases, as well as unreleased pieces especially composed for this occasion. With the use of a complex sound palette (synthesizers, analog and digital manipulation, percussion, low fidelity samplers, radios, Revox, vocals, prepared piano, field recordings, etc.), Lionel Marchetti takes you through an audio landscape in which the acoustic imagination feeds on nature and its diversity: the desert, the upper atmosphere, mankind, night and day, fire, death, until you disappear into the ocean space... Includes 32-page booklet (in French) illustrated by Adèle Marchetti; Presentation texts by Denis Boyer, Régis Poulet, Frédéric Neyrat, Yann Leblanc, and the composer himself. Some compositions were co-written with Yôko Higashi and Olivier Capparos. Seijiro Murayama, Sébastien Églème, Isabelle Duthoit, Patrick Charbonnier are also featured.
Lionel Marchetti is a French composer of musique concrète and an improviser (various analog and digital electronic instruments and modified speakers). He also writes poetry and essays on the art of musique concrète, as an artist working within the genre. His musique concrète works follow in the steps of composers such as Pierre Henry, Bernard Parmegiani, and Michel Chion." - Sonoris.
