"Luc Ferrari conceived this work in 1977 as a sequence of seven individually or collectively improvised exercises for tape and any instrument or group of instruments. Never performed before, Exercices dimprovisation have been released by the GOL collective and issued now on LP by PLANAM. The seven exercises follow each others in a suite of growing intensity where GOL acoustic and electric instruments react to Luc Ferraris tape, lively re-interpreted by Brunhild Ferrari: from a more meditative form, the music turns into free mental spiraling sections to finally culminate in a live musique concrete drama. The tracks were recorded at Ferraris Atelier Post-billig on April 12th and 13th, 2010, a few days before the world premiere performance at La Maison Rouge in Paris. Exercices dimprovisation on one hand presents a new perspective on Ferraris music and on the other pays a panorama-like tribute to his rich and eclectic corpus; somewhere between T_ɬ™te et Queue du Dragon and Tautologos with a touch of Danses Organiques. GOL was formed in 1988 in Paris by Jean-Marcel Busson, Fr_ɬ©d_ɬ©ric Rebotier, Ravi Sharda and Samon Takahashi. On this record GOL play flutes, electric guitar, bass guitar, melodica, janotron, ocarina, nagara, electric guembri, vocoder and message box. This LP is the forth in the gollaboration series after records by GOL with Dumitrescu/Avram, with Charlemagne Palestine and with Charles Hayward of This Heat fame. The front sleeve shows a four colour wild collage by the French artist, film-maker and Ferraris collaborator Jacques Brissot based on photo sessions done by Myriam Tirler, who also shot the back cover and inner sleeve images presenting GOL members and Brunhild Ferrari in Kagel-Exotica-like appearances. The edition limited to 350 copies also includes an insert with the complete score by Luc Ferrari. Please note: this previously unpublished work revealing a hidden part of Luc Ferrari poetics is not included in the INA 10CD boxset. Only available on this LP edition." - Planam.
