ストックを発見！！ 自作システム"メカニウム"で有名なフランス・アヴァンギャルド界の重要人物Pierre Bastienの大推薦盤！！まだ80年代の正式なデビュー以前の68〜88年までの20年間分の初期作を纏めた貴重な音源集。現在では把握しにくい数種のコンピ提供音源も纏めらており、とにかくこのプリミティブ且つチープな"音実験"的感触はどのカテゴリーの音楽ファンにも体感して頂きたいです。マスト。
'Manipulating and experimenting in all directions, Pierre BASTIEN gets help from a lot of human-being (Percussions, piano, cello & accordion) but also from machines: toy robots play percussion, xylophone or even the guitar. The result is surprising, varied, funny, crazy but always very interesting. Part of the now famous collection Les Zut-O-Pistes, 'Les Premières Machines - 1968-1988' includes the artist's debut works. Starting with the simple 'Sans Titre', recorded in May 1968 during his school's occupation. The young man was about sixteen then. Then things continue in 1977, beginning of his actual carrier as a musician, later stopping this anthology in 1988, when a debut album 'Mecanium' was recorded. All together, here are fifteen songs (Among which six were still unreleased) with much talent, a little imagination, a good bunch of humour and a touch of derision. To be discovered !'
