Knud Viktor – Ambiances / Images 2xLP (IDL01)
This new edition features a double-sided inlay with Jean C. Roché’s original cover notes, as well as more photos by Knud Viktor + a download code for the digital edition.
This reissue documents Knud Viktor’s only two releases on record – Images and Ambiances – both released in 1972 on the french label L’Oiseau Musicien. These records have long been out of print and are hereby made available again, gathering the two separate albums on this double-release.
The utmost care has gone into creating a reproduction that is as faithful as possible to the original works. These have been transferred from the original analog master tapes and have not been remastered to any other extent than to prepare them for the vinyl reproduction. Thus, Knud Viktor’s pieces appear with the same degree of tape hiss, hum and other “artefacts” related to his aesthetics, compositional process and tools.
All the works on this release was composed by Knud Viktor in and around his home in Luberon, in the south of France.
