Luc Ferrari – Music Promenade / Unheimlich Schon LP (REGRM 022LP)
|“Music Promenade” (1964-1969): Electroacoustic Music, world premiere for the Théâtre de la musique, March 16, 1970 “Hétéro-Concert”. Permanent version for four stand-alone tape recorders. A series of colliding realistic sounds and sonic images. Whilst walking, a man is struck by the violence of his surroundings. Nature has disappeared in a whirlwind of warfare and industry in the midst of which he encounters a dying folklore and a lost young girl. The “Installation” version is used to sonify a place in which walkers are free to choose their musical itinerary.
“Unheimlich Schön” (1971): Musique concrète made in 1971 in the studios of the Südwestfunk in Baden-Baden. Voice: Ilse Mengel. “How does a young woman breathe when thinking about something else?” To be listened to at a low volume.
