Bernard Parmegiani

Bernard Parmegiani was an acousmatic composer and monument in the experimental music scene. With his abstract electronic soundscapes he inspires countless contemporary musicians and composers. Pieces like 'De Natura Sonorum' and 'La Création du Monde' from the 70s and 80s still sound incredible relevant for our times and outclass a very large part of the contemporary music scene in terms of inventiveness and range.

** 2022 Restock, few copies available ** Here is a masterpiece of electronic music! French musician Bernard Parmegiani has composed Chants Magnetiques in 1974, one of the most sought-after Parmegiani albums -- a monster rarity which is almost impossible to find. This obscure album was composed around the same time as De Natura Sonorum during the mid-'70s, a particularly important and effervescent era for Bernard Parmegiani. Indeed, as if one can say that De Natura Sonorum is one of the best of P…

L' Oeil Ecoute / Dedans - Dehors
2014 Repress. Third release on the newly minted eMego offshoot Recollection GRM,  two pieces realized by Bernard Parmegiani in 1970. The former is full of negative space and low, coiling drones. For listeners whose only exposure to GRM came in the form of the first two installments in the Recollection GRM catalog, this material will come across as much less frenetic and more cinematic, particularly the beautiful, cosmic landscapes that make up the middle portion of the A-side. "Dedans-Deho…
