Label: Purple Pyramid
Format: 4xCD Box
A deluxe limited edition 4CD box set of studio albums by France's pioneering electronic avant garde artist, Philippe Besombes! Includes the dramatic electro-acoustic experimental soundtrack for the 1975 film Libra, plus the 1979 solo album as well as both albums by Besombes' progressive electronic group Hydravion.
Philippe Besombes is a French electronic musician of the 70s and this reissues four of his works from the 70s, both solo and with his group Hydravion. The two solo releases, Libra (1975) and Ceci Est Cela (1979) have both been previously released on CD by Mio, but they have been out of print for a decade. These include the bonus tracks that were on the MIO releases. The two by his 'electronic rock band' Hydravion [Hyrdravion (1977) and Stratos Airlines (1979)] have never been reissued on CD before. The first one is a definite minor classic of the scene and sound.
