** 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 Parmegiani's 'serious' works in terms of technics-sound-harmonic-tone, then there is no doubt that Chants Magnétiques is his chef-d'oeuvre on his 'dark side,' the 'Parmegiani's hidden face' that few people know nowadays.
A collection of 10 united tracks under the title album name Chants Magnétiques/Magnetic Fields -- titled before Jean Michel Jarre's album -- and musically, in summary, more experimental, more organic, more spacey album in comparison to his famous INA-GRM works. This reissue on CD for the first time will rejoice all music lovers from Edgard Varèse, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Tod Dockstader to Musica Elettronica Viva, Nurse With Wound, Organum, Conrad Schnitzler. Official remastered edition from the original master tapes with the original cover sleeve."
