***Very last copies*** "Luc Ferrari is one of the most important and intriguing figures of the last forty years, a pioneer of musique concrÃƒÂ¨te at the beginning of the Groupe de Recherche Musicales in Paris, and perhaps 'the only real artist among many excellent researchers' as someone suggested. With a very peculiar sensibility he creates his own musical world in which wit, sensuality, extreme sound realism, playful analytical abilities, social concerns, and love for good food are important and inspiring elements. No matter how radical his musical intuitions and concepts may be or have been, his music has always had a provoking but charming quality. Danses Organiques, presented here in its original 50 minutes version (an abridged 45-minute version also exists), could be a 'strange meeting between two girls and a tape recorder' and is one of his most unorthodox, lively and sensually charged pieces, recorded between 1971 and 1973 in a period when he was leaving the official studios to build his own independently. It was 'completely recorded on my small machines: I recorded the single tracks separately and then superimposed them to create an organic whole'.
The composer lends his tape recorder to two girls who are to meet and to start a relation and then builds his imaginary folklore music around their confidential dialogue, sighs and moans, with the addition of his deep observations on organ-ic music. The resulting music has a groovy rhythmic quality in its surreal synthetic development and is outstandingly modern with its similarities to some unacademical artisanal music made today with electroacoustic means. Maybe it is unfair to say this, but Elica thinks this is one of the most beautiful and intriguing musical pieces ever recorded.
