Milestone reissue! Recorded in Venice in 1961 by the French sculptor, painter, and iconoclast Jean Dubuffet, these recordings were originally released in a hyper-limited 10" box set that is all but impossible to acquire. An early progenitor of the avant-garde and musique concrete, Dubuffet's recordings nearly defy category and still sound innovative some 50+ years later. Dubuffet’s music is contained as raw and uncompromising: noisy, pure, crazy, exuberant, yet also focused and inventive. Dubuffet creates an impression of frenetically playful improvisation, yet each piece has a strong concept, and even a formEssential and unequivocal recordings from the founder of the Art Brut movement.
