Another remarkable reissue from the hallowed GRM (Groupe de Recherche Musciales) archive in Paris - home to some of the world's most fascinating, advanced electronic music research. The 2nd GRM Recollection was realised in 1974 and 1976 by Guy Reibel (1936, Strasbourg, France), the first assistant to Pierre Schaeffer during his electroacoustic composition courses at the Conservatoire de Paris and a member of GRM from 1963 to 1983. Housed in sleeve designed by Stephen O'Malley,. Cut to vinyl by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Strongly recommended!** "Franges du Signe (1974): Franges du Signe, the third part of an electroacoustic triptych completed in 1973-1974, is the first major "purely acousmatic" work composed by Guy Reibel. Franges du Signe explores the mathematical idea of the limit by translating it musically, searching for unstable states of equilibrium. Thus, several conflicting tendencies or logics act upon the sounds. They overlap and fight, each one seeking to assert its trace on the phenomenon in progress, generating de facto an ambiguity that is unique to all phenomena that obey the "logic of the living". Granulations-Sillages (1976): Granulations-Sillages develops an idea glimpsed at in Franges du Signe: the existence of extreme times, at the edge of our faculties of perception, which only the electroacoustic music tools allow us to realise. Two natures of phenomena, opposed in all respects (the Granulations-Trails and the Tutti), alternate through seven movements that constitute the piece. The work is designed for six channels diffused in concert on a main stereo system facing the public and two auxiliary stereos (group of crossing speakers: front-back and left-right in the room)."
