'Pictures of an exhibition after Modest Mussorgsky, 1874'. Classically simple. This dates back to 1975. Genesis. First through the discovery of Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, lent to me by the older brother of a friend (Claude Auberger). At that time I did not realize that this was a cover of a classical piece. Then, thanks to Bernard Bellot, a friend of my mother, an audiophile and music lover, who wanted me to hear the version of Pictures at an Exhibition orchestrated by Ravel. And this is one of my first positive approaches to so-called classical music. Bernard allowed me to discover Satie, Jehan Alain (the organ pieces), Pierre Henry and many others. He lends me an oscilloscope, a soldering iron, we build an amp that generated a lot of noise. He gives me advice about my first ' hi-fi stereo ' and in Switzerland (we're living in Annecy-le-Vieux at the time) we will buy a Thorens record player (TD 145, I think ; it's still working at Eric Chabert's) that we smuggle back home. Therefore, in a way, this disc is a belated 'thank you' note for opening my ears. All music by Christophe Petchanatz (Klimperei), 2011.
