Terrific LP re-issue: in the sixties Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier composed "Messe pour le temps present" as a ballet for Maurice Brejart. Colombier was a musical polyglot, he was astoundingly prolific and comes across as the consummate musical professional. Henry, of course, was something else entirely; his background was experimental, electro-acoustic and concrete music. Psyché Rock is the best of both worlds. Written for the ballet Messe pour le temps présent in 1967, it's since gone on to much greater fame as the theme music to Futurama. One thing Colombier and Henry had in common was that they were both concerned with musical shapes, with audio sculpture. Consequently, Psyché Rock sounds completely, absolutely great. It all fits together so well. This one is an absolute treat.
