Exemplary collection of obscure French synth music circa 1974 - 1984, all remastered and available on (180g) vinyl for the 1st time! Replica Records scout the little known nooks of early French synth music with this vinyl edition sourced from rare, original, and mostly unreleased recordings. Birthed in the democratisation of synth music around the early ‘70s, when some adventurous musicians were able to afford legendary models such as the VCS3, the Synthi AKS by EMS, the Mini-Moog, or the ARP 2600 and Odyssey models, Musiques Electroniques en France 1974-1984 follows a range of less commercially viable but, arguably more intriguing, trajectories of NWW-listed artists such as Heldon and Patrick Vian thru to cosmic downbeats by Pascal Comelade and Victor Nubla, and the outer space abstractions of Camisole, whose Dominique Grimaud coincidentally compiled the whole thing. An excellent testament to the pioneering, enigmatic allure and abstract mystery of synth music in its formative phase.
