Percupulsions Gymnorythmies 1
Remastered from the original Neuilly/UniDisc/Mondiodis/SM mastertapes 2012. 46 track CD. All original recordings. First Ever Official Reissue. 20 page full colour booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos. Ultra-rare French production music workouts that bare comparison to Bernard Herrmann, Jerry Goldsmith and Ennio Morricone at their best. Tracks from 'Percupulsions' Neuilly Ð MC 8002 (1970), 'Gymnorythmies 1' UniDisc (1975), 'Le Vitrail Eparpillé' Mondiodis (1976), 'Imaginations Aux Grandes Orgues' SM (1978). 'Avant-Primitivism and baroque lyricism collide on Patrice Sciortino's unknown and underappreciated 'Percupulsions'. Recorded late 1969 and released on the French ÔNeuilly' library imprint in 1970, the album is delightful, mysterious and strangely accessible Ð jarring percussion jostles with tape manipulations, abstract melodies, spacious disconcerting harpsichords and extended techniques. A few years later Sciortino cut the inventive 'Gymnorythmies 1', an album of polymorphous individualism intended to accompany contemporary dance/gymnastics (it even came with an instructional booklet). Both LPs are reissued for the very first with a raft of intriguing and rare extra tracks. Superbly remastered from the original tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos from the composer's own collection.
