Artist: BASCHET & MICHEL DENEUVE, BERNARD
Title: 4 Espaces Sonores
Format: Double LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $36.00
"Transversales Disques present a reissue of Bernard Baschet and Michel Deneuves 4 Espaces Sonores, originally released in 1982. Rare 1979 recording of Bernard Baschet performing on his Sound Sculptures. The Baschet brothers are known worldwide as creators of Sound Sculptures, fantastic shapes of molded metal and glass, which combine the visual arts with music. François Baschet had always been fascinated by acoustics, by the relationships between the shape and material of an instrument and the beauty of its sound. Bernard Baschet was passionately interested in contemporary music and firmly believed that such instruments were the proper tools for modern music, for they offered, to the artist and performer, a personal means of expression denied by electronic devices. Together the brothers began to design and produce Sound Sculptures, which could also be regarded as musical instruments. Circa 1965, Bernard worked alongside Pierre Schaeffer as a member of the GRM (Musical Research Group) on the elaboration of what was to become Schaeffers Traité des objets musicaux ("Treatise on Musical Objects"). The Baschet brothers also created structures and instruments of all sizes, including bell towers, windmills, and fountains, using the natural elements of wind and water to make music. Bernard Baschet was especially proud of his pedagogical work amongst deprived and handicapped children, with the instrumentaium made up of fourteen pieces. Double-LP comes in gatefold sleeve." -Transversales Disques.

Artist: BAYLE, FRANCOIS
Title: Electrucs!
Format: LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $32.00
"Transversales Disques present Electrucs !, a new release of never-released music by Francois Bayle. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the GRM, composer Bayle introduces some of his unpublished archives; pieces include the title composition, "Electrucs !" (1974) composed on a 1970s Synthi AKS synthesizer like an imaginary soundtrack, "Foliphonie" (1974) inspired by La Grande Polyphonie (1978), and "Marpège" (1995), dedicated to Bernard Parmegiani. Also included is "Cinq Dessins En Rosace" (1973). Born in 1932 in Tamatave, Madagascar, where he lived for 14 years, Bayle is a major figure of electro-acoustic music and member of Pierre Schaeffers historic Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM), formed in Paris in 1958. In 1975, the GRM was integrated with the new Institut National de lAudiovisuel (INA) with Bayle as its head, a post he held until 1997, bringing invaluable contributions to the opening of musical research in these original innovative institutions. Ever since his first productions, Lexpérience Acoustique (1971) Bayle has developed through a great variety of formats and designed the Acousmonium, a sound diffusion system used originally by the GRM. He also originated the record series Collection INA-GRM, and continues to organize concerts and support the development of technologically advanced musical instruments (Syter, GRM Tools, etc.)." - Transversales Disques.

Artist: DE ROUBAIX, FRANCOIS
Title: Le Saut De LAnge/R.A.S
Format: LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $32.00
"Never released before on LP, here are the complete original soundtracks of French cult film composer François de Roubaix for director Yves Boisset. Two movies that embody the two sides of Francois de Roubaixs approach to recording. For Le Saut De LAnge (1971) the self-taught composer wrote an orchestration for some fifty musicians playing strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion with two distinct solo instruments alternating the main theme: Indian sitar on the one hand and accordion on the other. This beautiful score creates the seam that binds Bangkok to Marseille, the two places where the action takes place. Le Saut De LAnge was originally released as a 7" in 1971. R.A.S (1973) was recorded on a 8-track tape recorder, in François de Roubaixs home studio rue de Courcelle, where most of his 70s scores were recorded. The result is a mix of military-march rhythms, rolls on the snare-drum with sounds of Synthi AKS synthesizer: de Roubaix invented a modern sound for this contemporary-history tragedy. Includes extensive liner notes." - Transversales Disques.

Artist: PARMEGIANI, BERNARD
Title: Mémoire Magnétique, Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $32.00
"Transversales Disques announces the release of Bernard Parmegianis Mémoire Magnétique, Vol. 1. Spanning 1966-1990, this is a revelatory collection of never-released commercial and secret music by electronic music pioneer Parmegiani. Since the late 50s, Bernard Parmegiani, a major figure of electroacoustic music and a founding member of GRM has created some sixty pieces. From the start, Parmegianis work was closely linked to the screen, with dozens of documentaries, films, long features, animation films but also musical pieces for dance, stage or television. If many of his pieces are landmarks in the history of electro-acoustic music (De Natura Sonorum (1978), La Roue Ferris (1971)), his application of music compositions is strongly embedded in the subconscious landscape of the French public (Stade 2, Roissy CDG Paris Airport...). The first volume of this compilation allows one to discover some of these lost tapes and unpublished recordings which were composed for the screen or the performing arts." - Transversales Disques.

Artist: PARMEGIANI, BERNARD
Title: Rock
Format: LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Country: France
Price: $31.00
"The first release by Transversales, a French label based in Paris founded by Sebastien Rosat and Jonathan Fitoussi, is the original soundtrack of the film Rock, composed in 1982 by Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013). Parmegiani was a major figure of electro acoustic music and member of the historic GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) where he composed an important work of concert, among which is the masterpiece: De Natura Sonorum(REGRM 009LP). The work of Parmegiani, a virtuoso of the magnetic tape, is widely known to the public even without their knowledge, through the famous title he composed for the TV program Stade 2, for the French radio France Inter, and also through the jingle adopted by Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris (1971-2005). Bernard Parmegiani produced a large number of jingles, soundtracks, and indicatives, but Rock stands apart in his repertoire. He recorded it without any outside constraints in his own studio. On listening to Rock, one is reminded of John Carpenteror François de Roubaix: a work which mixes the sounds of the TR-808 drum-machine, Synthi AKS, Farfisa organ, and Clavinet. Remastered from the original master tapes; Includes exclusive liner notes. Transversales specialize in the reissues of long lost tapes, rare original soundtracks, and library. Jonathan Fitoussi is a French composer residing in Paris. He works on minimalist and contemporary musical forms. Hes also audio restoration engineer at INA and INA GRM. Sebastien Rosat is a French music supervisor working for films, TV, and advertising. Hes also a member of French electronic duo Sommet." - Transversales Disques.
