Artist: ACCIDENT DU TRAVAIL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"Twenty-four minutes of Ondes Martenot recordings by JULIE NORMAL (CRADLE OF SMURF) and OLIVIER (CHEVEU). Maximal repeatable sound beauty, "somewhere between the lilting decay of Discreet Music and the disorientating phantom flirt of Maryanne Amachers Sound Characters (Making the Third Ear)" according to Doug Mosurock. "Its an impressive, subdued work, and anyone looking to end their evening on a restful comedown should look within." -Bruit Direct

Artist: ACCIDENT DU TRAVAIL
Title: Tres Precieux Sang
Format: LP
Label: The Trilogy Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
Repressed. "Terrific record! Eight charged, intimate meditations by Julie Normal and Olivier Demeaux, playing a rickety ondes Martenot and an old church harmonium. Gripping, detailed, stately improvisation -- a bit like the ùrlars in classical bagpipe music -- which nervily mixes the sternly doom-laden with precarious, other-worldly wonderment. (The ondes Martenot is an amazing twentieth-century instrument -- beloved by Messiaen, for example, and Varese. The theme-song of Star Trek is a vocal forgery of its sound. “Jaime cette fragilité qui côtoie la capacité de te décoller le tympan sur certaines fréquences inopinément,” says Julie. “Je tiens une bombe dans les mains. Jaime son instabilité, son humanité.”) Wood, breath, blood, eggshells... on the night of a purple moon. Very warmly recommended." - The Trilogy Tapes.
