Artist: BAYLE, FRANCOIS
Title: LExperience Acoustique
Format: Triple LP
Label: Recollection GRM
Country: Austria
Price: $43.00
Recorded between 1969 and 1972 (with one track featuring Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers...). "In addition to being a masterpiece of the acousmatic repertoire, LExpérience Acoustique is also a fine example of the musical research spirit. This work, a systematic exploration, investigates the true nature of the listening process itself. The composition of this piece, spread over several years, managed to tap into the potential of the analogue technologies of its time, producing a complex blend of unprecedented sonic occurrences. What emerges from this extensive work is a reflection on sound, in all its forms and through all its textures. François Bayle therefore invites us to a genuine listening experience and for the first time on vinyl, in its full version lasting more than two hours." - Christian Zanési and François Bonnet.

Artist: BAYLE, FRANCOIS
Title: Les Couleurs de la Nuit
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"Pressed on limited edition silver clear vinyl. Sub Rosa presents the complete version of Les Couleurs de la Nuit, as premiered in 1982, and one of François Bayles masterpieces. François Bayle studied with Stockhausen and Messiaen. He joined the ORTF Groupe de Musique Concrète in 1960. He later led the group when it became the Groupe de Recherches Musicales in 1966. Most of his compositions are electronic, and his first important work, "Espaces inhabitables" (1967) is suggestive of an imaginary world in which nature is distorted in a dream-like fashion. He later utilized natural and synthetic sounds in his compositions, such as the recorded sounds made in a Lebanese cave. He has stated that his purpose as a composer is to enable the listener to feel the motion and vibration of energy in the universe. François Bayle characterizes his art like this: "...my purpose was always the same: to compose with only images-de-sons (sound images); to show how, through pure listening in an acousmatic situation, these sound images move like butterflies through audible space and project a colored twinkling on the listener. Out of frame, this is a world proved by itself..." Les Couleurs de la Nuit was created for "tapes and computer."" - Sub Rosa.
