Artist: TAZARTES, GHEDALIA
Title: Diasporas
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Remastered CD edition of Diasporas, Ghedalia Tazartes 1979 debut LP. Now available as an expanded individual CD, this edition was previously only available as part of a CD containing both Diasporas and Tazartes 1987 self-titled fourth album, which is also now available in an expanded CD edition (TES 089CD). In addition to the entire original release of Diasporas, this CD includes the first CD release of "Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra," a composition largely based on materials pre-dating Diasporas, originally issued as side A of Granny Awards (ALGA 036LP). In "Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra," Tazartes freely connects Raphaël Glucksmanns garbled voix denfant with intoxicating, slow-moving, and sustained synth chords, before jump-cutting into bird calls, dissonant arabesque strings, and eccentric vocalizations with a blinding sense of freedom. Ghedalia Tazartes is a nomad. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. He paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. Tazartes is an orchestra and a pop group all in one person: the self is multitude and others. The author and his doubles work without a net, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition. To hell with the technocrats of noise and the purists of synthetic culture; this music refuses classification and escapes control." - Alga Marghen.

Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"2009 repress. More than 5 years after the CD edition of Eclipse totale de soleil and Transportes, Alga Marghen finally decided to also reissue the first and the forth LP by Ghedalia Tazartes including both on one CD. Ghedalia Tazartes is a nomad. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. He paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. Dont become a black, an Arab, a Tibetan monk, a Jew, a woman or an animal but to feel all this stirring deep inside of you. The greatest trips are made in the deep end of the throat: the extra-European music open the ear to Ghedalias intra-European exotism. Where was music before music halls? Where was the voice before it learned how to speak? Ghedalia is the orchestra and a pop group all in one person: the self is multitude and others. The author and his doubles work without a net, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition, it escapes control, refuses classification. To hell with the technocrates of noise and the purists of synthetic culture. All art like all true mythology use a double clavier, playing nature and culture, feeling and the distance of the flesh, death. Off limits!" -Alga Marghen

Title: Granny Awards
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"alga marghen was the first label to issue on CD the 4 record LPs that Ghedalia Tazartes privately produced between the late 1970s and early 1980s, therefore contributing to the diffusion of this music among the new generations. At the same time Ghedalia Tazartes music defined the high standard level of the alga marghen label in its early days. These great recordings are still available in their original CD editions and no surprise that alga marghen has now the privilege to bring you the pleasure of listening to a previously unpublished LP recently discovered in the artists archives. Side 1 features Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra (i.e. Shut Up, Zarathustra) a long track constructed by several fragments recorded in the early 1980s that would have later composed, with different editings, some of the best parts of Une eclipse totale de soleil. On side 2 we find five shorter tracks titled Whatever, Works, Singing, Wild, My Rock Ghedalia. Recorded in the artists own studio in his anhydridic Paris, these pieces are based on materials pre-dating Ghedalia Tazartes first LP Diasporas and were re-elaborated in the early 1980s to be included in this lost work of art. Ghedalia Tazartes is a nomad. The author and his doubles work without a net, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. He is also one of the most original artists in the sonic art scene. Edition limited to 450 copies." -Alga Marghen

Title: Tazartes
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Remastered CD edition of Tazartes, Ghedalia Tazartes 1987 fourth LP. Now available as an expanded individual CD, this edition was previously only available as part of a CD containing both Tazartes and Diasporas, Tazartes 1979 debut album, which is also now available in an expanded CD edition (TES 088CD). Immersive, transporting, and deeply arresting music from the revered autodidact and audio oddity. If youve never encountered Tazartes before, this is an excellent place to start, welcoming you to a unique world of exotic, electro, and acoustic sounds, composed according to a genuinely far-reaching and individual agenda. In addition to the entire original release of Tazartes, this CD also includes the first CD release of "Whatever Works Singing Wild My Rock Ghedalia," recorded in Paris in the early 80s and originally issued as side B of Granny Awards (ALGA 036LP). Spread over five tracks, the piece features a comedic, exuberant vocal set to crackly 78 backing on "Whatever," turns blind corners into ethno-noise trance-outs on "Singing," delivers hyper-rhythmic experiments on "Wild," and closes with a jarring hardcore punk-out in "My Rock Ghedalia." The freedom of expression and taste for exotic, arabesque tonalities is a mighty revelation." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Tazartes Transports
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Remastered CD edition of Tazartes Transports, autodidact and outsider composer Ghedalia Tazartes 1980 second LP. This album probably represents the most original example of the artists poetical and personal approach to sound organization. The tracks for Tazartes Transports, recorded in 1977 at Tazartes own studio in Paris, are blends of stream-of-consciousness rippling electro rhythms, outer-national singing styles, collaged field recordings, tape loops, and chants. The musique concrete soundscapes and exotic atmospheres take on a perpetual sense of drift and magical imagination. The listener is spellbound from the start to finish, through the deeply evocative peal of church bells and swirling synthetic textures in track 2, via humid sci-fi scenes and alien avian chatter on track 5, and the lost zones of the closing stages. This edition also includes four "Assassins" tracks, originally released on the 2006 mini-CD Les danseurs de la pluie (TES 063CD). The first two of these bonus tracks were recorded in 1977, around the time of the recording of Une eclipse totale de soleil (TES 005CD), and consist of banking guitar feedback, unhinged hollers, and an unsettling piece of childrens screams looped against droning synth tones and electronic pulses. The second two "Assassins" tracks were recorded in 2005; "Assassin 3" is a mystical piece of ecstatic ululations and plangent electric guitar riffs, while "Assassin 4" feels more opulent, with plush synth pads set against strange, strafing distortion, rhythmic exhortations, and surreal, cinematic percussion. This edition concludes with a final bonus track, "Elie," a charming piano piece performed as a duet with Tazartes young daughter. Once again, Tazartes provides some of the most compelling, weirdly life-affirming music out there." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Une Eclipse Totale de Soleil
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Remastered CD edition of Une eclipse totale de soleil, Ghedalia Tazartes third LP, originally released in 1984. Far away from contemporary music intellectualisms and the works of synthetic noise purists, this album features a new form of musical expression and is certainly one of the most original and creative records of the 80s. The value of this work was at the time underestimated and only a few people had a chance to listen to this beautiful music. The record utilizes collage, Tazartes unique vocals, trance-ethno backing splices, droning organ, and childish naivete, in a spirit all its own. Originally conceived in two parts,Une eclipse totale de soleil is here supplemented with a 25-minute piece titled "Il regalo della befana" or "Une eclipse totale de soleil (Part III)," composed expressly for the original 1996 release of this CD edition. The original two parts are constructed from sung passages of Middle Eastern musics, drum machine noises, distorted signals, and the voices of small children. The newer third part takes some of the same sorts of cues but is more in keeping with turntablism or sampling culture, dipping into recordings recycled from pop culture. Tazartes music compiles fragments from a wide variety of sources in a stunning, idiomatic fashion, still undiminished by the passage of time." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Diasporas
Format: LP
Label: Dais
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Originally recorded in 1977 with a limited pressing in 1979 on the underground French label Cobalt, Ghédalia Tazartès debut album, Diasporas, quietly fell into the catacombs of avant-garde obscurity.  Tazartès himself, (a strange, nomadic character) played upon myths and legends about his existence and sounds – making him somewhat of a lost legend, trapped between a modern time and a surreal, simple age.  Inclusion of Diasporas on Steve Stapletons famed “Nurse With Wound List” only added fuel to the fire of this legendary album.  Traditional Parisian folk, frightening tape loops, and gypsy incantations …. Truly one of the most fascinating and mysterious albums ever created. Remastered from the original source tapes from Ghédalia Tazartès, an official reissue LP limited to 500 hand-numbered copies." - Dais.

Title: 5 Rimbaud 1 Verlaine
Format: 10"
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"Holiday Records presents the vinyl reissue of Ghedalia Tazartes 5 Rimbaud 1 Verlaine (2006). This is a great tribute to the poetry of Rimbaud and Verlaine made by a favorite French sorcerer, who exceptionally abandoned his typical imaginary language to reinterpret six small poems in his own way, jumping from one musical genre to the other and happily letting them crunch together in a childish, enthusiastic play. Recorded in Paris in his flat around the same time he recorded the wonderful Hystérie Off Music (2007) (HOL 074LP, 2014) and previously available in an almost unnoticed mini CD edition published by the French label Jardin au Fou. Available here in a remastered vinyl version - with an excellent 45 rpm cut made by SST in Frankfurt. Edition of 350." - Holidays.

Title: Check Point Charlie
Format: Double LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $34.00
"Born in Paris in 1947, Ghédalia Tazartés started singing when he was twelve years old, creating his own language. He began a professional career in dance, theatre, and cinema while still giving some occasional concerts and publishing a few albums, each one of them an acclaimed masterpiece. Recorded in 1989 and originally released by Aaya in 1990, Check Point Charlie is the first work by Tazartés conceived for the compact disc format and its different time boundaries. The result is a 60 minute long collection of layered field recordings combined into a polyphonic ceremony filled by his typical multi-tracked vocals, between a gibberish scream and the muezzins call to prayer. A unique record that -- after almost 25 years -- is finally enjoyable with the depth of sound that only a vinyl release can give." -Holidays.

Title: Hysterie Off Music
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
“At the beginning, Hystérie Off Music was conceived as a catalog record, an open field where the author could play with all musical genres and their stereotypes. But it rapidly evolved into an uncompromising clash of field recordings, sampled instruments, and Ghédalia Tazartès incomparable vocal eclecticism, made of emotional psalms and shamanic hymns. The encyclopedia of genres turns into a childish -- and sometimes scary -- play, and the song titles mislead the listener, introducing a completely new classification. Recorded in the early 2000s and released on CD in 2007 by the French label Jardin Au Fou, its now available in a remastered vinyl version -- with an excellent cut made by SST in Frankfurt -- for the best listening experience of this cinematic electronic collage. A true movie for the ear.” - Holidays.

Title: Repas Froid
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"An extraordinary combination of culled found and taped fragments juxtaposed against drums, field recordings and mystery noises, sound loops, birdsong, keyboards and emanations of Ghédalia Tazartès own throaty drones and voice propelled by hypnotic, ritualistic rhythms balanced on a razor-sharp edge. This is the complete work of Repas Froid; previously released on CD in 2009 as brief tracks of source material and a palette of various sounds. It includes archival and as of yet previously-unreleased recordings from the late 1970s and early 1980s, strung together to form two long compositions. A French musician of Turkish parentage, Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. Born in 1947 in Paris, he is one of Frances most idiosyncratic talents. He has spent over 30 years within musical practice and experimentation, letting his musical work wander from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Manipulating magnetic tape recorders into a rough collage and loose ethno-instrumental mulch, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, in a limited edition repress of 350 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan

Title: Works 1977-1979
Format: 4 LP Box Set + 10"
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $148.00
"4LP-Box with 10" Tazartes Transports, Tazartes, Diaspora, Une Eclipse Totale De Soleil, and Quelque Part Quelquun. The French artist and autodidact Ghedalia Tazartes who is born in Paris in 1947 is a true nomad spending more than 30 years within musical practice and experimentation. Ghedalia is the orchestra and a pop group all in one person: the self is multitude and others, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The extra-European music opens the ear to Ghedalias intra-European exotism. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition; it escapes control, refuses classification, diametrical to the purists of synthetic culture and technocrates of noise. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Utilizing magnetic tape recorders, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. This box concentrates on his early works from 1977-1979 and his four officially released vinyl-LPs plus a 10" of an unreleased work from 1978. All the material is superbly remastered for vinyl by Anders Peterson of www.ghostsounds.net pushing the overall quality and dimension in sound to an amazing new level and experience." - Vinyl-On-Demand.
