"This obscure album was composed around the same time as DE NATURA SONORUM during the mid-seventies, a particularly important and effervescent era for Bernard Parmegiani. Indeed, as if one can say that DE NATURA SONORUM is one of the best Parmegiani's "serious" works in terms of technics-sound-harmonic-tone, then there is no doubt that CHANTS MAGNETIQUES is his chef-d'ouvre on his "dark side", the "Parmegiani's hidden face" that few peoples knows nowadays. A collection of 10 united tracks under the title album name CHANTS MAGNETIQUES/MAGNETIC FIELDS - titled before Jean Michel Jarre's album - and musically, in summary, more experimental, more organic, more spacey in compare to his famous INA-GRM works. This reissue on CD for the first time will rejoice all music lovers from Edgar Varese, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Tod Dockstader to Musica Eletronica Viva, Nurse With Wound, Organum, Conrad Schnitzler. Official remastered edition from the original master tapes with the original cover sleeve." (label info)
