TAZARTES, GHEDALIA - DIASPORAS (CD)


"New remastered version! New bonus track! New remastered CD edition of 'Diasporas', Ghedalia Tazartes first LP, presented here in its integral original length. Also included is the first CD edition of 'Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra' (previously issued as side A of 'Granny Awards' LP), largely based on materials pre-dating Ghédalia debut LP 'Diasporas'. In 'Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra' Ghédalia Tazartes is freely connecting the garbled 'voix d'enfant' of Raphaël Glucksmann 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. Ghédalia 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 The greatest trips were made in the deep end of the throat: the extra-European music open the ear to Ghédalia's intra-European exoticism. Where was music before music halls? Where was the voice before it learned how to speak? Ghédalia 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 technocrats 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!" (label info)
