"The new PERIHEL series on Karlrecords kicks off with previously unreleased material by GRM member GUY REIBEL, one of the most enigmatic figures of 20th century's electronic avant-garde. Limited edition 180gr LP (500 items) incl. DL code and liner notes by REINHOLD FRIEDL (ZEITKRATZER). GUY REIBEL (born 1936) is one of the most enigmatic figures in the post-war electronic music scene. He started out with a double qualification: he first became an engineer and then studied composition with OLIVIER MESSIAEN in Paris, the teacher of KARLHEINZ STOCKHAUSEN, IANNIS XENAKIS, FRANCOIS BAYLE, to name just a few. PIERRE SCHAEFFER, the director of the GRM (GROUPE DE RECHERCHES MUSICALES at Radio France), very soon offered him to edit and work out the famous Solfege-3LP-Box that was the practical part of his theoretical manifest "Traite des objets musicaux" and to codirect the class for electroacoustic music at the National Music Conservatory. During that period REIBEL worked intensively in the studios of the GRM. He did not only compose some milestones of electronic music, he also developed a very music-based theory of electronic music: he included his ideas of musical gesture and game theory already in the sixties long before anybody else discussed those issues.
