BESOMBES, PHILIPPE - LIBRA (LP)


"PHILIPPE BESOMBES was engaged in the French avant-garde music scene from the early 1970s. Conceived as the soundtrack (and, in fact, the ONLY sound in the movie) for the avant-garde film Libra, the music on this 1973 album ranges in style from electronic pop mixed with music concrete a la Parmegiani/Pierre Henry to psychedelic exercises, progressive rock, sitar raga, and fusion. By including a mix of rock musicians and electronic treatments, Besombes was a pioneer in a very new way of working. Bonus tracks will include three cuts from the Libra sessions that have never been released, and a lengthy, experimental minimalist prepared-piano composition will also be included."
