HENRY, PIERRE - ODYSSEE (10CD)


"A really well-titled collection - given that it features the most important steps in the long musical journey of Pierre Henry - easily one of the most important electronic musicians of the 20th Century! The package offers a heck of a lot of amazing music for the price - and is very heavy on Henry's crucial 60s recordings - including both his funky analogue grooves, and his much more abstract sonic compositions! Much of this material has been issued over the years, but never in a package this complete - and the depth of the sounds here is stunning - a set that should be given as a textbook to anyone who ever thinks about making any sort of electronic music. Works include "Messe De Liverpool (1967)", "Pierres Reflechies (1982)", "Coexistence (1958)", "Mouvement Rhythm Etude (1970)", "La Noire A Soixante/Granulometrie (1967)", "Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir (1963)", "Le Voyage (1962)", "Futuristie (1975)", "Messe Pour Le Temps Present (1967)", "Le Xeme Remix (1998)", "Envol (2010)", "L'Art De La Fugu Odyssee (2011)", "Pulsations (2007)", and the previously unreleased "Le Fil De La Vie", which features cool shakuhachi!"
