"Ghédalia Tazartès' music has always been a mystery. It switches from musique concrète to - existing or invented - ethnic music, from poetry to noise, or from loops and collages to sad and extremely beautiful tunes in a second, but it constantly is in flux and coherent. Hinterzimmer Records is extremely proud to release one of Ghédalia Tazartès' major works of the last 20 years, Ante-Mortem. Although simply named 1 to 23, the CD bears a collection of very diverse tracks, a couple of them connected in a thematical frame, others simply standing for themselves. What holds them all together is first and all Tazartes' archetypical voice. One could say that Ante-Mortem contains some of his harshest ever tracks as well as a couple of his most humorous ones. Generally it is more than exciting to hear that some parts of Ante-Mortem could as well have been created around the same time as his masterpiece Une Eclipse Totale De Soleil - his music sounds as timeless as it did 30 years ago. Nobody else ever sounded like Tazartes. Ante-Mortem sounds like Tazartes at its best. the bonus 7" contains those fabulous two Ave Maria interpretations that were included on the CD version as uncredited bonus within the last track."
