Sebastien Roux- Revers Ouest - Room 40 - CD

Super talented young french artist Sebasien Roux (with various guests on Cello , prepared piano , drums and voices) on an all out Concrete frenzy , one of my favourite releases so far this year. I am really enjoying this new generation of Acousmatic/concrete composers who have being emerging for the last 10 years , the compositions have an extra edge and this is is a perfect example totally picking up where INA-GRM left off , and I am talking about the GRM vinyl series that were such instant classics. Extremely refined and yet sometimes even aggressive atmospheric , great compositions ! Highest recommendations !!!


Fernando Grillio / Dumitrscu / Nemescu / Cazaban / Surianu - Electrecord 2XLP

The fantastic Fernando Grillio teaming up with all star Romanian composers , Iancu Dumitrescu , Octavian Nemescu, Costin Cazaban , Horia Surianu.
Truly on my mind Grillio was the only real candidate to perform these pieces.
Grillio is well known for his technical accomplishment and one of the rare to accomplish such sonic detail and timbral finesse I can imagine that these pieces were written with Grillio specifically in mind.
Double bass , prepared pianos ,gongs ,Crystals ,Synths ,saws and Cobza (Romanian luth)
