Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained music
ian who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music
here is a dark mix of familiar elements – with use of cello, violin, clarinet, flute, bass, and drums – but often at a level that feels more electric than acoustic – mixed with keyboards and some guitar, yet also clearly processed a lot as part of the production! Away from the cartoon, the music
feels very spooky and odd – really more in a Pierre Henry mode than you might expect, although a bit playful from time to time. Titles include "Theme Gibi Classique", "Cosmogol 999 Carburant De La Fusee Gibi", "Ambiance Nouilles", "Guerre Music
ale", "La Planete A Poissons", "Faux Depart", "Fuite Des Shadoks", "La Machine A Pomper Dite Cosmopompe", and "Les Humeurs Geophysiques De La Plante Shadok".
