Jacques Lasry plays a whole set of spooky sounds on his own sound sculptures. Designed for public interaction with shapes and sounds, these cool little metallic things have a wild sound to them, and it's all acoustic, made just by them banging on the various parts of the sculptures. Some of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A cassette-only rarity from the glory days of the tape-based new age underground – but a set that's much more strongly in line with 70s masterpieces from the German electronic music pioneers!

Groundbreaking work from the Paris scene of the 70s – a record that's kind of post-prog, post-improvisation, and which maybe sets the scene for sonic experiments on the UK scene in years to come!
