Luc Ferrari is one of the most important and original personalities in the history of French "musique concrete." Irreverent, psychosexual and always fascinating, Ferrari's work manifests itself in texts, instrumental textures, electroacoustic compositions, reportings, films, theater, etc. It is an honor for Tzadik to release two of his most important works from the 1970's, recorded under the supervision of the composer himself. Place des Abbesses, the first electro acoustic work realized at his home studio in Paris, 1977, is an evocative portrait of a small square between The Sacred Heart of God and Saints and the Pigalle of licentiousness and sex, two familiar Ferrari obsessions. Cellule 75 is an explosive, dynamic work for piano, percussion and tape, balancing improvisational spontaneity with the more exact writing of classical forms. The first U.S. release of this important composer.
