PALESTINE, CHARLEMAGNE - TWO ELECTRONIC SONORITIES (LP)


"alga marghen proudly presents two seminal electronic music radical realizations by Charlemagne Palestine. These previously unpublished pieces confirm once more how advanced was his Golden Research already in the 1960s, a very personal approach to sound which would have later become so influential for future generations. Continuous Sound, built by an ever-changing mix of adding and filtering white noise and simple sine tone generators, is the most solid sound construction that Charlemagne created in preparation of his lost electronic masterpiece L'Avventura, inspired by the Michelangelo Antonioni movie with the same title. Continuous Sound pre-dates L'Avventura of just a few months and with its suspended atmospheres and its deep sense of mystery represent one of the most fascinating sonic works by Charlemagne Palestine. Crown Chan is an electronic music piece created for a dance by Gus Solomon in 1970. Conceiving music for dancers gave Charlemagne the possibility to experiment and manipulate the reel tapes of some of his electronic sonorities. Edition limited to 380 copies, with an institutional portrait of the composer on front and back sleeve." (label info)
