TAZARTES, GHEDALIA - GRANNY AWARDS (LP)


"alga marghen was the first label to issue on cd the 4 record LPs that Ghedalia Tazartes privately produced between the late 1970s and early 1980s, therefore contributing to the diffusion of this music among the new generations. At the same time Ghedalia Tazartes' music defined the high standard level of alga marghen label in its early days. These great recordings are still available in their original cd editions and no surprise that alga marghen has now the privilege to bring you the pleasure of listening to a previously unpublished LP recently discovered in the artist's archives. Side 1 features "Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra" (i.e. "Shut Up, Zarathustra") a long track constructed by several fragments recorded in the early 1980s that would have later composed, with different editings, some of the best parts of "Une eclipse totale de soleil". On side 2 we find five shorter tracks titled "Whatever", "Works", "Singing", "Wild", "My Rock Ghedalia". Recorded in the artist's own studio in his anhydridic Paris, these pieces are based on materials pre-dating Ghedalia Tazartes first LP "Diasporas" and were re-elaborated in the early 1980s to be included in this lost work of art. Ghedalia Tazartes is a nomad. The author and his doubles work without a net, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. He is also one of the most original artists in the sonic art scene. In these last years when cheap low-level editions are produced by kitsch-on-demand labels which can nothing but copy, falsificate and propose expensive tasteless boxsets, alga marghen brings you the "original" edition of this wonderful music." (label info) Limited edition of 450 copies.
