Repas Froid

(Pan - PAN17) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Tanzprocesz - TP7) Used CD $10.00

An extraordinary combination of culled, found, and taped fragments juxtaposed against drums, field recordings and mystery noises, sound loops, birdsong, keyboards and Tazartès's throaty drones and voice propelled by hypnotic, ritualistic rhythms balanced on a razor sharp edge. Pan's LP is the complete work of Repas Froid, including archival and previously unreleased recordings from the late 1970s and early 1980s, strung together to form two long compositions (the CD edition on Tanzprocesz is brief tracks of source material and a palette of various sounds). A French musician of Turkish parentage, Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. Born 1947 in Paris, he's one of France's most idiosyncratic talents. He has spent over 30 years within musical practice and experimentation, letting his musical work wander from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Utilizing magnetic tape recorders in a rough collage and loose ethno-instrumental mulch, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. 140-gram vinyl, color jacket, silkscreened PVC sleeve. Edition of 500.
