La Plaine des Respirs

(Tochnit Aleph - TA073) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

The latest works by the legendary poet, musician, and key figure of the French avant-garde during the second half of the 20th century, especially the 1950s through the 1970s. Known primarily as a concrete and sound-poetry pioneer, Chopin has also worked as graphic artist and designer, typographer, independent publisher, filmmaker, broadcaster and arts promoter; his use of early tape recorders and studio technologies, and the sounds of the manipulated human voice -- with a focus on the relationship of balance between order and chaos -- serves as a reminder that language stems as much from oral traditions as from classic literature.
