Haunting experimental recordings made at Belgium’s IPEM, mastered from original tapes, spanning unearthly electro-acoustic, drone and concrète compositions recorded between 1958 and 1999 and “distinguished by a certain gothic or dark mittel European sensibility” that really pushes the buttons of our friends at Boomkat. Eighteen mostly unreleased tracks by Lucien Goethals, Didier Gazelle, Louis De Meester, David Van de Woestijne, Stefan Beyst, Helmut Lachenmann, Boudewijn Buckinx, Karel Goeyvaerts, Emmanuel Van Weerst, Peter Beyls, Raoul De Smet, Frank Nuyts, Ricardo Mandolini, Peter Schuback, Stephen Montague and Yves Knockaert. In Dutch and English, the 88-page LP-sized book offers in-depth history, photos, and essays by alumni and professors on the development and contributions of this lesser known counterpart to the esteemed GRM, Studio Für Elektronische Musik, or Studio di Fonologia Musicale.
