CD, Album


Companies, etc.



All pieces are computer sequenced using digitally edited samples (with exception of untitled I/92, which consists entirely of synthesized sounds) in a kind of 'what-you-hear-is-what-get' compositional approach that uses flexible strategies rather than a preconceived idea.
Both structural and phenomenal listening approaches seem perfectly adequate, while I generally discourage associational listening.

The music on this CD is intended to be listened to at very low volume!

Total running time: 73 min.

An absolute masterpiece by the most challenging electronic musician of the 90's. This release has changed the view on music for a lot of people, this is the kind of very influencial records that marks time. Its estetic of extreme reduction, of perpetual quietness is something that takes you deep & far, travelling through a soundworld where a perpetual suspension is not used as a tool for a fake meditative feeling, but rather to elevate the listener in a different perception, where silence becomes alive. Bernard Gunter gives us the possibility to (re)discover the joy of mystery.
This is a true classic of electro-acoustic music, along the mastery of Pierre Henry, Bernard Parmegiani and Luc Ferrari.
