Prele is a label of experimental music.
Personnally, Eric Cordier, i'm a musician who is interested both in experimental, tape music, industrial and folk. I'm an Hurdy-Gurdy player in the expe/rock scene because i love folk even if I don't play it. So I'm a great collector of french and european folk and traditional music from everywhere. Most of my collection don't appears in the database and i sometime add some items to it.

A highly varied record : the affordable pieces, in a more ordinary / commercial vein and of defined kinds : standards, blues, lap steel are rather placed at the beginning of the record. They are rather short. The surprising, original pieces not to say... See full review

The musicians compare themselves with Penderecki first period and speak about contemporary brutality. Well, it is a little inflated from them, but i consider that it tracks for these do-it-yourselfers of the sound and the experimental. Indeed, it is... See full review

The CD:
In a very "musique concrete" style made with Revox sliding tapes that give a very nostalgic atmosphere, it is necessary to wait for track 8 to listen to a "digital" sound. The second half is based on a big recycling of music : S Murayama,... See full review

Ambient Music made of stretched textures, cut by discrete cracklings. In the middle of these oceans of tranquillity floats some volutes of tape-music kind of "électroacoustiques" clouds.

Synth-pop, dark wave, EBM, Noisy pop, New Wave, DIY as recorded in a basement in 1981, but it dates from 2009 : Prurient helped by his hégéries. A record as it was believed but that no one do anymore.
