More Info"Urban Sax was founded in 1973 by French experimental musician Gilbert Artman, a.o. the mastermind behind Lard Free. Driven by his interest in the relation between space and sound, he experimented with large groups of saxofonists, varying from 16 to 34 players, at times also including bass players, percussionists, vocalists and even dancers. An early experiment took place in the French village of Menton, where Artman placed the musicians on rooftops, in various streets, on squares, and in gardens. Though the total experiences of these experiments/events can't be captured on whatever sound carrier, several recordings were made through the years. 1978's album 'Urban Sax 2', again on Czanne/Cobra, is the continuation of the debut-LP. It features parts 2 and 3 of the pieces contained on 'Urban Sax 1', and shows similarities to the music of La Monte Young, Phil Niblock, Glenn Branca, Steve Reich and Terry Riley. This reissue comes with remastered sound and a booklet offering rare pix and liner notes by Artman himself."
