REDOLFI, MICHEL - Desert Tracks

Format: LP
Label & Cat.Number: Sub Rosa SRV418
Release Year: 2016
Note: This electro-acoustic composer from Marseille (who worked with LUC FERRARI, PARMEGIANI, or PIERRE HENRY) made field recordings in the Californian Mojave Desert (1987, with one of the first portable digital recorders, a PCM Sony) to work on the question if the light of a certain landscapes is expanding our perception of its acoustics; this resulted in four tracks mixing the concrete sounds with synthetic ones, creating a high tension listening experience with great sound effects..
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €16.00


More Info

"In 1987, Michel Redolfi hit the California Desert road during the Fall, to catch those hypothetical poly-sensorial desert tones. He visited the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, Palm Canyon and came back with an extraordinary album of early electronic music, sparse and bright to express the crude light and the divine silences.

Michel Redolfi (Marseille 1951):
In 1969, with the co-foundation of the GMEM, Groupe de Musique Exprimentale de Marseille, Michel Redolfi pursued his passion for electro-acoustic music at an early age. During the 80s and 90s he composed collaborative works with
Luc Ferrari, Bernard Parmegiani, Pierre Henry and Jean-Claude Risset. Resident of the United States from 1973 to 1984, he carried out his
research with several new music centers, including the CME at the University of California in San Diego and California Institute of the Arts. Also during this period he developed several collaborations with American
composers. The natural elements highlighted by technology are a constant in Redolfi's catalogue: many electroacoustic pieces stylize and orchestrate sound matter, recorded in remote locations (Pacific Tubular Waves, Desert Tracks, Jungle).
He currently heads a major studio in sound design, Audionaute, based in Nice, France.
