"A double CD featuring some incredible unearthed material from Bernard Parmegiani curated by Franois Bonnet. Starting as a sound engineer for French TV in the early '50s, Parmegiani has established a connection between sound and vision which he would explore to the deepest degrees after joining Pierre Schaeffer's Groupe de recherches musicales (GRM) in 1959 for a two year masterclass. With his first works composed in 1962 and released in 1969, he essentially headed up the 2nd wave of sonic pioneers, following the foundational musique concrte of Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry into a brave new world of electro-acoustic (or acousmatic) sound.

On this 2CD set we find four pieces of immersive, visceral and shocking sound organisation marking the generational distinctions between his tutor's creations, and those of the next generation, now ready to inform future musical explorers." [Soundohm]
