"The first release by Transversales is the original soundtrack of the film Rock, composed in 1982 by Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013). Parmegiani was a major figure of electro-acoustic music and member of the historic GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) where he composed numerous important works, among which is the masterpiece, De Natura Sonorum. The work of Parmegiani, a virtuoso of the magnetic tape, is widely known to the public even without their knowledge, through the famous title he composed for the TV program Stade 2, for the French radio France Inter, and also through the jingle adopted by Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris (1971-2005). Bernard Parmegiani produced a large number of jingles, soundtracks and indicatives, but Rock stands apart in his repertoire. He recorded it without any outside constraints in his own studio. On listening to Rock, one is reminded of John Carpenter or Francois de Roubaix: a work which mixes the sounds of the TR-808 drum-machine, Synthi AKS, Farfisa organ and Clavinet. Remastered from the original master tapes. Includes exclusive liner notes. Transversales specialize in the reissues of long lost tapes, rare original soundtracks and library music." [Stranded Rec.]
