Very extreme stuff from LEJEUNE, kind of theatre-plays & weird fairy-tales stories with noises, classic & jazzy impro-elements & lots of vocal material that sounds like a bizarre Opera.

"Subtitled "Ou les Peripeties des Ubu". Described as a "Funamburlesquerie en 14 sequences", based around the texts of Alfred Jarry (for soprano, mezzo-soprano, baritone, saxophones and stereo tape). "Most of his pieces are more or less connected with vocality. Pure and barbarous, the voice which speaks and sings, which laughs and grows angry, which is carried away on a wave of eloquence and emotion, has become an essential component of his theatrical outlook. His 'motely' and lyrical language move like 'a character passing through a series of different landscapes'." "In the world of electro-acoustic music, Lejeune has a place of his own. He is perhaps the only person in this musical galaxy to speak, not without humour, the language of the fairy tale and of dreams, of childhood and of love, of gluttony and eroticism." [from the liner notes]
