More Info

We got original / new copies of this classic "Text-Sound Composition"- or "Poesie Sonore"- record with five recordings made 1970-1973 ("The Trilogy of Vocal Energy" as the main piece), where HANSON uses mainly female voice-material & weird electronic sounds to create highly original and obscure stuff. The compositions are seen as an art-form or area of expressions between poetry and music, working with the tape-recorder instead of the typewriter. Important for those compositions are the three parameters "Use of non-semantic oral language information" (which also means that linguistic micro-particles & pre-linguistic sounds are used), "Time manipulation", and "Polyphony" (multilayering of sounds). The vocal material here is processed heavily and full of emotional content, very unusual blocks or patterns of sounds are build, a beautiful LP which still doesn't sound old or outdated today.
