More Info

"Released by Pathe Marconi in 1975 and housed in a fantastic surrealist cover designed by his father, Russian painter/art director Georges Wakhevitch, this album marks the debut of Wakhevitch's long-standing collaboration with american dancer/choreographer Carolyn Carlson. It also shows the composer's progression into a more esoteric and lyrical grounds: a departure from the violence of his first three albums into quieter yet equally dark and mysterious regions. Divided in two sides (called "CORNERSTONE"/"LES FOUS D'OR") the whole record oozes a dreamy, mysterious, surrealist atmosphere enhaced by the spoken word introductions that open a series of mesmerising electronic pieces which range from the gentle to the hypnotic. Animal sounds, ritual horns, wordless vocals and assorted metal banging and scrapping add to the whole mix for a landmark sound that will evolve in future albums. Six different pieces that take off where Hathors' 'Aurore' left before moving into a crazy and disjointed landscape that echoes the crazyness of Docteur Faust yet in a subtle, stranger, more warped way. Strictly limited to 500 copies on transparent clear vinyl. Single cover reproducing the original 1975 artwork. Includes insert with liner notes reproduction of the original Les Fous d'Or insert."
