|june 2012 release ; ... second issue in the recollection grm series, giving the boutique emego treatment to the 1978 “granulations-sillages • franges du signe” lp (issued on disc in 1994 by the grm) ... about which ::|
|... for my money, this is one the best non parmegiani / ferrari / bayle sets from ina-grm, mainly due to reibel’s almost exclusive use of disastrously keening, high-frequency synth blat as source material (listen to the sound-sample for a taste) ...|
a tweeter-destroyer if there ever was one, miles away from the often conceptually bogged-down epics that dot the ina-grm catalogue, ultimately much more nihilist in approach, favoring a pure sound-research spec to all of that jazz ...
... impeccable minimal synth keening of no maximum strength, tastefully re-framed (those of you that have seen the original cover will know what i mean) ::
... having this music in such a majorly covetable edition (printed inner sleeve w/ liners in french & english, excellent pressing) is a real coup ... highly recommended !!!

|franges du signe (1974)|
franges du signe, the third part of an electroacoustic triptych completed in 1973-1974, is the first major "purely acousmatic" work composed by guy reibel. franges du signe explores the mathematical idea of the limit by translating it musically, searching for unstable states of equilibrium.
thus, several conflicting tendencies or logics act upon the sounds. they overlap and fight, each one seeking to assert its trace on the phenomenon in progress, generating de facto an ambiguity that is unique to all phenomena that obey the "logic of the living".
granulations-sillages develops an idea glimpsed at in franges du signe: the existence of extreme times, at the edge of our faculties of perception, which only the electroacoustic music tools allow us to realise. two natures of phenomena, opposed in all respects (the granulations-trails and the tutti), alternate through seven movements that constitute the piece.
the work is designed for six channels diffused in concert on a main stereo system facing the public and two auxiliary stereos (group of crossing speakers: front-back and left-right in the room).
