Pierre Henry
Orphée Ballet
Stock expected to arrive Friday 14.09.18. Limited rerun of a musique concrete masterpiece and one of Pierre Henry's hardest-to-scoop - "Orphee Ballet”. Scored to the choreography of Maurice Bejart, moving effortlessly with extended, reverberant passages and flutters of proto-industrial rhythm - stark spoken word intermittently throwing you a rope as you drown in this mass of ideas. Arguably, his most imaginative work(!) and outside of all the trappings of the beard-sect, this record is, in all it’s chaotic, contemplative collage, a joy to listen to - defying plebeian description and totally inspiring. Inspired to do what? Not sure. But something.
