Recollection GRM – Classics of Musique Concrete

A friend from one of the vinyl communities I frequent kindly recommended that I explore the Austrian Recollection GRM sublabel – a series of reissues of records and archival recordings from Groupe De Recherches Musicales, produced by Peter Rehberg in coordination with Christian Zanési & François Bonnet at GRM under the parent label, Editions Mego. They contain fantastic specimens of experimental electronic / Musique Concrète and certainly right up my alley.

I compiled a complete v0 label archive last night in order to survey their recordings and was surprised to find that a few of the albums are reissues of another favorite sublabel of mine – France’s Philips Prospective 21c siecle. (Certainly indicative of their quality!)

Here is the Discogs index, featuring recordings from Bernard Parmegiani, Iannis Xenakis, Jean-Claude Risset, Pierre Schaeffer and others.

And as my friend kindly noted, this is the only way you’ll find Luc Ferrari’s “Presque Rien” in its entirety in a vinyl format.

Thanks my man for tuning me in!
