1 - ALESSANDRONI, ALESSANDRO - ROMANCE & DRAMA - (LP) 
TRANSVERSALES DISQUES


First reissue of this essential LP by Italian pioneer and Ennio Morricone cohort, Alessandro Alessandroni. Originaly released on Munich based experimental, progressive library label Coloursound. Alessandroni at his best: very refined Italian cinematic sound, tense 12 strings guitar themes, synth sequences, beautiful sound of chamber classical music mixed with psych choir. You can feel Alessandroni's magical touch for melodies and arrangements on nearly each song and at the same time, some Francois de Roubaix reminiscence on themes like 'Dramatic' and 'Sad Farewell'. No doubt each track of this underrated masterpiece could have been a classic soundtrack theme.

2 - BASCHET, BERNARD/MICHEL DENEUVE/ALAIN DUMONT - 4 ESPACES SONORES - (LP) 
TRANSVERSALES DISQUES


Rare 1979 recording of Bernard Baschet performing on his Sound Sculptures. The Baschet brothers are known worldwide as creators of Sound Sculptures, fantastic shapes of moulded metal and glass, which combine visual arts with music. Franois Baschet had always been fascinated by acoustics, by the relationships between the shape and material of an instrument and the beauty of its sound. Bernard Baschet was passionately interested in contemporary music and firmly believed that such instruments were the proper tools for modern music, for they offered to the artist and performer a personal means of expression denied by electronic devices. Together the brothers began to design and produce Sound Sculptures, which could also be regarded as musical instruments. Circa 1965, Bernard worked alongside Pierre Schaeffer as a member of the GRM (Musical Research Group) on the elaboration of what was to become Schaeffer's 'Traite Des Objets Musicaux'.

7 - PARMEGIANI, BERNARD - ROCK O.S.T. - (LP) 
TRANSVERSALES DISQUES


The first release on the French Transversales Disques label is the original soundtrack of the film 'Rock', composed in 1982 by Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013), a major figure of electro acoustic music and member of the historic GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales). The work of Parmegiani, a virtuoso of the magnetic tape, is widely known to the public even without their knowledge, through the famous titles he composed for the TV program 'Stade 2', for France Inter and also for the jingle adopted by Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris (1971-2005). Bernard Parmegiani produced a large number of jingles, soundtracks and indicatives but 'Rock' stands apart in his repertoire. He recorded it without any outside constraints in his own studio. On listening to 'Rock', one is reminded of John Carpenter or Francois de Roubaix: a work which mixes the sounds of the TR-808 drum-machine, synthi AKS, Farfisa organ and clavinet.

8 - ROUBAIX, FRANCOIS -DE- - LE SAUT DE L'ANGE/R.A.S - (LP) 
TRANSVERSALES DISQUES


Never released before on LP, here come the complete original soundtracks of French cult film composer Francoir de Roubaix for director Yves Boisset. Two movies that embody the two sides of Franois de Roubaix's approach to recording. For 'Le Saut De L'Ange' (1971), the self-taught composer wrote an orchestration for some fifty musicians playing strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion with two distinct solo instruments alternating the main theme: Indian Sitar on the one hand and accordion on the other. This beautiful score creates the seam that binds Bangkok to Marseille, the two places where the action takes place. 'R.A.S' (1973) was recorded on a 8-track tape recorder, in Franois de Roubaix's home studio on rue de Courcelle, where most of his '70s scores were recorded. The result is a mix of military-march rhythms, rolls on the snare-drum with sounds of Synthi AKS syntheziser: de Roubaix invented a modern sound for this contemporary-history tragedy.

10 - WAKHEVITCH, IGOR - KSHATRYA (THE EYE OF THE BIRD) - (LP) 
TRANSVERSALES DISQUES


Transversales Disques presents 'Kshatrya' (The Eye Of The Bird)', a never released before recording by French avant-garde electronic composer Igor Wakhevitch, who composed a bunch of major experimental albums in the '70s such as 'Logos', 'Docteur Faust', 'Hathor', 'Les Fous d'Or', 'Nagual' and 'Let's Start'. During this 10 years period, Wakhevitch was close to Jean-Michel Jarre, Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, and legendary choreographer Maurice Bejart having with him many conversations around dance and music, human body and soul, spiritual path, collective life, new society, human evolution. As a composer Igor Wakhevitch collaborated with Salvador Dali, Carolyn Carlson, and Terry Riley to name a few. He's considered as one of the first French composer using synthesizers like Synthi AKS, ARP2600 or Moog modular systems. After spending almost 30 years in India, Igor Wakhevitch dug in his archives, and found this unreleased work recorded in 1999 on his 'Mysterious Island 88' system. Esoteric, sacred and cosmic, 'Kshatrya (The Eye Of The Bird)' is the logical follow up of Igor's early works and a monumental piece of electronic music.
