Michel Colombier Vinyl, CD & tapes by Michel Colombier at Norman Records
This first stretch of this 1967 release makes up the score of a ballet by Maurice Bejart. It represents Henry at his most friendly, applying his electroacoustic skills in a very swinging sixties context. Most famously, the record contains the track Psyché Rock, later used as the basis of the theme to animated comedy series Futurama, and was also subject to a remix by Fatboy Slim. Some more outré material follows, making this a nicely balanced introduction to Henry’s oeuvre.
