Pierre Bastien & Cabo San Roque / Anna Homler, Adrian Northover, Dave Tucker

Another split 12” from the First Terrace label. This one here features improvisations from the fresh and adventurous trio of Adrian Northover, Anna Homler and Dave Tucker on the one side, and a Pierre Bastien piece for Cabo San Roque’s massive orchestra of mechanical machines. Very varied material here then, but see if you can draw some links between these two fine sides eh?

Pierre Bastien
The Mecanoncentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien

Pierre Bastien started building his orchestra, utilising the once popular kids construction toy Meccano, in the mid-’80s. The Mecanoncentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien captures his weird and wonderful creation at its best, playing all sorts of percussion with more unusual items such as rubber bands, nails and paper. This live performance was recorded at Studio M, Novi Sad, Serbia.

Pierre Bastien
Blue As An Orange

Pierre Bastien is a french composer who is famed for making his own experimental mechanical instruments. Most famously he built an entire orchestra out of the children’s construction toy Meccano in the mid-eighties. Morphine Records seem delighted (and rightly so) to have the pioneer of robotic music signed to their label. As Blue As An Orange is available on vinyl LP and has delightfully pleasing cover art.
