Hey friends, fancy some seminal avant-garde dicking about? Then you're in luck because Doxy (which, as far as I can gather from Google, is the great saxophone colossus Sonny Rollins' label) have issued a pair of fine musique concrete LPs that'd otherwise cost you about a million pounds to obtain. Proper public service shit and I doff my beret to them. Symphonie Pour Une Homme Seul/Concert des Ambiguites marked some of the first excursions into the 'style' by Pierres Henry and Schaeffer and feature all manner of sonic experimentation from manipulated field recordings to primitive experimental noise, sampling, pure environmental soundscapes, tape manipulations, sonic montage and occasionally even straight instrumental passages (particularly piano). Le Micophone Bien Tempere, by Henry alone, features what was apparently his first attempt to focus these elements into a notated piece. What's remarkable is that these lads were pretty much the first to do most this kind of shit so as a document the two LPs are totally invaluable but it's only fair to warn you that it is pure sound experimentation and as such doesn't feature much in the way of melody or party bangers.. You'll know if this sort of thing floats your boat and if it does you'll be well chuffed with these high quality vinyls!
