- Repas Froid by Ghedalia Tazartes
I only discovered previous works by this artist two weeks or so ago and it really twisted my head to say the least. Now this one comes, opening with what sounds like a French husband and wife having a massive domestic blow out. Then huge looped tape sounds offer up a trombone refrain from who knows where, still the voices disagree and it's very unsettling. I'm given the feeling I've stumbled across a part of someone's life that I shouldn't be experiencing. Then the sound of what I imagine it would sound like if I was to trash the Ikea furniture I was building. Total frustration at the lack of words in the instructions!!! Now it sounds like someone kicking in cupboards or wardrobes with some french dialogue pasted over the top. Then some tribal/ritual chants take over. I'm assuming these are from the artist's personal recordings. They get very hypnotic and then some crashing sounds take over like a very pissed off artist exiting a session of recording while we hear movements of chairs. Then just as I thought things could not be stranger...a child's voice emerges, singing and repeating. Meanwhile birdsong plays. Now it's very much unclear to me as whether the bird song is inclusive to this recording or an overdub but either way it's glorious...Aha, now it's the child talking and then a swift breeze through type sounds; channel hopping/radio/collage/plenty of chanting... I got totally tranced out for ages on this record and it's a good place to be so indulge fully!! All good. : )
