8/10 Mike Staff review, 21 February 2014

Sadly I have reached the point in the week where I must rush out my reviews in order to get them done in time for the weekly update, so I don't get to spend as much time with this 'Danse Sacrale' compilation as I would like. It collects together 14 early avant-garde and electronic compositions for ballet and modern dance by the likes of Pierre Henry, Lasry-Baschet, Jean-Claude Vannier and Igor Wakhevitch, among others.

The sounds are many and varied, from the clarinet and weird glassy wibbles of Lasry-Baschet to the feverish otherworldly synthesis of Alwin Nikolais, the disorienting musique concrete of Henry and Vannier's precisely orchestrated weirdness, this is a wildly unusual, varied and surprisingly entertaining collection.

I thought it would get quite dry and difficult in places but it's actually a pretty fun listen!
