About this item

Since the true identity of this sinister masked electronic keyboard villain was revealed in Jean-Jacques Perrey’s recent autobiography, the ‘Mr. Ondioline’ EP has become one of the most wanted records amongst collectors of early electronics.

As a controversial figure amongst the early musique concrete pioneers, due to his painstaking ambition to put popular melody into edited tape music, this debut release from 1960 hears Mr. Ondioline showcasing Perrey’s Ondioline electronic keyboard (and synth precursor) while proudly celebrating the dawn of multitrack recording and tape editing.

Pioneering, eerily nostalgic and creatively fearless, this record brings electric melodies to your shining barstools and haunted ballrooms.
