MICHEL MAGNE

Michel Magne

Musique Tachiste

    As the debut release on Finders Keepers’ new experimental / jazz / avant-garde imprint, Cacophonic release the first in a series of rare records by French experimentalist Michel Magne.

    One of the very earliest full-length French concept albums - part radical manifesto, part pantomime. This anti-intellectual "physical" reaction to the bourgeoning musique concrete movement combines found sounds and industrial noise with piano jazz alongside imposing avant-garde orchestral elements and Magne's own hammered cimbalom flourishes. This unique debut album also provides an early insight into a fruitful soundtrack / conceptual jazz career collaborating with Jean-Claude Vannier, Martal Solal and Artie Kaplan as well as founding the French Strawberry Studio at Château d' Hérouville where French groups like Magma, Catherine Ribeiro, Brigitte Fontaine and Ange shared a diary with Terry Riley and Pink Floyd.

    Presented here for the first time since its initial humble pressing in its unabridged entirety complete with its collectable illustrated sleeve art this album stands as the perfect debut release and musical modus operandi for this new archival imprint.
