St. Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013)
« on: February 28, 2014, 09:09:11 AM »
!!!DANCING BALLS!!! you dirty minded philistines! I mean, 'Meat Balls'!!

I know some here know him from his recent 'dahlink' status at the avant record labels (and please do chime in), but I accidentally (ha!) happened upon this old movie from 1977, 'The Blood of Dr. Jekyll', starring Udo Kier and Patrick Magee, and lo, Parmegiani wrote the score, which I believe was fairly static and non-offensively electronic, so I wondered what you've heard?

Parmegiani's oeuvre is very important in the electroacoustic genre.  Many great works; here's a couple ~

Parmegiani's cheesy corner might have been better.

Sounds a little like Xenakian E/A perhaps?

Definitely the most appropriate title.

That second piece was QUITE groovy!! That's the biggest concession to 'Pop' Music from the '60s I've heard. MORE LIKE THAT PLEASE!!!

One of the most brutal tape pieces I've heard from so early. Huh, sounds more like mid'70s, very ahead of the curve there?
