Les Danseurs de la Pluie
(Boxed Set, 4PC)
This lavish set includes the complete Ghédalia Tazartès recordings previously issued on CD by Alga Marghen. This edition is presented in a newly designed slipcase box including 4 CDs in elegant slim digipak sleeves. Diasporas is the CD edition of Tazartès' 1979 first album, also including "Ferme ta gueule, Zarathustra" (previously issued as side a of Granny Awards (ALGA 036 LP)). Tazartès' Transports is the CD edition of Tazartès' 1980 second album complete with four "Assassins" bonus tracks (previously issued as the mini-CD Les danseurs de la pluie (TES 063 CD)). Une éclipse totale de soleil is the CD edition of Tazartès' 1984 third album. Originally conceived in two parts, this CD edition is completed by the long bonus track "Il regalo della befana," or "Une éclipse totale de soleil (Part III)" and "Elie," a charming piano piece performed as a duet with Tazartès' young daughter. Tazartès is the CD edition of Tazartès' 1987 fourth album, also including "Whatever Works Singing Wild My Rock Ghédalia" (previously issued as side B of Granny Awards (ALGA 036 LP)). Ghédalia Tazartès is a nomad. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. He paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. Tazartès is an orchestra and a pop group all in one person: The self is multitude and others. The author and his doubles work without a net, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition. To hell with the technocrats of noise and the purists of synthetic culture; this music refuses classification and escapes control.
