eD: 4th disc by Robert Normandeau

Wednesday, January 16, 2002 New releases

“Clair de Terre is fundamentally entertaining, a rare comment for electroacoustic music.” (All Music Guide, USA) Just after releasing a compilation of his major works on the Rephlex label (UK), Robert Normandeau presents his 4th album, an homage to the 20th century and the two art forms born out of it, cinema and musique concrète. An intimate work, dealing with his acoustic preoccupations since the late 80’s, Clair de terre transposes film techniques into acousmatic mouvements and uses the very personnal sound bank constituted by the composer throughout the years. The other two tracks lights a new aspect of Normandeau’s work. Indeed, even if he composed soundtracks for numerous plays, it is the first time one of them appears on CD.
