Ghedalia Tazartes - Trans ports (1984)+Check Point Charlie(1990), LPs, Italy, (NWW list)




Sound-splicing French studio trickster employing gibberish vocals at varying speeds, middle eastern cadences and instrumentation, and proto-electronica sound manipulations galore in creating a Residents/Nurse With Wound at a Sufi ceremony collage.Wonderful stuff!

Though the Checkpoint Charlie is another I did locate, this Ghédalia Tazartès item has been very elusive. Thought I had it in my cross-hairs, but it outfoxed me on each attempt.

Thank you, SO much...as usual I am complete psyched to hear this. You have completely taken over my playlist.

Ghedalia was a great big ecstatic present, first time I heard Diasporas and Tazartes.

Check out these CD reissues -- a box set! -- on Algha Marghen (Italy): http://www.forcedexposure.com/artists/tazartes.ghedalia.html

Very enjoyable -- the expected mix of chaos, yes, but in a way that's quite flowing, like a perfect DJ mix.

Did a review-article of the Alga Marghen box set. Anyone interested to read it could try the following link

There's been another recent release by Tazartes on the Jardin Au Fou label and an earlier one that gets overlooked on the Demosaurus label

This isn't the Checkpoint Charlie referred to by the NWW list - that one is the German one. Different groups.
