Un Drame Musical Instantané-Sous les mers,LP,1988,France(NWW list?)

Un Drame Musical Instantane was found in 1976 with the view that contemporary music must open itself to a broader public to survive the heavy-weight of the other mediums. Everything caught in the trawling net of the culturel industry could be a building block for a new piece. Everyday life, its soundworld, its language, its absurdities, become the material for Un Drame’s image and sound collages: they transform radio sounds, supermarket advertising, muzak, snippets of dialogue from fictitious texts and the noise of Paris into pieces of music.

What a fascinating travel, urging me to give a new spin to other albums of Un Drame Musical Instantané, which I didn't like so much a few years ago after borrowing from my local médiathèque. This one is magical, fullof suspens and at moments very very funny !

Thanks a lot MutantSounds (also had a very good time listening to La guêpe by Bernard Vitet)

Harsher than I had expected, but very interesting all the same. Thanks for the post.
