Le tombeau d'Edgard Varèse — by Franck Smith

Released APRIL 2008

In tribute to avant-garde composer Edgard Varèse (1883-1965), this new work for percussive devices and electronics presents a long posthumous march with dark orchestral colors and crepuscular percussion pulses. A quite mysterious funeral cortège in memory of a true sound-alchemist...
