Boomkat Product Review:
Finders Keepers' newly minted Cacophonic sub-label triumphs with a remastered rarity by pioneering Belgian composer, Karel Goeyvaerts. 'Pour Que Les Fruits Mürissent Cet Été' is one of the earliest realisations by the former boss of the IPEM society (Belgium's Institute for Psychoacoustic and Electronic Music - make sure to check their recent compilation on Metaphon) and originally appeared in 1977 on the collectable Alpha Brussels imprint. It revolves around three extended pieces ranging from almost medieval, mittel European melody and electronic oscillations to sparse, minimalist percussive arrangements and cold, looming string drone recalling contemporary Kevin Drumm and Reinhold Freidl pieces. Karel studied composition with Darius Milhaud and music analysis with Olivier Messiaen and worked directly with Karlheinz Stockhausen between 1951-1956, producing the first electronic music in the studio of the NWDR in Cologne. Lovers of darkly mystical electro-acoustic music will be in their element with this release. Highly recommended!
