Boomkat Product Review:
Emerging from the same starburst of arch-experimentalism which spawned the likes of Alfred Corte, Pierre Schaeffer and Olivier Messiaen, the recently deceased Luc Ferrari (who would have been 77) has influenced generations - combining an understanding of sound as a living entity, whilst displaying a tacit ability to illicit the social fabric in which noise exists. Or something... Nonetheless, work such as ' Histoire du Plaisir et de la Désolation' and 'Presque Rien No. 1' capture the essence of humanity through a series of field recordings which serves to prove John Cage's assertion that "music is all around us if only we had ears". Opening with a throaty moped and distant TV, 'Son Memorise' journeys through three distinct territories; with great swathes of social detritus (a village festival etc.) distilled down to its core essence and relived with a depth that, whilst fully engaging, has a startling brevity as it displays Ferrari's consummate talent in identifying the core and removing the lint from what we hear. Closing with the Reich-esque 'Saliceburry Cocktail', Ferrari has the ability to make you see the world in a different, more aurally colourful manner... and he's got a cool name. That's good enough for us!
