Since no one else seems to be mentioning this stuff, and it involves
several people from the list, I thought I would post some information on
some recent electroacoustic / acousmatic CD releases which I have gotten in
stock (I'll omit prices to avoid being a commercial, though if anyone
actually want to buy some of this stuff, get in touch by all means).
Anybody involved have any comments on these?

* Gino Favotti "Electric Forest" CD a collaboration
between the elder (acousmatic composer) and younger (school boys interested
in techno) resulting in a cross between the genres. an evocation of a
futuristic forest utilizing treated sounds from the Barthelemy bronze
foundry and the forest of Saou. 24 minutes. Motus France M 398001

* Laurent Sassi & Marc Pichelin "Retraite" 3" CD "recorded
in a house for old people. very good (a lot of text in French)." special
postcard sleeve. Ouie-Dire Prod. France CP 9906

* Schams "Erres" CD "a cross between extreme free-jazz (God,
Naked City, Peter Brötzmann) and ambient (Z'ev) Schams (meaning 'sun' in
Arabic) fuses traditional and acoustic instruments with electronic effects.
the band's expansive membership has, as its nucleus, Jean-Luc Guionnet
(sax, bagpipes, harmonium), Eric Cordier (hurdy-gurdy) and Yannick Tallet
(drums). Schams proliferates numerous genres, from live improvs with Erik
M, Dominique Repecaud or Pascal Battus (Pheromne) to electroacoustic
performances with Eric La Casa (Afflux). attracted by their forcibleness,
they were invited to play first attraction at Keiji Haino's last Paris
concert." Shambala Records France shamb 99002
