Bernard Parmegiani
L’Oeil Ecoute/Dedans-Dehors

Recollection GRM

Third release on the newly minted eMego offshoot Recollection GRM and it’s a doozy. “L’Îil Žcoute / Dedans-Dehors” are two pieces realized by Bernard Parmegiani in 1970. The former is full of negative space and low, coiling drones. For listeners whose only exposure to GRM came in the form of the first two installments in the Recollection GRM catalog, this material will come across as much less frenetic and more cinematic, particularly the beautiful, cosmic landscapes that make up the middle portion of the A-side. “Dedans-Dehors” opens with beautiful panning oscillations and develops into a startlingly alien edifice of gorgeous complexity. As ever with eMego-related releases, the production spec here is immaculate. This might just be my favorite on this young imprint and has me eagerly awaiting future installments. Superlative. - Alex Cobb, Experimedia
