Planète-Concrète is both an homage to, and an investigation of, the occult dimension found in French music and spoken word from the second half of the 20th century, emphasizing both the cosmic and musique concrète riches of the period. It was premiered as a continuous 2-hour-mix on LYL Radio in July 2019 with additional music not included on this Bandcamp album, where old out of print releases, private pressings and public domain material has been selected.

The title refers to writer and publisher Louis Pauwels (1920-1997), famous co-author of Le Matin des Magiciens (The Morning of the Magicians, 1960) and publisher of Planète magazine, 1961-71. Through numerous activities, Pauwels explored ancient mysteries in various civilizations from the past as well as modern occultism found in contemporary science, art and literature. In fact, Pauwels’ unique vision inspired the whole Planète-Concrète project. The opening track features his voice from a 1963 conference titled Introduction au Réalisme Fantastique (Introduction to Magic Realism, my translation).

Accordingly, the rest of the album was build on samples and excerpts from obscure LPs in my record collection, be it Rosicrucian or Yoga records, mystic musicians like Sri Danesh and Antoine Tisné, or avantgarde, private press releases by Alain Louvier, Armand Lemal, Patrice Boyer or Théatre Aleph. The sounds of harpsichord and carillon reappear repeatedly throughout Planète-Concrète like a dotted line, their abundant harmonics representing a bridge between cosmic and avantgarde music, a quality also found in the Ondes Martenot, here featured (tr.#7) in a cut-up of Antoine Tisné’s boisterous score for the instrument, Visions des Temps Immémoriaux (1972).

Central piece L’Hermaphrodite contains the voices of a couple of 1950s French actors reading a famous passage from proto-Surrealist writer Comte de Lautréamont’s masterpiece Les Chants de Maldoror (1869). The curious poem –a queer manifesto avant la lettre– is used as an excuse for grotesque reverb, insane synth sounds and heavily transformed vocals. The original LP, issued in the 1950s, features music concrète interjections by Michel Philippot, a member of Pierre Schaeffer’s Groupe de Recherches Musicales at the time.

Sainte Rita et son invitée DJ **** proposent ici une “Dictée magique”, un mix à quatre mains pour disques parlants. Les voix de leurs disques se répondent et se coupent la parole, esquissant une polyphonie où Colette Magny pourrait dialoguer avec Artaud, l’inspecteur Gadget et des a capella de dance. DJ ****, qui se fait aussi appeler Fanny Quément, collectionne ces disques de poésie qu’elle a présentés dans la revue Audimat (n° 9), bande son à l’appui.

Faitiche’s Jan Jelinek invites Tim Tetzner for this month’s broadcast, him providing with a sound collage entitled “Earth covers Earth, Wind and Fire”, a sound meditation dedicated to humankind’s most ambiguous fantasy, Earth. In 1966, soon after Stewart Brand asked Why Haven’t We Seen A Photograph Of The Whole Earth Yet?, NASA presented a perfectly beautiful first image of Earth taken from space by its ATS-3 satellite. But what at the time extended our understanding of the planet was soon to be challenged by theoretical physics: science now turned Earth from an alluring blue marble in space into an abstract mathematical delusion driven by string theory and overshadowed by an unresolved black-hole information paradox.
Dedicated to the soulful voice of Dinah Washington, inspired by Low Res’ Mistaken Alien Interpretations Of Earth Music and deluded by Michael Talbot’s The Holographic Universe.

The Carribean Situationist is an exploration of vernacular musics and poetry from Haiti, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbados, taking advantage of two invaluable online resources: Jamaica Musical Passage, with rare examples of 17th century folk music, and Radio Haiti Archives, collecting exceptional shows from the 1970s and 80s. The Carribean Situationist is a personal interpretation of the archipelago’s sound world, an aural travelogue encompassing traditional and modern music styles, spoken word, rhythm loops and electronic processing. The title comes from a 1973 anarchist LP named “None Shall Escape ñ Caribbean Situationist versus Trevor Menroe”, compiling conversations and informations on Carribean workers’ struggles ca. 1966-73.

SOUVENIR is the handle of Claire Voyant & Elle Andrews.
For this Curation, they present us FTFY: Fixed This For You.
“Our focus was to step away from an easy categorisation of femininity, (against fetishisation, othering or tokenism) and instead explore the absurdities and quirks of what it is to identify as a woman in the present day.
So we delve into the realms of weird girl energy, via found footage and audio recordings that we’ve made, which examine modern phenomena such as vocal fry, overwatch gaming, pig squeals, mums-net, bongs & just every day chit chat.”

SOUVENIR are Dedicated London diggers, known for their esoteric & raw slant on electronic dance music & beyond. Claire has run the shop at Rye Wax Records Peckham for the past 3 years and recently co-founded anti-RSD festival The Run Out. Elle has been playing underground parties across the UK for the past ten years.

With its strict constraints of rhyme and metre, the Villanelle was famously described as ‘exquisite torture’ by one anthologist. However trying the process, the braiding refrains seem to slide effortlessly into musical and rhythmical settings. This music mix, of some genre-founding classics with a host of profoundly forward-thinking current releases, sets the scene for three selected poetic works in the Villanelle form––along with the unrivalled Thylias Moss reading ‘Sunrise Comes to Second Avenue’ and discussing her vision of the future of poetry, and some speech fragments and loops of Derek Walcott and Ursula K. Le Guin…
