Arlette Sibon-Simonovitch & Sylvio Gualda (Compositions by Bernard Parmegiani & Joseph Maria Mestres-Quadreny) - Espaces Sonores No. 1 (1972)

Discordant, far-out, arhythmic, anxious, yet often playful sounds performed on an early electronic keyboard called the Ondes Martenot, with thunderous, stuttering percussion accompaniment. I'm definitely very, very high, and this is definitely utterly blowing my mind more and more each time I listen to it, but I can't tell how closely related these two items are -- so you be the judge.

Track listing:
1. Outremer (Parmegiani)
2. Trois Canons En Hommage À Galilée: Premier Canon (Mestres-Quadreny)
3. Trois Canons En Hommage À Galilée: Second Canon (Mestres-Quadreny)
4. Trois Canons En Hommage À Galilée: Troisième Canon (Mestres-Quadreny

  2. This is a brilliant record. I've been getting in to Messiaen's Turangalila Symphony this past week, and the Ondes Martenot is indeed otherwordly.
