Stephane Gasparini - La lecon de chant Electro-Magnetique (1983, IT/FR, electronic/opera) 
Friday, June 29, 2007, 07:44 PM - Music, - FR, - IT, English
How did an adjective like Electro Magnetic, which only originated in 1823, germinate in the minds of J. Offenbach and E. Bourget, so that today it has become a common term.
Just imagine an Italian singing teacher in 1983 with his own recording studio comprising numerous electro-magnetic instruments, intent on promoting a reticent singing student who he must back up with synthesizers and sound mixing panels. We must jump a century to react with the same enthusiasm.
(from the sleeve notes)



I found this on the market. If you dislike opera voices, like I do, skip to side two, there you find the instrumental rendition. That synthesizer only version is not available on cd.

Side one:
1 Introduction [2:10]
2 No 1 Andante - Tout zante sur la terre [4:24]
3 No 2 Tarentelle - C'est la vive tarentelle [1:13]
4 No 3 Ensemble - Apôtre de la foi magnétique [7:34]
5 No 3 bis La Bigornoise - Ronde (extraite de l'Ensemble) [5:13]
6 No 4 Final [1:31]

Side two:
1 Introduction [1:14]
2 No 1 Andante [1:52]
3 No 2 Tarentelle [1:12]
4 No 3 Ensemble [4:05]
5 No 3 bis La Bigornoise [3:59]
6 No 4 Final [1:31]

UPDATE:
The uploads where damaged, I re-uploaded them again.

Nino Nardini - Funny Moogy (1983, FR, electronic) 
Friday, December 29, 2006, 06:50 PM - Music, - FR, English
I bought this as a bootleg cd.
The bootlegger tried to reduce the noise of the old lp.
By doing so, he damaged some synthesizer sounds.
That's a pity. The music is excellent.

Georges Rodi - Electronic Sounds (FR, electronic) 
Thursday, December 14, 2006, 10:30 PM - Music, - FR, English
Is it Roger Roger? Is it Nino Nardini? No, it's super Georges Rodi!
The Moog Cookbook must have heard this before they started.
All synthesizer with some guitar on Morning Song.
Too good to only be called 'library music'.
Especially Sideral Clock gets an 8 on the White Noise Scale.



I don't know from which year it is, early 70's I suppose.
By the way: the Moog Cookbook has a new cd out, you can listen to it here. And, yes!, they too made a version of Psyche Rock.

Side one:
1 Remembering the Future [2:46]
2 Hell's Angels [3:00]
3 Electronic Sounds [2:53]
4 Western Time [2:44]
5 Peace and Love [2:57]
6 Sideral Clock [3:19]

Side two:
1 Sand Rose [2:59]
2 Indian Love Melody [3:01]
3 Metallic Blues [3:02]
4 Superpositions [2:53]
5 Morning Song [3:04]
6 Chain Link [3:00]
