SIDE A
Music Promenade (1964–1969), 20'29


Electroacoustic Music
World premiere for the Théâtre de la musique, March 16, 1970
" Hétéro-Concert "
"


Permanent version for four stand-alone tape recorders. A series of colliding realistic sounds and sonic images. Whilst walking, a man is struck by the violence of his surroundings.
 Nature has disappeared in a whirlwind of warfare and industry in the midst of which he encounters a dying folklore and a lost young girl.

The "Installation" version is used to sonify a place in which walkers are free to choose their musical itinerary.

SIDE B
Unheimlich Schön (1971), 15'40


Musique concrète made in 1971 in the studios of the Südwestfunk in Baden-Baden.
Voice: Ilse Mengel.

"How does a young woman breathe when thinking about something else ?"
To be listened to at a low volume.
