Cordier, Eric – “Digitalis Purpurea ” – [Ground Fault Recordings]

Four pieces (10 to 15 minutes each) of minimal sound art, mostly involving tape manipulation rather than electronic processing. Cordier recorded droning sounds from “real” instruments such as hurdy-gurdy, church organ, and dulcimer. The taped results were sped up/ slowed down/ manipulated into unrecognizability. Track 4 differs from the other three in that there was no manipulation of the actual recordings. All pieces were recorded 1992-97, and originally presented via ambitious sound installations involving hundreds of speakers. Here are nice stereo mixes for the home listener.
