Chopin, Henri – “Le Courpsbis & Co” – [nepless]

“This French avant-garde sound poet worked on the fringes of art and experimental music from the ’60s through to the ’80s. Utilizing his voice as a primary sound source, he constructed collages of distortions of the human voice, using analog tape machines to create loops and pitch shifts, resulting in bizarre collages of concrete noise and physicality.” -answers.com (haha). These tracks were all recorded between 1983 and 1992. It’s amazing that they’re all loops and manipulations of mouth sounds. Typewriting chitter chatting fast. Breathes in slow motion that send tingles down your neck. So many different takes on what the mouth can do, from clicks, licks, smacks, squishes & swallows. Amazing what one person can do with something that seems so granted. Love it!
