Album Review

Lemaitre, Maurice – “Poemes Et Musiques Lettriste Et Hyperhonie” – [Alga Marghen]

mickeyslim   9/24/2014   12-inch, A Library


Maurice Lemaitre was the co-founder of an avante-garde French art movement called the Lettrists, who took influences from Dadaists and Surrealism. The lettrist movement explores art (poetry, painting, novels, cinema, photos) as well as social sciences (economics, law, psychology), and focuses mainly on the idea of creativity and the creative method.

On this album, released on the Alga Marghen label, Lemaitre explores the uses of the human voice. The first few tracks blend rock ‘n’ roll music while Lemaitre “sings.” Sometimes its in French, sometimes in gibberish. Recordings from 1957-1968, some of with appear to be recorded live. Very cool ,very interesting, very unique record that many will dig.
