Album Review

Guerin, Jean – “Tacet” – [SouffleContinu Records]

Hemroid The Leader   12/9/2015   12-inch, A Library

Originally released in 1971 on French cult label Futura. The most expensive production they ever did, and worth every penny. This is Musique Concrete psychedelic jazz. It has something for everyone! Reissued by Parisian label & record shop Souffle Continu (“Continuous Breath”). Turns out Futura owner Gerard Terrones is a close neighbor of the shop.

Squeaky brass splatters and furtive bass, high-pitch solfege singing, saxophone variations inter-cut with vintage electronics, analog drum machines, patch-bay air sirens, burbling cauldrons, and something called “water trumpet”. Primal, futuristic, dystopian.
