Ghedalia Tazartes's third album was originally released in 1984 on the Celluloid label. Born in France of Turkish descent, his compositions use modern musical language and concepts of organized sound, incorporating many languages, and expressing incredible and bizarre musical attitudes that lock the listener's focus. He uses the tools of the academics in the manner of a rock musician, but without the ego, and indeed, with a huge sense of humor and awe for the world around us. Tazartes' work went largely unnoticed in the 70s and 80s that his most creative compositions were released, and he has only recently received the interest he deserves.
Une Eclipse... was originally a work in two parts with incredibly creative music, along with many voicings, from those of children to inexplicably odd chattering and chanting. It also incorporates a canary, a woman on the stairs, and the vacuum-cleaner's miraculé! This reissue also includes a new work, "Part I", composed expressly for this release incorporating recorings from Paris 1976 & 1979.
• Show Bio for Ghedalia Tazartes
Ghédalia Tazartès was born 1947 in Paris
"French cult artist Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. He recorded alone a dozen of albums, calling his way of working "Impromuz" for lack of a better term. Before the years 2000s, his public appearances remained exceptional events.
Ghédalia Tazartès' music has always been a mystery. It switches from musique concrète to - existing or invented - ethnic music, from poetry to noise, or from loops and collages to sad and extremely beautiful tunes in a second, but it constantly is in flux and coherent.
In 2004, Ghedalia finally decided to do live performances again. He first worked with other musicians (Les Reines d'Angleterre, David Fenech & Jac Berrocal, Norscq & Black Sifichi, Nicolas Lelièvre) and is now a solo performing artist (although his very young son sometimes joins him on stage!).
Since 2009 Tazartes played many shows across Europe. After performing a cinemix to the strange "Haxan" film in 2008, he presented in February 2013 a new solo show at CTM in Berlin Festival to a packed HAU2. The new show is based around the music of Tazartes' lattest album 'Coda Lunga.' Says Tazartes: 'I thought I had only played for 5 minutes in Berlin... then I realised I had been going on for more than one hour!'"-Julie Tippex Website (http://julietippex.com/roster/ghedalia-tazartes/)
