Heldon founder Richard Pinhas' first solo album from 1976, live from Paris solo & with drummer Francois Auguer, reissued with 38 minutes of additional material from the '82 Richard Pinhas Band.
Rhizosphere / Live, Paris 1982
Released in: USA
"Rhizosphere, originally released in 1976, was Pinhas' first solo album. It consists of four solo pieces for synthesizer, plus an extended fifth synthesizer piece which is a duet with Heldon drummer Francois Auguer. For this CD release, an additional 38' was added of a previously unheard, professionally recorded 1982 concert by the Richard Pinhas Band, a short-lived ensemble who were essentially Heldon II in all but name and who featured a great cast of musicians who had all previously played in Magma: Clement Bailly (drums), Patrick Gauthier (synthesizer) (also of Heldon and Weidorje), Bernard Paganotti (bass) (also of Weidorje) and Richard on electronics, synthesizers and guitar. This title has been unavailable on CD for a number of years and with the huge interest in analog electronics and the early days of synthesis, Richard's career in general and the music of Magma, there is a big market for this music."-Cuneiform
