Above all, the sense of joyful mischievousness characterizing the album causes us to realize why there’s no need of disproportionate solemnity to conceive stimulating music. — Touching Extremes, Italy
La mia convinzione è che Musique pour objets en voie de disparition non solo sia un disco molto bello… — Wonderous Stories, Italy
Eight pieces like eight flashbacks to a bygone daily sonic life. A nostalgia-prone stroll down obsolescence lane. Eight pieces like eight memories and stories, true or fictional, happy or sad, in Technicolor or Smell-o-rama.
+ 1. Night, snores, tick-tock, peace, dreams, drrrring! + 2. Desert, wind, sand, blues, pulleys, windmill, sun + 3. Play, unwind, rewind, clack, fast-forward, tape, a reedy voice + 4. Mystery, tension, clock, action, drama, ring… nobody! + 5. The fall of black and white in a “natural” context + 6. The printer_. Nostalgia for the future. Soon, it will be only virtual + 7. Messages left on cassettes, found in flea markets and bazaars, stories by “real” people. (Thanks to Shirley and Ginette) + 8. The hum of percolators, the gargles of coffee going up and down, music in smell-o-rama for a rainy morning.
This disc was entirely assembled without the consent of the musicians playing on it. I thank them for agreeing to record “blindfolded” and let me manipulate them as I pleased. (Diane Labrosse)
