Serge De Laubier is a french instrument builder, music software designer and composer who was a member of INA-GRM until 1998. He created the ‘Meta-Instrument’ (pictured top), a sensor-based [apparatus] controling sounds and/or light via Max/MSP software. Rémi Dury is a french instrument builder and composer. In 2007 he launched the KRL (or Carl, pictured bottom left), a stick with various sensors on its body, allowing the musician to control sounds, lighting effects as well as videos. The cyber-instruments De Laubier and Dury create as Puce-Muse, the name of their recording studio/laboratoy and collective live events, are meant to be viable instruments, possibly of interest to other interprets and composers, thanks to well designed ergonomics. They claim their intruments, especially the KRL, are suitable to disabled people. Their creations embarks influences from musique concrète, multimedia light shows and professional design. This 2CD set documents their output up until 1997, including live recordings of sonic lassos, sonic wands, Meta-Instruments and a few studio compositions for tape. During the 1980s, they used a self-designed software to spread sounds around their 8 speakers PA system, calling these pieces ‘octophonic music’, of course rendered as stero tracks on this CD. Some of the best tracks on this collection are based on enchanting whirling chimes circling around loudspeakers (tr.#6 & 11).
