Lionel Marchetti is a French electroacoustic music composer (b1967) who started releasing discs in 1993 under the influence of Michel Chion. Since then he released highly original discs like ‘Portrait d’un glacier’(2001), ‘Noord Five Atlantica’ (2006) and my favorite ‘Train de Nuit’ (2002). The CD is the result of numerous workshops he conducted in schools with children from 12 to 16 years old. The composer helps the kids record source material then process it themselves with effects and montage. This CD is a selection of some of these musique concrète tracks and is meant to be played on shuffle mode with the silent tracks popping up here and there. Some of Marchetti’s own technique springs up here and there but with a fresh and naive take on musique concrète. The is also a cute website with updated soundfiles.
