This cassette is apparently the unique release from Intra Musiques, a French underground music magazine from Strasbourg in eastern France directed by critic, concert organizer and record distributor Pierre Durr who now writes in Revue & Corrigée. Published from 1981 to 1987, Intra Musiques covered avant jazz, Rock In Opposition, industrial rock, DIY cassette releases, etc, in the tradition of legendary magazine Atem founded in the mid-1970s by Gérard N’Guyen of Les Disques du Soleil et de l’Acier record company.
♫ The “Rencontre du 1er Type” compilation gathers bands from Strasbourg, Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy (home of the Musique Action festival since 1984) and Reims (home of AYAA and Look de Book). The style is roughly similar to the AYAA compilation LPs Douze Pour Un vol. 1 and 2, that is instrumental avant jazz tracks with a rock structure, inspired by John Zorn and Fred Frith. The Look de Book tracks were exclusive to this tape and never appeared on LP or CD.
