Pascal Comelade - Paralelo

Saw that M. Comelade will be playing with Richard Pinhas (!!!) near me in January. Pascal Comelade, the name sounded familiar, then I recalled a really enjoyable album he put out with Jac Berrocal, Jaki Liebezeit, and others in the '90's. Maybe I'll put that up on here soon.

This album is a very nice mix of electronics on the listenable side (for me) of harsh and acoustic instrumentation (some piano, clarinet). Robert Wyatt is cited in one of the track titles, not sure if he plays on this, though that vocal loop attributed to Gavin Bryars in "Automne" sounds a lot like him... Also hearing traces of Harmonia (The loping loop of "Nicaragua") and Throbbing Gristle/Tolerance (the long siren sound/drum track of "Mouvement décomposé"). If you dig that stuff, chances are good you'd dig this!
