Electroacoustic & musique concrete masterpiece from hungarian composer Istvan Szigeti underlining "instrument" of the human voice.

Some info on the release: This is the original hungarian pressing from Hungaroton label (that released also records from Zoltan Pongracz, Nicolas Schoeffer, Ivan Patachich, Ricardo Mandolini, Tamas Ungvary, Lazlo Dubrovay, Paul Arma, Zoltan Jeney, Laszlo Sary, Gabor Darvas and others). Szigeti's opus magnum, experimental electronics with a focus on the human voice. Szigeti creates dreamy and haunting surreal electronic promenades build on electronic sounds (keyboards and programming) and vocals, be it poetry reading (from Sándor Weöres on tr. # 1 and László Nagy tr.#3), reciting, singing, electronically treated or otherwise processed. The compositions emphasize human voice's liquid sonorities and we are treated wet hungarian phonemes a-plenty. Everything happens in a dream-like state, typical from Eastern Europe's surrealism (think czech legendary film Valerie soundtrack, for instance).

Since 1994, István Szigeti (b.1952) has been the director of Hungary's National Radio HEAR Music Studio, a professional facility provided to composers of electroacoustic music. There was another electroacoustic studio in Budapest during the 1970s, the Budapest New Music Studio, where people like Péter Eötvös used to compose. Though Szigeti also composes for traditional instruments, this LP is a selection from his electroacoustic works from the 1980s. Szigeti's music retains some of early electroacoustic's freshness and naivety – not that the compositions are naive, far from it ; but Szigeti believes in electroacoustic music as a means to convey the human's inner emotions. Szigeti creates dreamy and haunting surreal electronic promenades build on electronic sounds (keyboards and programming) and vocals, be it poetry reading (from Sándor Weöres on tr. # 1 and László Nagy tr.#3), reciting, singing, electronically treated or otherwise processed. The compositions emphasize human voice's liquid sonorities and we are treated wet hungarian phonemes a-plenty. Everything happens in a dream-like state, typical from Eastern Europe's surrealism (think czech legendary film Valerie soundtrack, for instance). (kind courtesy of continuo's blog) Szigeti belongs to the "league" of eastern Europe composers that experimented with electronic during the 70's together with Corneliu Dan Georgescu, Costin Miereanu, Iancu Dumitrescu, Fernando Grillo, Octavian Nemescu, Zbynek Vostrak, Krzysztof Penderecki, Knittel, Wlodzimierz Kotonski and others.
