L'homme à la caméra - Pierre Henry

This piece of Musique Concrète by Pierre Henry was composed in 1993 for a unique screening of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 futurist film (Человек с киноаппаратом / The Man With A Camera). Mainly composed with the use of sitar and piano wire loops, buzzing like swarms of bees, the whole work can be considered quite minimalist in the repertoire of the french composer (see Gymnastique for instance).

very nice! in the past i've heard many soundtracks for this classic film (nod to vespucci), but i can't recall this was one of them. henry is such a square fella, one has to love his unique stuff.
