This 1972 album by Les Percussions de Strasbourg, a group formed in 1962 in Strasbourg, a city on the Rhine River in northeastern France, has been active for 60 years and has produced a number of classic albums with striking silver print and black typographic covers. The album features compositions by Tona Scherchen, Alain Louvier, and Georges Aperghis, all on the theme of religion and God in the West and East. The world is expressed through the sounds of metal, wood, and stone percussion instruments in stillness and motion, and through the secret arrangement of numbers and signs in up and down motion. The spatiality is wonderful.

A2: Alain Louvier “Candrakala”
B1: Georges Aperghis “Kryptogramma”
