The New Phonic Art Ensemble, a unit led by Slovenian composer/trombonist Vinko Globokar and featuring percussionist Jean-Pierre Drouet, multi-instrumentalist Carlos Roque Alsina, and reed player Michel Portal, released a masterpiece in 1971. Described as a third level of improvisation beyond John Cage's music of indeterminacy and Karlheinz Stockhausen's intuitive music, the album features piano, electronic organ, percussion, alpine horn, Macedonian orchestra, and a variety of other instruments. As the name implies, this is neophonic art music, in which the sounds of various reed instruments, including piano, electronic organ, percussion, and ethnic instruments such as horns and Macedonian oboes, create a random yet organic acoustic space through the composition of groaning, intonation, and silence. The sound quality of this Japanese release, produced by Trio Records, is excellent, with wonderful screen prints by Kohei Sugiura and Shuhei Tsuji. No obi/insert included.
