Souvenir de Pierre

Schaeffer, Paroles et Musique. Ina-GRM 9106 SC. 1982.

Denis Dufour's transposition of Pierre Schaeffer's Étude aux sons animés to the world of instrumental playing marks the beginning of the GRM Plus Trio's (TM+) adventure. With his acute and trained hearing as a composer, both instrumental and acousmatic, he has created a score in three parts, a faithful, precise, detailed and documented graphic score based on the original work. Through his mastery of writing, he ensured that signs and symbols were clear and suggestive enough to allow any instrumental ensemble of at least three musicians to play the work. Here, it is with two synthesisers and a prepared piano that Laurent Cuniot, Denis Dufour and Yann Geslin recorded this "classic" which recaptures its youthful air. According to Schaeffer himself, his work was sleeping "in the waters of Lethe, at the bottom of the magnetic cupboards”.
