Album Review

Though it's perhaps Henry's best-known work, Messe Pour le Temps Présent isn't the best display of the powers of musique concrète. Similar to the glut of crossover Moog rock albums around the same time, Henry's occasional bursts of searing computer static are accompanied by a faux '60s go-go beat. It's an intriguing release, but works better for novelty fans and beginners who would rather have a gradual immersion into musique concrète. It earns its stars, however, for its reissue on a French CD that also includes several of Henry's other compositions, including "Variations Pour une Porte et un Soupir."

Customer Reviews

Un chef d'oeuvre de la musique électro-acoustique

Un chef d'oeuvre de la musique électro-acoustique, Pierre Henry dans chacune de ce pieces fait passe le sentiment du monde contemporain sous ses diverses formes au travers de diverses structures electro-acoustiques. Un livre des morts au coeur bien palpitant et une Messe Hippie prête pour le spectacle barabre et chorégraphique de Béjart
