The Mecanocentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien

Live recording of this prolific French composer and multi-instrumentalist, documenting his ensemble of musical automatons built from meccano parts and activated by electro-motors. Bastien’s ingenious Heath Robinson set-up allows him to trigger kundi, rubber band, prepared trumpet, nails, flutes, drums and reeds; the result is an enchanting and disorienting rhythmic music, that feels highly structured and authored, at once wonderfully childlike and potently psychedelic, recalling Af Ursin’s Aura Legato and the weirdest passages of Penguin Café Orchestra. Down the rabbit hole you go.
