First experiences...

All thoses musics were composed with my first 4 tracks K7 recorder
between 1987/1988 in my first Home Studio
111, rue Béchevelin - 69007 LYON (France)
at CFMI Lyon since 1989

All that sort of archives should be on bandcamp at the end of 2017...

Mastering / (definitives versions) : 2014 / 2015 / 2017

Photographie : in my first Home Studio
111, rue Béchevelin - 69007 LYON (France) - 1987


À propos des archives :

« I started recording sounds when I was 17 years old, in 1984 when by chance someone gave me a K7 tape recorder with 2 diverses speeds.

I discovered recording sounds was already a full and poetic act which was able to be used for the experimental music which i was dreaming of.

In 1987, after one month of hard work in a summer camp restaurant
I bought a 4-track stereo tape recorder and I started a lot of experiments in my little flat in Lyon (France) :
via an old Radiola radio from the 50's, my hifi system, an old synthesizer, my clarinet (I tried to play in water...), a rhythm machine, a bad (good?) microphone etc.

At that period I knew nothing about Revox tape recorders and the idea of tape montage.
Nevertheless, when I started Katakomb (which is a part of a series of my first 33 little musique concrete compositions, I discovered how incredible was the changing of speed for a recorded sound, or all synthesizer sounds, voices...
and the beautiful possibility to reverse all sounds - I was discovering the "power" of a recorded sound.

For me, the act of recording became an incredible acceleration to join a new poetic "world" : Katakomb was one of the first composition which was talking to me from a "nowhere" place as if, as a composer, I became a "stranger"... »
Lionel Marchetti


Lionel Marchetti is a French composer of concrete music
an improviser (electronics, various analogic systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder…)
as well as a visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet

Whether his music is composed or improvised
the body has an important role (Lionel Marchetti danced with the university company Relyanse between 1986 and 1991)

To define his music, one can borrow Kenneth White’s saying :

« Concrete or abstract ?
I like abstraction where a memory of substance remains, concrete refined on the frontiers of emptiness. »
[free translation]
