Creel Pone treatment of this majorly slept-on set of dark, minimal, surrealist electro-acoustic & Musique Concrète pieces from the Polish composer Joanna Bruzdowicz, a member of the GRM under Pierre Schaeffer’s tutelage between 1968 & 1970 & long-term collaborator of Agnes Varda’s, for whom she scored several films from the mid-80’s on, including “Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse.”

The LP in question (the only one to feature her electronic work) consists of the three-part “Homo Faber” suite - composed in Belgium between 1970 & 1975 at the storied IPEM in Ghent -  & a 5-part suite of flute (performed admirably by Marc Grauwels) & electronic miniatures, “Dum Spiro Spero,” composed in 1981.

Ranging from edit-heavy Concrète assemblages to more serene & focused tonal studies, this set shows the work on a composer exhibiting complete technical & conceptual control over the early European tape-studio in a way that few truly did - remarkable this music has flown under the radar for so long.
