Tapes 1977-1983



The Box provides all of Etant Donnes avantgarde-tapes released between 1977 and 1983 on cult French BainTotal-Label (the label run by Philippe Fichot of Die Form!).
Box also contains a DVD with Live-Peformances by Etant Donnes.

Etant Donnes compositions are passionate and brutally communicative, their music and words are minimalist just like the writings and chants of the religious mystics Sufi, trying to recover the virginity of the words and sounds, they map new territories and establish their own personal rules.
These first tracks contains all the brutal collages of found sounds investigating nuances of sounds that at times verges upon silence, the inspired and enraptured meeting with earth's natural forces, an homage to the shadow of night, to the vineyard and the golden door. In these first six LPs Etant Donnés' create their own brand of total audio expression using belches and punches, their attention is concentrated on the symphonic cacophonie organisation of disorganized found sounds, using magical rhythms only directed by cosmic rules.
A perfect way of organizing natural sounds that obeys fundamental principles that everyone wishes to convey, a music able to tear down walls and build a universal comprehension, a cosmic law of beauty, a magical and alchemical act of poetry.
