As well as giving you a historic cross section, we would also like to provide you with an acoustic "insight" into the TACET label's production methods. TACET's philosophy that there is no recording technique or method which is absolutely perfect forever. Rather, it should be the job of a good recording team to use the best technical equipment available at any given time to experiment in the interests of the music, and to endeavor to provide the technical support in order to portray clearly the ideas of the composer and of the performing musicians. (…) Really audiophile sounds are only found where excellent musicians get the best out of excellent instruments and themselves. And the result is music! If you are not content to just listen to the excerpts on this album, you must simply listen to TACET's entire program.

Jean-Claude Risset (b 1938) is a French composer of electronic music. Arriving at Bell Labs in 1964, he used Max Mathew's MUSIC IV software to digitally recreate the sounds of brass instruments. He made digital recordings of trumpets and then studied their timbral composition using "pitch-synchronous" spectrum analysis tools, revealing that the harmonics of these instruments would differ greatly depending on pitch, duration and loudness. From 1975-79, he became IRCAM's computer music director and worked in close collaboration with the likes of Pierre Boulez.

It does not take very long to realize that this is a nicely put together record. The singing is intense in somewhat of a Springsteen/David Eugene Edwards (Woven Hand) manner, but unique from them. The surrounding instrumentation weaves in and out in a folk rock manner at times and works as a full throttle rock band at others. The Singer-Songwriter category does not quite do justice to the songs. I would say rock fans will like this more than people wanting straight folk, but it has a good general appeal to both the crowds seeking lighter thoughtful material and those that want a good rock beat. The music is rather universal and what is truly interesting is that the California duo behind this band has historically done so much better in Europe than in the US. While I often can understand why some great European born music may not translate as well in the US (and vice versa), I have never understood why several great US bands (Wipers, 16 Horsepower) do so much better in Europe. Add this band to that list, as US listeners need to join in. I believe this album of eleven original songs comes with a bonus CD containing a full live set. (David Hintz)
