Release Date:06/23/2017;Notes:Limited clear vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket from Stoughton Printing. Features a 36-page booklet with unreleased archival photos and an essay by Simon Reynolds (Retromania, Shock and Awe). Archive collection containing super rare tracks from early private press releases. Meticulously restored and remastered from original sources. Jean-Jacques Perrey was a pioneer of electronic pop music celebrated for his uniquely whimsical sampled soundworld, his groundbreaking style of rhythmic tape editing, and his early use of the Moog modular synthesizer. Perrey was also the world's only virtuoso of the Ondioline, a remarkable French proto-synthesizer from the 1940s. Jean-Jacques Perrey et son Ondioline focusses on this early period of Perrey's musical life, exploring his intimate relationship with this unusual and expressive instrument. The compilation features never-before-released collaborations with Angelo Badalamenti and Dick Hyman, early arrangements from test pressings of beloved Perrey tunes, and cuts from highly collectible albums of early library music he recorded. Also featured is a rare extended demonstration of the Ondioline, which receives it's first commercial release. A must for dedicated fans, and a vibrant introduction for new listeners, this release canvasses Perrey's unparalleled mastery of the Ondioline, points towards his later sample and Moog work, and illuminates a heretofore little-explored melancholy side to his recorded work. Curated by long-time Perrey fan and recent collaborator Wally de Backer (Gotye), this is the first release on Forgotten Futures, a new record label set up by de Backer to excavate lost works by pioneering producers and musical instrument inventors.
