ES008.5 Sebastian Gandera - Contre-Sens Cassette
Efficient Space and Julien Dechery follow the impeccable compilation Le Raccourci with an archival cassette offering of Sebastian Gandera’s mysterious mastery. Contre-Sens collects “various cassette albums, rehearsal tapes, demos and answering machine recordings” threaded into two side long stories - sometimes calm, sometimes stormy; weepy, silly and vulnerable. The French composer also known as Eric Morin weaves wistful worlds from childhood piano lessons and university dorm room experiments, equipped with his humble toolbox of piano, field recorder, sampler and four-track recorder in the late 80s and early 90s. Very limited edition of 100 metallic silver C60s, with sleeve design from Steele Bonus; available almost solely direct through ES, but we managed to nab a few!
