$27.00

Melbourne's Left Ear Records follow their impeccable Antipodean Anomalies compilation with this delightful reissue of Percussions Pour La Danse, a 1989 collaboration between American contemporary dance instructor Tony Kenneybrew and French musician Jean-Pierre Boistel. Shimmery, sunnily percussive cosmic music intended to accompany Kennybrew's students while dancing "slowly, rapidly and [changing] speeds without changing the tempo!” With this intention as its foundation, the music was composed along the principle of the “Balance of The Walk”: in 4 times, in 6 times, in 7 times & in 3 times. Kalimba, Talking Drum and Sanza are used alongside computer assisted programming to sample and layer Boistel's hand-played instrumentation to blissful effect.
