Lionel Marchetti – L’incandescence de l’?toile

Lionel Marchetti is a French composer who has been very active lately. With releases on Metamkine and Staalplaat, he is one of the upcoming composers in the field of ambient-concrete-noise music.

This Mini-CD contains material that reminds me most of a noisey and less subtle version of the works of Iannis Xenakis, the legendary Greek composer and one of the founders of ?Musique Concrete?. This means that the material is very good, but it also means that it is a bit unoriginal. After all, the compositions of Xenakis have been around for ages.

Still this is a nice little Mini-CD that is certainly worth checking out. It also comes in a very nice packaging.
