Pierre Henry, Paroxysms

World premiere

Pierre Henry, Paroxysms World premiere


Pierre Henry is the father of musique concrete, and pioneered most of the recording techniques musicians use today.

His reputation outpasses the frontiers of pure classical and French musics. In 1967, he composed Psyché Rock, an internationally successful track remixed from then on by many DJs and bands (Willy Orbit, Stereolab, Fatboy Slim, Christopher Tyng for the US TV show Futurama, Moog Cookbook...). Pierre Henry is a spiritual leader for generations of artists who still enjoy the discoveries and the daring and visionary experiments of the composer.
