Pinhas, Richard - Chronolyse 180 gram white vinyl lp + download code (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)
"...ranges from industrial drones (during pre-industrial times) to earth-shaking rock to pre-new age visions of beauty." � Alternative Press
Richard Pinhas has long been recognized as a pivotal figure in the development of combining rock music with electronics. Years before MIDI existed, Richard was creating sophisticated electronic music using vast walls of the available components of the day. Both as a solo artist and with his band Heldon, he released a number of advanced and classic albums in the 70s that set the stage for much of what is thought of as 'contemporary music'.
Originally released only in France in 1977, Chronolyse was his second solo album. It includes one side of solo, live Moog synthesizer pieces, notable for their wide, stereo field and unique sound - a product of the weeks he spent setting up and programming the sounds on his huge Moog modular synthesizer and one side with a lengthy, stormy, drone-filled, epic of mellotrons, electronics, guitar, bass and drums by Heldon.
This is the first-ever vinyl reissue of this classic, which has been unavailable on vinyl for 35 years!
