Un Drame Musical Instantane - Rideau!
"Rideau! was Un Drame Musical Instantane's second album, originally released in 1980 on the group's own GRRR label. Since its creation in 1976, featuring Jean-Jacques Birge, Bernard Vitet and Francis Gorge, the group has decided to promote collective musical creation, co-signing their albums, which they consider as artworks in themselves, or their live shows which they try to renew every time they play. Un Drame borrowed their sources from rock (synthetizer player Birge and guitarist Gorge, both authors of the album, Defense de); jazz (trumpeter Vitet who founded the first free jazz band in France, together with FranÁois Tusques, as well as Michel Portal who played with many American and European jazzmen); classical modern music; as well as movies or world news; they were the first in France to give a new impetus to live music on silent films. Birge and Gorge also recorded a duo album that was mentioned on the infamous Nurse With Wound list, Defense De. On Rideau, you will hear their wild mix of styles, a very original, unclassifiable, inventive music, which drifts from jazz to electronic music and contemporary music. Remastered in 2016 and with a lot of bonus tracks, amongst them the track that appeared on United Dairies' compilation album "In Fractured Silence" for the first time in its full length!"
