May 2022; long in the C.P. "chambre de gestation", this collection of the impeccable 1982-83 trio of releases by French Composer Alain Saverot (not to be confused with the GRM-adjacent & equally superb... French Composer Alain Savouret) as issued "Privately" across a pair of "Kiosque D'Orphee" LPs (you should be familiar with the label/pressing-plant - the French "EMI Custom" if you will - from the Parmegiani "Le Socrate" single they had a hand in) & a label-less third exactly 40 years back finally reaches fruition.

Presented here (in no particular order, albeit saving the best for last) we start with "Ballade Rustique" (#KO/82.0612), followed by "Tirage De Tête" ("Headshot," #KO/82.0904), then finally, "Original Magma" (#83 AS 3 MC 1). The latter is, personally, the pick of the litter; aside from the rampant "Plundering" of early 'Floyd (there is just. no. way. in. hell. that this could be reissued in any other context) the energy levels and edits-per-second ratios are pinned throughout, causing a fairly obnoxious blend of Gallic Free-Folk excesses, rampant tape-munge and raw bruitage.

If the Philippe Doray title ([CP 215 CD]) moored your tugboat, or if you're a fan of the fantastic & sorely missed (R.I.P.) ... French Composer Ghedalia Tazartès, consider Saverot the seldom-discussed missing link between the sensibilites of the two.
