May 2023; now a double-disc réédition adding the entirety of the 1987 ADDA LP "La Collonie Penitentiaire" (containing minimal Electronic Music elements recorded at IPEM in 1975) as well as the "Tarte Blandine" single on Pavane. This along w/ the previous expansion including Bruzdowicz's pieces from the other two 80s Pavane LPs on which she's featured, including the bleepy "'Marlos Grosso Brasileiras', Chant D´Amitié Pour Flute, Violon, Clavecin Et Bande Magnetique, Dédié À Marlos Nobre Et Au Trio Baroque" from "Trio Baroque" (ADW 7035) & the plaintive trilogy of "Vivo", "Lento Con Passione", & "Alla Toccata" from the Aquiles Delle Vigne "Messiaen • Bruzdowicz" recital set (ADW 7054). 

Creel Pone treatment of this LP, centering around the majorly slept-on set of dark, minimal, surrealist Electro-Acoustic & Musique Concrète pieces from the Polish composer Joanna Bruzdowicz, a member of the GRM under Pierre Schaeffer’s tutelage between 1968 & 1970 & long-term collaborator of Agnes Varda’s, for whom she scored several films from the mid-80’s on, including “Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse.”

The LP in question consists of the three-part “Homo Faber” suite - composed in Belgium between 1970 & 1975 at the storied IPEM in Ghent -  & a 5-part suite of flute (performed admirably by Marc Grauwels) & electronic miniatures, “Dum Spiro Spero,” composed in 1981. Ranging from edit-heavy Concrète assemblages to more serene & focused tonal studies, this set shows the work on a composer exhibiting complete technical & conceptual control over the early European tape-studio in a way that few truly did - remarkable this music has flown under the radar for so long.
