Perpetrating the fertile collaboration initiated in 2012 with Recollection GRM, INA GRM and Editions MEGO offer the Portraits GRM complementary series, no longer focused on the “classic” GRM repertoire but towards recent creations commissioned by the GRM to artists from all horizons. Under the aegis of François J. Bonnet
, the Portraits GRM series focuses on important and emerging figures of the experimental music scene
and highlights the notion of work rather than album. By reaffirming the concept of musical work, the Portraits GRM series seeks to renew with the pioneering work that the GRM Collection series but also the Philips Prospective 21e Siècle collection had achieved so admirably: offer a panorama of current musical experimentations and embrace a more durable scope with works that manage to extract themselves from an increasingly tyrannical and increasingly hazardous present-time. At a time when nothing knows how to “leave a mark”, this series aims to address both current listeners, and explorers of the future. Many releases in the collection are contemporary works by two different musicians, each piece taking up the space of one side. Longer works however, fill an entire record.
