Spanning 1966-1993, Mémoire Magnétique Vol. 2 is a revelatory collection of short and secret music by electronic music pioneer Bernard Parmegiani.
From the start, Parmegiani's work was closely linked to the screen, with dozens of documentaries, films, long features, animation films but also musical pieces for dance, stage or television. If many of his pieces are landmarks in the history of electroacoustic music (De Natura Sonorum, La Roue Ferris...), his application music compositions are strongly embedded in the subconscious landscape of the French public (Stade 2, Roissy Paris Airport...).
The second volume of this compilation allows us to discover some of unreleased rarities from Bernard Parmegiani's personal archives and unpublished recordings which were composed for the screen or the performing arts.
French composer Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013) is an essential figure of contemporary music. His work, very diversified, is essentially devoted to electroacoustic music of which he is one of the pioneers. He was a founding member of the Groupe de recherches musicales (GRM) from 1960 to 1992.
