Ghedalia Tazartes and David’s Demosarus Label
David F strikes again posting another good musical schwag on his blog
Ghedalia Tazartes, the french man who managed to overcome the
Algamarghen label’s strictly conceptual credo by sheer sonic alienation
returns. Employing keyboards, un-trained and trained vocals, with
hustles of influences as varied as Jaques Brel, Henri Chopin, Soweto
pop, Serialism, and new wave. If you have to pin an artist to a
forefather than Tazartes contemporaries lay strictly in the future: The
Talking Heads, Animal Collective, and really that’s about it. Tazartes
never made a theory of his music, instead it’s brazen aesthetics
breathe out an identity that accepts fracture as it’s starting point,
equally at home with retro-synthetic squalls as he is playing what
sounds like paper instruments & a fabricated african tribe chanting
over it. Amazing stuff, perhaps not as good as previous material, but I
haven’t heard the full album yet.
