Beyrouth 66 (Part. 1) D. 15 Minutes de Sonoto-Luddisme CD included in the 2LP features the same tracks in the same order Short info: This first reissue identically features all the elements of the original version : the black and white sleeve with its painting made by Don Jacques Ciccolini, and all musical features popularized by Pascal Comelade (repetitive music, the concept of sequences, and continuous sound). Auto-produced on his own label “Parasite", Comelade mainly uses one instrument for all parts of the album : an EMS/AKS synthesizer. Recorded on K7 and 2 tracks tape recorder Revox A77, “Paralelo” is the most representative album from Pascal Comelade’s electronic times (1974/1981). A part from “Beyrouth 66″, “Musique Ridicule” and “Erratum Musical", the album features a vocal loop (from English composer Gavin Bryars). This reissue comes as 2xLP: the original version gets extended with the second vinyl. C-side : “Séquences Païennes” are extracted from 1978 recording sessions, partially released on a 7″ in 1979 ; then fully reissued in the 6xCD boxset “Rocanrolorama” in 2016. D-side : “15 Minutes de Sonoto-Luddisme", originally entitled “Musique par Correspondance” was recorded between Montpellier and London (1978-1981) with David Cunningham (member of the Flying Lizards and producer for Michael Nyman and This Heat)
