Two records releases in October on Discrepant and Un je-ne-sais-quoi

October 2017 will see the release of two records of Pierre Bastien, with The Mecanocentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien to be published by Discrepant (LP/digital / CREP48, release 27th October 2017), and Phantoms (with Eddie Ladoire) on Un je-ne-sais-quoi (LP/digital / UJNSQ-019, release October 13th 2017). Both vinyls are limited editions of 500 copies.

While The Mecanocentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien presents a live recording of Pierre Bastien and his mecanoid orchestra at its intricate best during a performance at Studio M, and an artwork of Stephane Blanquet, Phantoms presents some recordings of the collaboration between Pierre Bastien and Eddie Ladoire initiated in Tours, France, in 2013 themed around dance, with limping dancers, looped skeletons, flying Russians and ancestral rituals.
