Limited to 400 copies. This ten-LP box set, presented in a deluxe book-like folder in an outer box, covers half a lifetime in musical history. It is more than a regular retrospective; it shares Pierre Henry's personal listening, organized by theme and technology. The box set emphasizes previously unpublished works, and highlights comparisons and contrasts between them. This ultimate anthology covers the first 35 years in the career of the French mastermind of electronic and electroacoustic music, the avant-garde, and musique concrète, enhanced by careful remastering and restoration in correspondence with the artist's intention and approach to the recordings. Transparency, detail, and logical history are the substance of this release.
