Guy Reibel - Douze Inventions en Six Modes de Jeu LP 26879
All music composed by Guy Reibel . Commissioned by ina-GRM, Groupe de Recherches Musicales, Radio France, in 1979. "Guy Reibel is one of the most enigmatic figures in the post-war electronic music scene.

This LP documents how Guy Reibel succeeded to compose a music that combines the density and purity of electronic music with an unbelievable sound sensuousness. A real listening experience, here released for the very first time! „ - Reinhold Friedl
