|Entering their 20th year of existence, the GOL orchestra, together with the label Planam, celebrates and starts a new program of collaborations: the Gollaboration series. Musique Directe shows the band facing the leaders of Rumanian spectralism, Ana-Maria Avram and Iancu Dumitrescu. Electric and intense spontaneous experiments, on the edge of electroacoustic music and primitive avant-garde. Live recordings in Marseille and Paris with the participation of Ansamblul Hyperion members Petru and Matei Teodorescu on one track. GOL was formed in 1988 in Paris by Jean-Marcel Busson, Frédéric Rebotier, Ravi Sharda and Samon Takahashi. The quartet embodies, within a post-Dada spirit, a lost rural tradition. GOL plays flute, horns, guitar, violin, toys, self-manufactured instruments, tapes, turntables, voices, various percussion instruments and electronics, an appropriateness of both traditional string instrument and handmade low fi equipment. GOL's first LP, issued in 1993, compiles their first items ('88-'92) based on vinyl-record scratching, tape cut-ups and acoustic instruments. The issuing of this LP was followed by a 9-year hibernation. Since 2002, the band is back together to pursue its common research and play together with instinct and invention. Their music, electroacoustic-oriented, is partially improvised and partly tense. At the time of a collaboration with Rumanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu, GOL developed a score system renowned as 'layer's leaf .' Through this system, they could elaborate a hybrid music between orchestral conduct and free interpretation of movements. Edition limited to 300 copies, also including the improvisation sketch for 'Musique Directe V' (not on the record).
