‘Lettre à Brion Gysin’ (1974)

1. ‘Lettre à Brion Gysin’

Bernard Heidsieck, Françoise Janicot, Laurence Lacina, Ricky Stein, voice. Ariel Kalma, saxophone.

Sound letter addressed to Brion Gysin, after he departed from Paris to a London hospital to help cure his cancer. Recorded at Heidsieck’s home in Paris, Quai de Bourbon, 1974. What we have here is 4 layers of improvised vocals using only Brion Gysin’s first and last names as sound source. This rather deranged music would fit nicely in the Nurse With Wound list, I guess.
