Pierre Bastien
Blue As an Orange
Morphine Records
Catalogue Number
Release Date
January 29, 2016


French composer and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Bastien has been active for over four decades, receiving attention for his work building automated orchestras. His previous album, Machinations, was released via Rephlex in 2012, and his latest, Blue As An Orange, lands on the great Morphine. On Blue As An Orange, Bastien uses recycled and reassembled parts (including motors, fans, rattles, paper, and nails) to generate his rhythms. Elsewhere, live instruments include the African Kundo harp, Javanese rabab, sanza, electric harpsichord and gongs. As unconventional as those instruments might be, the album is filled with nuance, the pieces sounding warm and focused.
