Jean Schwarz - Chantakoa _ And Around | avec Michel Portal (1989)

Jean Schwarz' 'Chantakoa,' for solo clarinet and "tape", is played by Michel Portal. While the clarinet has been made electronic, the acoustic sound is preserved. 'And Around' is something of a follow-up to Schwarz's 'Surroundings' for two jazz musicians and a tape of American sounds.
Excellent electroacoustic pieces, a colorfulsoundcanvas! Impressive!!

Thanks for this. I was looking for the record for a long time, as it was accidently destroyed some time ago. Schwarz's control over "the deck" is astonishing. One of the most impressive electroacoustic adventures with jazz elements, in my opinion.
