Bernard Heidsieck - Respirations Et Brèves Rencontres




"Each piece is name after a poet that Heidsieck is having an imaginary conversation with. In each case he uses the sounds of that poet breathing which have been taken from recordings of that person reading." Improbable but true.

Three CDs that were included in a book published by Al Dante in 1999.

Vertonen - Return Of The Interrobang

CD released on Blake's Crippled Intellect Productions in 2005.
