LP version. Following Le Cut-Up Populaire (BEC 5676465/5676466, 2020), Pascal Comelade announces the release of his new album Le Non-Sens Du Rythme. Since his first record published in 1975, Pascal Comelade, a child of the frenzy rock of the '60s and '70s, has developed a profuse body of work including many musical collaborations (PJ Harvey, Robert Wyatt, Jaki Liebezeit (Can), Lee Ranaldo, The Liminanas...) and non-musical collaborations (Jeanne Moreau, Sergi Lopez, Jean François Stévenin, Bob Wilson...) His compositions are reminiscent of MC5, Erik Satie, Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone, Suicide: a language that dances on a musical skeleton in perpetual movement by successive fusions, mixing folklore and underground, repetitive music and French chanson, pataphysical riffs and toy instruments. As a multiple artist, he has developed an aesthetic approach via a particular link to visual arts. He draws, paints and occasionally performs with painters Miquel Barcelo and Hervé Di Rosa. On his new album, Le Non-Sens Du Rythme (to be translated "the nonsense of rhythm", the title says it all), Pascal Comelade almost plays all the instruments, not only multiple pianos but also the Rickenbaker e.bass, the Indian Harmonium, various keyboards, and even the tin can. He remains the undisputed master of the instrumental ritornello inspired by popular music as well as krautrock.
