1. Product Details

Originally recorded in 1977 following a limited release in 1979 Ghdalia Tazarts debut album Diasporas introduced listeners to the surreal mysterious and truly unclassifiable statement of Tazarts and his out-of-time place in the French avant-garde canon. Born in Paris in 1947 to Judaeo-Spanish parents of Greek descent Tazarts spent his early career as an autodidact utilizing his knowledge of repetition and collage coupled with his Ladino linguistic heritage to create some of the most unique recordings of the late 20th century. Interest in the works of Tazarts truly sparked when artist Steve Stapleton included his follow up album Tazarts Transports in his famed Nurse With Wound List thus adding endless curiosity to the folklore behind Tazarts and his mystical entre. From the onset of Diasporas looping incantations seemingly pile up at the behest of Tazarts. In almost a prayer-like decree Tazarts chants to the gods in an undefined whail that is both haunting and spiritually divine. Tazarts unique use of tape loops to capture the disappearing traditions of his familys past creates an atmospheric texture that unexpectedly complements his cut-up manipulated vocal experiments. While contemporaries within the French avant-garde maneuvered academic theory and rigid tradition Diasporas strays away from these boundaries working in Tazarts invented practice of impromuz a method in which he endlessly records for hours and edits only the moments that display any sense of spontaneous enlightenment. Further emboldening the obtuse nature of Diasporas are the seemingly random recitation of poet Stphane Mallarm and the traditional Parisian-style piano accompaniment of experimental composer Michel Chion. Since its initial release over 40 years ago both Dais Records and Alga Marghen have released reissues of Diasporas in various formats all of which quickly fell out of print. Dais Records presents an official reissue newly remastered by Josh Bonati utilizing the original artwork of Diasporas in its sole album form for the first time in over four decades.
