Musique Concréte Soundtracks To Experimental Short Films, Vol. 5 & 6 (New England Electric Music Company, 2006)

Last batch of the series and it's a doozy. Time frame has shifted betweem 1970 to 1975, with the soundtracks to three animated films by Piotr Kamler, each pretty great in and of itself. Robert Cohen-Solal has INA-GRM connections, but this and "Les Shadoks" are his only available works, sadly enough. Received conflicting report as to the director of L'Écran Transparent, some saying Parmegiani directed it himself. Can't say that I know!

The fifth volumes contains:
Robert Cohen-Solal - Délicieuse Catastrophe (dir: Kamler, 1970)
Bernard Parmegiani - Le Pas (dir: Kamler, 1975)

And on the sixth we find:
Bernard Parmegiani - L'Écran transparent (dir: Kamler/Parmegiani?, 1973)

Three for three on the films this time! Though be advised that the first and last come from a Russian host and may be a little on the slow-loading side.
