Release Date:11/03/2017;Notes:Discrepant present a magical live recording from the legend that is Pierre Bastien, showcasing his mecanoid orchestra at it's intricate best during a performance at Studio M, the historical studio-concert hall of Radio-Television of Vojvodina, Serbia. Around 1986, French composer and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Bastien started creating and building his own orchestra called Mecanium: an ensemble of musical automatons constructed from meccano parts and activated by electro-motors, that "play" on acoustic instruments from all over the world. On The Mecanoncentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien, the Mecanium plays amplified Meccano parts, drums, reeds, rubber bands, paper, nails, and flutes whilst Pierre plays kundi, rubber band, prepared trumpet, video loops, nail violin, and râbab. Recorded live at Studio M on October 8, 2016. All compositions and live mix by Pierre Bastien. Artwork by Stéphane Blanquet.
