“Jeita” (1970) originally appeared on an LP in the mythical Silver Series on Philips in the early ’70s. This piece was assembled out of sound material partly recorded in front of a live audience in an actual cave. “Straight away, I realized I had duplicated this large machine which turns time into form flowers by means of billions of busy and regular [water] drops—an immense clock—and I had created a man-size clock for the ear.” Heavy natural reverb, echoes, water droplets, site workers, instruments, etc. are all transformed into abstract hazes of the finest order, hence the quote, “This is not a cave!” Also including “L’infini Du Bruit” (1980-1999) and “Jeita—A Return” (1985-1999), this release comes in a deluxe fold-out digi-pak with old and new photos of the composer and the original cave concert.
