Camille Sauvage "7 drums concerto" Crea Sound, 197?

In its own particular way, this is a kind of Exotica LP for a lunar or industrial landscape. Side one is an experimental suite for a large orchestra full of percussive instruments (hence the title, "7 drums concerto"), side two is made of various proto electronic tracks (notably one of my all time favorite Library Music track, "Ballet vaudou"). The composer of this record, Camille Sauvage also used the pseudonym of Eric Framond and as such released a number of Psych/Jazz LP's on the Montparnasse 2000 label.
Jonny Trunk's Music Library book tells us that the Crea Sound label started in 1970 possibly as an extension of the french Neuilly label, it is surely linked to an other Library label, Mondiophone, the catalogue number of this Crea Sound release is even "Mon 34".

It's hard to believe that such an impressive piece of experimental work has been recorded with any hope of potential commercially speaking, even with the peculiar field of background music in mind. By the way, if the electronic effects on side two remind you of the "Jungle obsession" LP, the reason is surely the electronic effects engineer...Nino Nardini !

See you soon !

The zip file contains high resolution cover scans and tracks encoded at 192 kbps.

thanks for sharing this, great record. But a points it sounds like your earth cable is disconnected from the amp when you recorded it in. Or maybe it was the original in which case my bad!

Blogger whoops said...

frankly i eat apples, i've listen to the rip one more time and i hear no electrical problem on it. Maybe you're fooled by the fact that when i rip i'm connected to a mix desk and i play with the high and low button until i find the good sound, i may have put too much low frequencies on this one wich cause the natural background noises to appear louder.

Please can you re-record this fine LP...I really like it but the ground hum really spoils it.

I know for a fact this hum is a grounding problem. The most common way this noise is created is when the ground lead from the turntable to the amp or mixer becomes detached....but there are other ways such a grounding problem can be created..

The Les Baxter LP is also displaying this hum...

By the way you have a lovely selection of music on your blog, keep it up....

Regards Malcolm

Am i the target of a bunch of six million dollar men with bionic ears or what ?
Same answer as above, when i put the headphones and the volume up i hear something yes, but only a deaf person won't hear something in this conditions. I'm really quite sure that this is not electrical but mechanical, it is the friction of the needle on the wax push up by a little too much low frequencies. I may be wrong, but after checking my turntable connections, listening to this rip and others closely for several times, this my conclusion. I may reconsider ripping this LP again in the future with less low frequencies but certainly not right now.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Please don't change the EQs or frequencies when recording your records, try to keep it as neutral as possible and as close to the original recordings as possible.

The hum to which I refer is not related to the rumble created by the needle...

And unfortunately this buzzing(hum) is in evidence to varying degrees on all of the other records I've downloaded from you(André Popp, Nancy Holloway, The Heaven Blues, Les Baxter, Janko Nilovic and this one)

Get someone who knows what they are doing to help you resolve this....

Regards Malcolm (with bionic ears and a DJ and sound engineer since about 20years.....)

PS> Please don't take this as an insult or me trying to get at you..I am only trying to help...

Malcolm, you may be a sound engineer, a dj, steve austin or Pierre Boulez in person, what i'm trying to tell is that i've been ripping vinyl lps for more than 2 years now and no one never complain about my rips and what is much more important to me I never had to complain about my own rips and when i had to complain about one of them i've redone it.
I got a friend who had the kind of problem that you describe and believe me his rips goes bzzzzzz from the beginning of A side to the end of B side, this is what i call a problem, not this really tiny background noise. I may not be a professional DJ (i'm a social worker and i work with homeless people), but i won't let you say that my vinyl rips are not of quality.
More over Mr Malcolm anonymous i will keep my rip neutral if i want it to. I do not rip to please your professional ears but to please my amateur ones and if my amateur ears wants a little more bass, this is what they'll get, believe this is still real close to the original sound.
Ho yes, one last me a favor, try to help somebody else.

No Malcolm, i'm not telling that you are an ignorant rude arrogant twat. Try to picture this. Ok, nobody told me to share vinyl on the net and i do it freely...But, try to think of the time it took me to rip these lps, to scan the covers, to put them on rapidshare and to think about something intelligent to tell about the records...and then suddenly, somebody tells you (in a more polite way, i agree, but the result is the same), 2 of your rips are shit !
First i listen closely to the incriminate rips and i try to figure what's going on, but nothing strike me, i mean i do hear something who looks like a background noise but nothing really striking.
ok, so i answer the person (with some irony i agree)and this very person told you suddenly that all of your rips are shit.
What did you expect Malcolm ? Something like " thank you for your good advice"

You won't listen so I will tell you..

It is a waste of time downloading this and you are wasting the time of many people by posting poor quality recordings....

This recording is bad and the buzz makes it intolerable to listen to..

And this buzz is so easily resolved..could be you only need to reverse the 2pin plug in the wall socket...(pity the French have no proper earth on many household electrical circuits..)your whole earth circuit on your system (between each part, amp, mixer, turntable and even the soundcard on the PC) needs to be a ground potential zero...

Your friend obviously needs to understand this simple principle too.

So fix it you arrogant twat.

That's a pathetic answer, and i'm fed up with all this miserable dialogue so i will switch to blogger only comments. Don't worry, your comments will stay there for a while so that people will be aware of the fact that for some like you my rips are not of good quality. It's up to them to download or not.

Blogger archigram said...

Well, your rips sound great to me, and I REALLY APPRECIATE the work you put into it! I'm a somewhat audiophile and this buzz isn't even registering on my frequency wave. I didn't really notice it and so it doesn't bother me. Keep up the great work Whoops!

8:06 AM  
Blogger whoops said...

Thanks for your support norm, but what anonymous told me stayed in my mind so i checked every possible connections, i cleaned everything and i discovered a small cut in the ground cable under the turntable. So this is the explanation for the variation in volume of this electric buzz, now everything is back to normal.
Anonymous was right after all, but it seems like he told me this at the wrong time and in the wrong way. I don't make apologies, i simply want him to know that i'm not the deaf asshole he thought that i was.

I downloaded this album today and hardly noticed any real audible buzz. The sound quality is clear and acceptable, certainly couldn't pick any "buzz". The music itself is fantastic! Thank you for posting this, I'll be recommending it to friends.

well, it never ceases to amaze.
even when you give away amazing
music for FREE the blowhards of this world will still find something to complain about...
malcolm, if you feel so strongly
about getting a "neutral" recording
of the album, than might i suggest
you BUY the album. i'm fairly certain that oopswoops is providing
these rips as an educational resource, only a complete idiot would expect that a downloaded rip would compete with listening to
the actual album as a listening experience. also funny to note that the complainers are almost always "anonymous" users who contribute nothing to the blogging world, and therefore have no conception of the effort required to produce a blog of this quality.
oopswhoops keep up the great work,
your rips sound great to me, and even if they sounded like ass, i wouldnt complain about the chance to hear interesting music free...

Just my opinion, but I think if someone offers ANY sort of chance to hear these recordings, I am very grateful. The recording quality in earlier eras was not so hot to start, and if you want the job done differently, do it yourself. My deep gratitude is yours.

Copmaq presario 2500 maybe 7+ years old. How do I get this thing to run faster. When we boot it up it takes 5 - 10 minutes before you can use anything, any sooner than that it will freeze up. The anti virus recently expired and anything I tried to put onto it totally screwed it up. After Mcafee I couldnt get anything to run. I took that off and am using a free avg for now. But seriously everything is so slow on this thing what can I do to get it running faster? Yeah I know throw it away and get a new one. Not that easy its my GF's and she loves it. We use my computer primarily but when im busy on mine or just every now and then she likes to use hers. [url=]santoramaa[/url]
