Ghédalia Tazartès - R.I.P.

Postby Darkness_Fish » 10 Feb 2021, 10:08

I'm not sure how many here will have ventured as far into the world of oustsider art to have delved into and appreciated Ghédalia Tazartès, but since algroth chose a track in a Cup a few years ago, he's been a real firm favourite of mine. I guess he first became known through the notorious Nurse With Wound list, and to my mind his music eclipses not only just that of the other artists on the list, but NWW themselves. Uncompromising and unique, he really ploughed his own furrow with strange, immersive works. Here's the great man playing live, and talking a little about his music in 2014:

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
