1976-1979: four years of intensive creativity for Heldon, following on from them leaving the home-studio on the Île Saint-Louis for Davout also in Paris, where a Moog 3, purchased from the Beatles, was ready in a space reserved for the leader of the group, Richard Pinhas. From here on, a trilogy was created which compares favorably with King Crimson of the period from Larks' Tongues In Aspic (1973) to Red (1974), the French band breaking new ground with the electronics used in their music, and the numerous influences they quote, including Fripp and Eno, Philip K. Dick, and Gilles Deleuze. A totally vertiginous experience, the ensemble consisting of Un Rêve Sans Conséquence Spéciale (1976), Interface (1977), and Stand By (1979) can be seen as the sonic climax to Heldon's oeuvre, even its climax, the violence coming from the machines. This Everest of electronic music is completed by a rare single released on RCA at the same period, making this a must-have box set for any self-respecting collector. High quality mastering from Richard Pinhas's original masters. Each LP comes in exclusive vinyl color for the boxset: Un Rêve Sans Conséquence Spéciale comes on clear yellow vinyl; Heldon . 6 . Interface comes on coke bottle green vinyl; and Stand By comes on electric blue vinyl. Limited box set comes with the rare Richard Dunn 7", originally released in 1978. Includes 20-page booklet with rare photos and an essay by Philippe Robert. Edition of 300.
