Peter Rehberg (aka Pita) is a composer and performer of electronic audio works, and also the founder of the Editions Mego label. His collaboration with the Paris-based puppeteer and choreographer Gisèle Vienne began in 2001 with the production of the DACM piece ShowroomDummies, followed by Stereotypie in 2003. In 2004, Vienne started to direct under her own name and began to work on pieces collaborating on text with U.S. author, Dennis Cooper. This CD is a document of selected audio parts of all Gisèle Vienne productions made between 2004-2008, except for the epic Kindertotenlieder, whose audio material was presented on the various KTL releases in 2006 and 2007. The range here is vast -- from the upfront noise excess of the I Apologize (2004) tracks to the lonely synth passages which were used in Une Belle Enfant Blonde (2005), and the sad coda used for Jerk, which began as a radio play for Radio France Culture in 2007, before being adapted for stage in 2008. The opening "Murder Version" is a version of the recording of "Meurtre" by Catherine Robbe-Grillet and Jonathan Capdevielle, which was released as a single-sided 12" vinyl in 2005, and is to be considered as a tribute to the Alain Robbe-Grillet film Glissements Progressifs Du Plaisir (1974). Although this material was intended for consumption in a theatrical setting, it has been edited with domestic use in mind, ultimately representing that grey zone where puppetry, literature, contemporary theatre and dance, visual art, and extreme computer music meet.
