Jean-Marc Foussat favourites.

Jean-Marc Foussat, on EMS Synthi AKS, is a veteran who has sparred with Bill Laswell and Jac Berrocal, and his 1983 Abattage is a highly regarded slice of (literally) open-window improv. The Togo-Lyon funk connection.

Jean-Marc Foussat, born in 1955, is a French-Algerian composer of electroacoustic music who lives and works in France.

Jean-Marc Foussat has been played on NTS shows including S K Y A P N E A, with Images & Jalousies first played on 5 December 2016. Original source Last.

A beautiful solo album by experimental nstrumentalist Jean-Marc Foussat. The album is clearly dedicated to Victor Foussat, a young poet and painter who died this year. One of his paintings his reproduced on the inner sleeve, and Jean-Marc recites a poem of his in-between the two 20-minute tracks that make up the album. I rarely cross paths with Foussat’s music, but each opportunity is a delight. The two pieces here are powerful amalgams of synths and objects.
