Cecile Schott's cult conceptual classic from 2006 Colleen Et es Boites A Musique was commissioned by France Culture's Atelier De Creation Radiophonique as a one-off broadcast. Using almost exclusively the tones and textures of music boxes, Cecile has created a wholly unique music universe that's at once familiar and comforting in an almost dreamlike way yet alluring and alien in its experimental layers and creative approach to form. With echoes of familiar ditties and stretched aesthetics that get really far-out and perplexing, this really is a unique piece of contemporary experimental composition. Available for the first time on vinyl, and limited to 750 Record Store Day, this won't hang around.
