A gem from the 80s treasure chest of synth and sample explorations: originally released in 1986 as Michele Musser, Eye Chant is the debut album of Pennsylvanian experimental artist Michele Mercure. It is one of the first to arrive via Freedom To Spend, a new imprint from RVNG Intl from New York which specialises in showcasing self-taught musicians from the 70s and 80s who followed in the tradition of Pierre Schaeffer’s tape manipulations but, despite their noteworthiness, remained largely undiscovered.
