"Recorded December 1980 - April 1983.
Words based on a novel by H.P. Lovecraft.
Fantastic cosmic, space, ambient and experimental music from mysterious French duo Annanka Raghel and Ivan Coaquette (formerly of Spacecraft and Musica Elettronica Viva). Originally released in 1983 as a limited edition cassette packed in an oversized match box with matches on Camouflage label ;
Fondation was a two piece band: Annanka Raghel on keyboards, voice and reciting and Ivan Coaquette on guitar, bass, synthesizer, percussion.
Each track starts with short spoken word piece which is from H.P. Lovecraft. . 'Le Vaisseau Blanc' in some respects
representing a last hurrah for this aesthetic dimension of the French underground scene, with hallucinogenic webs of delayed electronics and wetly effected guitars weaving vapor trails around one another in a manner directly descended from the Heldon/Lard Free school.
Ivan Coaquette and Anannka Raghel, are tunneling ever deeper
into the filter swept and cyclically overlapping recesses of their
synths and rhythm machines.
Comes in an gatefold album sleeve with beautiful artwork from archives from Ivan Coaquette collages. Limited to 500 copies."
