Bernard Szajner | Superficial Music

First in a series of expanded CD reissues by visionary French electronic composer Bernard Szajner, who first made his name as a lighting designer for Magma, Gong and the Who. Having invented new instruments such as the laser harp used by Jean-Michel Jarre, Szajner began to record experimental, conceptual albums of his own.
Originally released in late 1981, Superficial Music incorporates elements of his previous album Visions Of Dune played backwards at half speed and treated digitally, as well as the three part suite Oswiecim, an imagining of the Holocaust informed by the experience of his own family. Sometimes harmonious, sometimes unsettling, Szajner's music is never less than extraordinary.
The expanded 65 minute CD features two previously unreleased bonus tracks, recorded in 1982.
