Urban Sax was created in 1973. Gilbert Artman, the mastermind behind Lard Free -who has also participated in dozens of recordings by other artists of the French experimental scene that included Delired Chameleon Family, Clear Light, Komintern, etc.- developed an interest in the relation between space and sound. He organised a first experiment that took place in the town of Menton, in the South of France. Artman strategically placed 18 saxophonists, and their sound reverberated through all the village. As time went by the band increased and currently their performances count with up to 34 saxophonists, 1 bass player, 3 percussionists, 2 dancers and 8 vocalists, with a line up that varies depending on each particular project. You can find saxophonists playing over rooftops, or climbing down buildings or arriving in helicopters. It is a fascinating experience that can be hardly translated to vinyl, but through the years they have recorded some of their music and here we are proud to offer vinyl reissues of those works, including one previously released on vinyl format!

Urban Sax's music is constructed over the concept of ''continuous sound', around which build and develop poly-rhythmic loops, modulated and nested in a partition and a principle of 'distant sound' allowing to question the listening audience. It is about linking audio and visual performances. The music is semi repetitive, with evolving pieces of different colors. Entire saxophone family is represented: sopranos, altos, tenors and bass baritones...' (Wikipedia).

'This is some amazing shit right hyah, folks. Imagine something like, say, a concert band playing outtakes from Magma's 'Theusz Hamtaahk' trilogy. You'd possibly arrive at this.' (...) 'Everything starts with this massive (and I mean it...we're basically talking about something the size of an orchestra here) wash of sound, like something dropped wholesale out of the trippier parts of Ligeti's material in the '2001' soundtrack. Then we get swept into the primal repetition of a simple motif...very Magma-like, save for the obvious difference in forces. As the proceedings go on, it gets more complex; another wash, and then into another primal minimalist cycling with strange, otherworldly drones and choral voices in the background, chuffing percussion...and then a drift off into Ligeti-land again, with chanting vocals following, and huge gusts of wind from the sax players breathing thru their horns as some sort of Saturnian Sun Ra lullabye starts to course through the group. And that's just the first half. This is some potent stuff. It's very much 'ritual music', as one would expect with it being composed for Urban Sax's ritualistic performances. And it's quite trippy, especially for something largely acoustic (although there are four presumably electric guitars in the forces) with little electronic tinkerage to enhance the strangeness.' (...) 'There are some other recordings in Urban Sax's catalog, but this is perhaps the most amazing, most trippy of them all.' Extracts from a review by Lugia from Julian Cope's Head Heritage website

Fraction sur le temps was originally released in 1986 on Celluloïd.

The Wah Wah reissue reproduces the original sleeve artwork, comes in remastered sound and lacquer cut by Lex Van Coeverdeen @ The Vinyl Room for improved performance and features a booklet with photos and liner notes written by Gilbert Artman himself.
