Nu Creative Methods was formed by Pierre Bastien & Bernard Pruvost in the 70's. 
500 copies of their first Lp, Nu Jungle Dances, came out in 1978, on the d'Avantage label. A very few copies were actually sold, despite some excellent critics. The music featured on Nu Jungle Dances is improvised, played with Asian, African and Western instruments. To cut short a long story, let's say the result is human, exotic, and free. Because of the Lp musical qualities, of its scarceness, because of Pierre Bastien and Bernard Pruvost individual works, and maybe because Nu Jungle Dances is on the Nurse With Wound (Steven Stapleton) list, this Lp became cult.




The title of the album Nu Jungle Dances is the very explicit wording of the LP contents. The duo played over twenty instruments, saxophones, prepared piano, double bass, oboe and horn Pakistan, glockenspiel, flute ... From this bric-a-brac (odds and ends) are born as the sounds evoking fairy creations on percussion various of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, People in Sorrow including an Ecuadorian forest atmosphere, sounding animal included too. We hear birds and frogs, a saxophone may borrow the language of the primate like the pachyderm. Nu Creative Methods are at the heart of free music, improvised music totally free and natural. It draws on several continents, not even limited to human activity.

Another interesting information:
The original design was to be black and white, but because of an printer mistake, the cover of this edition of 1978. is white and pink...?!.............



If you find it, buy this album!

  3. VITKO! Pierre Bastien in his early years, never heard this release, only rips of "Le Marchand de Calicot" have the "Superstitions" tape.

    Cheers, Lucky :)

    1. This album, somewhere around 2005, (I think that?) he had re-iusse on CD, but also in a very small limited number of copies, quickly is disappeared from shops, so that it is now really very difficult to get it.

      Regards.

  6. Hi Vitko,
    one more request comment for uploading a lossless rip of "Goa Et Franky Bourlier - Horizon"... I don't want to be demanding but this month, music direction of blog is pretty suitable to Goa's experimentation, i think...
    thanks in advance
    keep on great & obscure music sharing
