1. regionální (= Interpretace) - Ave Legionars (CZCH 199?)
"1. regionální" was another moniker name for another experimental INTERPRETACE recording from the 1990s.
"1.regionální" means "1st regional" and was meant as a joke because after the "Velvet Revolution" in Czechoslovakia it was fashionable to name firms for instance "1st regional building" and thus INTERPRETACE took that name...
This collection of short pieces is titled "Ave Legionars" because the brother of Richard Charvat's grandfather was in that legion...
What we get to hear is a selection of avantgarde/experimental tracks, that use various sound snippets from the radio (e. g. JOHN CAGE's voice) for good effect. The last track "Tanyny" is some music that was used for a puppet theatre/ballet; it was a mix of recycled samples from previous recordings from the 80ties with folk song motives (for example "Ta naše písnička česká" - this Czech song is played in weird manner at the beginning and the end of that track on accordeon). The song was assambled from 5 homemade CD-Rs.
My personal favourite track: "nálet na londýn"
Enjoy - and don't forget to check out the older INTERPRETACE-posts!
