A 1972 recording of “Le carrefour de la chaussee d'Antin,” a long sound poem in French by Bernard Heidsieck. In the 1950s and 60s Heidsieck’s poetry readings often incorporated a performance component such as physical gestures or the use of simple props. At that time he also began to experiment with tape recorders, often performing in a sort of counterpoint to his own recorded words. “Le carrefour de la chaussee d'Antin,” captures the spirit of those early experiments, with recorded and electronically processed readings by Heidsieck and many others juxtaposed and mixed with ambient sounds from busy, presumably Parisian, streets.
