'The Teen Recordings' were recorded
between 1979 and 1981. These are the first and, yet, unreleased
recordings by Vox Populi! As the title suggests, I made them during my
teens (I'm from 1964), with some help from my elder brother Ariel on
vocals, jaw's harp and percussion. I play synth, radio waves, video
games, tapes, bass, guitar, jaw's harp and voices. I must say that we
had a very encouraging family environment. Our father Ado was a great
fan of any kind of unusual and extreme forms of music. I remember very
well my father's PA being blown out by one of the first Whitehouse
recordings ! He was a TV/film director and a writer. My mother Mireille
is a musician and she had worked under Pierre Schaeffer's direction for
a few years at the institution that became soon after the IRCAM. For
sure, they were on our side and they did help in many ways. A big Thank
is due to them.
I hope you'll enjoy these goofy DIY recordings made with very little means.
Wishing to you music lovers all the best,
Axel, for Vox Populi!
