Urban Sax was founded in 1973 by French experimental musician Gilbert Artman, a.o. the mastermind behind Lard Free. Driven by his interest in the relation between space and sound, he experimented with large groups of saxofonists, varying from 16 to 34 players, at times also including bass players, percussionists, vocalists and even dancers. An early experiment took place in the French village of Menton, where Artman placed the musicians on rooftops, in various streets, on squares, and in gardens. Though the total experiences of these experiments/events can't be captured on whatever sound carrier, several recordings were made through the years. Originally released by the Celluloid label in 1986, and also including some electric guitar and electronic elements, 'Fraction Sur Le Temps' may very well be the trippiest of Urban Sax' releases. This reissue comes with remastered sound and a booklet offering rare pix and liner notes by Artman himself.
