Originally composed for a documentary on himself directed by filmmaker Jan Vrijman, Musique barbare is a powerful mixture of electric organ fumblings, full-on riots of distorted kettle drum, and assorted percussion-room filigrees, assembled into an extremely edit-heavy suite with tape-speed manipulation.
