5 stars Pierre Henry, Pierre Schaeffer, Yannis Xenakis... Some of the great composers of "Musique Concrète"... Well, Vangelis is getting very close to it on this album... No simple melodies like "To the unknown man" from "Spiral" here! No, this serious stuff.

I bought the album when it was released back in 1978, bought a 2nd copy and have it on CD... This real daring music coming from a man who since the 80s hasn't really done anything interesting apart from 1984s "Soil Festivities" (side 1 only)...

The following album "China" 1979 was completely different but showed the man's composition skills... Both are my favourites but "Beaubourg" really keeps intruigingly beautiful.
