Level of familiarity before listening
I have no familiarity with this.
What I expected
The album cover describes this as:
THE NEWEST SOUND OF DEBUSSY
Virtuoso electronic performances of Debussy’s beautiful tone paintings by TOMITA
So if I understand correctly, a Japanese fellow named Tomita recorded some of Debussy’s works as techno music with a synthesizer.
What it was actually like
I thought there was a chance that this might be good, but it was sort of space agey sound effects crap, weird for the sake of being weird.
Arabesque No. 1 was the worst track, with sound effects that sounded like the adults speaking in a Charlie Brown cartoon.
Golliwog’s Cakewalk was also particularly cartoonish.
Why not just listen to Debussy?
2/5: bad, but I was able to listen to the whole thing
