Pascal Comelade is a French-Catalan musician, born in 1955 in Montpellier. Comelade began
making strange cover songs of rock and easy listening standards with such instruments as
singing saw, toy piano etc. He later developed an unconfoundable style, co-operated with artists
like Robert Wyatt, Faust, Jac Berrocal, and PJ Harvey, and even has a tribute band in Japan, the Pascals.

After living for several years in Barcelona in the early/mid 70's, he made his first album,
"Fluences", influenced by electronic music and the group Heldon.
 
Subsequently, his music has become more acoustic and is characterized by the sounds of toy
instruments, used as solo-instruments and as an integral part of the sound of his group, the Bel
Canto Orquestra.

 
This Box is presents his earlier works with focus on his electronic tracks from 1974 to 1983 on LP 1 to LP 4 and includes his first concert with the Bel Canto Orquestra from 1983 on LP 5.
