Michele Mercure

January 23, 2020

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Michele Mercure, an electronic composer from Springfield, Massachusetts. Throughout the ‘80s, Mercure recorded many minimalist synth pieces, which explore the then-emergent intersection of electronic music and art rock. Some tracks make us think of Tangerine Dream. Beside Herself collects tracks she self-published on cassettes from 1983 to 1990. 1986’s Eye Chant is more experimental.
