Cosmic Alchemy



First solo lp for Claude Perraudin released in 1977. Most of his credits have been as guitarist on other artists productions starting in 1967 with Serge Lama. He also produced several Library works for Patchwork starting in 1973. Perraudin played all instruments on Mutation 24 including guitars, bass, synthesizers, drums and percussion. If you have a close look at that hour glass on the sleeve, it appears the mutation is a sex change. Hmmm

I appreciate your hard work and I keep track with all your possibile posts and I'm very thankful for your shares. This LP is very boring and tasteles, empty. Absolutely ungifted musician without any musical idea at all. Just switched on some synths and were played a few boring chords on guitar. Huh, I can't tell how angry am I for such persons. And this were released and manufactured on expensive systems... I don't critisize you but the LP.

I have to totally disagrtee with nearly everything that Mosfilmprodukt said regarding this recording. I bought this album new back in the late 70s and still cherish it. I think it displays some wonderful composition and a great knack for recording and processing technique.
It's really quite wonderful to see that I am not the only person that owns a copy ;0)
It actually angers you Mosfilmprodukt?
This obscure forgotten little gem of a record angers you?
I shudder to think what effect Radiohead must have on you [they anger even me].

Mosfilmprodukt has some hidden motive. The music is one of the best unknown gems you will ever find. Pure magic!!!

I'm an open person and the same time I'm so much into the synth music like not many other people. I know houndreds of electronic albums and thousands of CDs, LPs I've collected. My only intention is to balance out somehow the weight of the real art and real values and take place away from the worthles productions. This album, the Cosmic Alchemy is one of the worst album I've ever heard, played by mentally childrens for mentally childs. Yes, the music is magic and as a magician I know what it takes to be a magic. I'd NEVER make such shit. This album were released in a way what is a magic to me: how can a shit like this be released and pushed through a 100 thousand USD worths of publishing, pressing, printing system?...
