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.
