Cameroonian musician Francis Bebey is truly one of a kind. He entered the music scene with his African compositions for classical guitar. He gave recitals while pursuing a career in journalism and then as an international civil servant. The same creative impulse also led him to write pop songs, and some of which (based on novels he had written) became big hits in Africa and in the French-speaking world. But few people know that in the Õ70s, Francis Bebey delved into electronic music. The first electronic keyboards, organs and drum machines offered him new possibilities of totally controlling his compositions. He embraced the technique of Òsound on soundÓ recording (recording several tracks, sequentially juxtaposed on the same tape). This new stage in his musical career included the production of several records (ÒSavannah Georgia,Ó ÒNew TrackÓ, ÒHaitiÓ), rarities both for their creative explorations as well as their manifestations on vinyl. This was a particularly rich period for him, as he tested the limitless possibilities of the medium, and made use of surprising and novel instruments. Incredible sounds Ð in the literal sense of the word Ð would soon appear on the planet BebeyÉ
