Still, Henry had little regard for traditional musical instruments, preferring instead to privately experiment with non-musical sound sources; over time, he grew fascinated with the notion of incorporating noise into the compositional process, and perhaps unsurprisingly first attracted notice in performing circles for his prowess as a percussionist. Henry soon began compiling a "sound herbal," a catalog of any sound potentially useful from a musical standpoint -- everything from animal cries to editing techniques to speed variations, all of which he deemed superior to conventional instrumentation.
Throughout the decade to follow his music adopted increasingly spiritual and meditative qualities; 's La Messe de Liverpool, in fact, was commissioned for the consecration of that city's Cathedral of Christ the King. Spoken Biblical text was also prominent in L'apocalypse de Jean, which was debuted in Paris on October 30, at a hour celebration of Henry's music.
A year later, he premiered Ceremony, which included music by the pop band Spooky Tooth. During the mid-'70s, Henry's project frequently paid homage to his own inspirations -- 's Futuriste celebrated the Italian futurist Luigi Russolo and Le Jardin - Pierre Henry - La Reine Verte work The Art of Noises, while 's La Dixieme Symphonie served as a follow-up to Beethoven's nine symphonies.
