"Le Voyageur"[1] (1972) is a seven inch single by Heldon. It features Nietzsche lyrics recited by Deleuze on music by Richard Pinhas:

“He who has attained the freedom of reason to any extent cannot, for a long time, regard himself otherwise than as a wanderer on the face of the earth - and not even as a traveller towards a final goal, for there is no such thing. But he certainly wants to observe and keep his eyes open to whatever actually happens in the world; therefore he cannot attach his heart too firmly to anything individual; he must have in himself something wandering that takes pleasure in change and transitoriness.” –from The Wanderer, in the first volume of Nietzsche’s Human, All Too Human

Original French version:

« Qui est parvenu, ne serait-ce que dans une certaine mesure, à la liberté de la raison ne peut rien se sentir d’autre sur terre que voyageur, - pour un voyage, toutefois, qui ne tend pas vers un but dernier : car il n’y en a pas. Mais enfin, il regardera, les yeux ouverts à tout ce qui se passe en vérité dans le monde ; aussi ne devra-t-il pas attacher trop fortement son cœur à rien de particulier ; il faut qu’il y ait en lui une part vagabonde, dont le plaisir soit dans le changement et le passage… » --ibid

The b-side of the single was "Torcol."
