Robert AshleyIn Sara, Mencken, Christ & Beethoven There Were Men And Women ... CD
Cramps/EMI (Italy), 1972. Used ... $18.99
Wonderful early work by Robert Ashley – a great example of the way he always brought playfully clever touches to his compositions! As with some of Ashley's other work, the piece is spoken, but heavily processed too – layered back on itself with an aesthetic that's certainly informed by the minimalist generation, but sometimes a bit more offbeat too – with echoes of both the work of Jon Appleton and Steve Reich! Paul DeMarinis handles a lot of electronics alongside the voice of Ashley – and the piece was recorded live at Mills College in 1972, and is based on a text from John Barton Wolgamot. CD

John Cage/Maro AjemianSonatas & Interludes For Prepared Piano ... CD
El (UK), 1950. Used ... $8.99
A classic 1950 recording of John Cage's work for prepared piano – that eerie variation on the conventional instrument, made by sticking all sorts of weird things underneath the strings and hammers! The tracks are all pretty short, and pianist Maro Ajemian presents the work without too much "preparation" – that is, so that the sounds of the piano still come through with some relatively normal tones, even though they're often slightly offbeat and weirdly watery. 19 titles in all – Sonatas 1 through 16, plus 4 interludes!
