Spacey piano work from Jordan De La Sierra – material that's clearly informed by the 60s experiments of La Monte Young and Terry Riley, but which also has a more open, spiritual quality too! The piano has a nice sense of tuning – one that's almost watery at points – and Jordan's ... read moreCD

Neither ... CD Hat Now (Switzerland), 1990. Used ...
The first-ever recording of Morton Feldman's Neither – billed as an "opera", but unlike anything you're likely to hear at the Met! Instead, the piece has a depth and darkness that rivals most of Feldman's key compositions – full of sonic textures and offbeat tones, presented ... read moreCD
Bold clusters of sound from pianist Philip Thomas – working here on a series of very inventive compositions by Christopher Fox!

The "Serge" here isn't Serge Gainsbourg – but a very weird, very wild Serge synthesizer – played by Bob Ostertag in a series of vintage performances! Some tracks have Bob mixing his electronics with radio, or cassette tape, or even a contact mic – and the music is often ... read moreCD
