Philip GlassComplete Sony Recordings (24CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 24CD ... $105.99 119.98
A stunning collection of sounds from the legendary Philip Glass – a complete set of every single one of his recordings for Columbia Records – which is the label at which he did most of his important music! The set's a treasure trove of modernist musical moments – not just a blueprint for minimalist composition near the end of the 20th century, but also a showcase for the many different paths that mode followed over the years – from vocal performances, through solo moments, ensemble explorations, soundtracks, and more. The box features 24 CDs in all, each with mini LP-styled covers, plus all the original liner notes, more discographical notes, and even librettos for all of the operas. In addition to the three important operas – Einstein On The Beach, Satygraha, and Akhnaten – plus early albums like Glassworks, Dance Pieces, and The Photographer – and the soundtrack to Naqoyqatsi, Solo Piano, Dance Nos 1 to 5, Itaipu, Passages, Organ Works, and more – as well as a bonus CD of recent recordings. A beautiful package – and the only time these works have been presented completely together. CD

Egisto MacchiPittura Contemporaneo – Pittura Moderna No 1 & 2 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy 3LP ... $49.99
A beautiful package – the three albums in the Pittura Moderna series by composer Egisto Macchi – all dedicated to modern art in the 20th Century, with individual tracks that are based either on a specific artist, or a style of work – all with musical references to match! There's some moments that are strongly in the territory of Macchi's more avant, outside compositions – those darker tones that have made him the stuff of legend over the years – with odd tones, offbeat woodwinds, and lots of unusual soundshapes that are almost visual in the way they come across – clearly a great illustration of Egisto's genius in scoring. The whole thing's very different than you'd expect if you only know the more playful or funky sides of sound library material – and each track is relatively long, with amazing use of instruments that include piano, vibes, saxophone, and cello. Titles include "Mondrian", "Kandinsky", "Impressionismo", "Chagall", "Optical", "Arte Cinetica", "Lucio Fontana", "Expressionismo Pragmatico", and "Pop Art 1a Parte".

✨✧ Univers ZeroUnivers Zero ... LP
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A seminal release from the French scene of the late 70s – issued by this important group who were kind of post-prog, post-free jazz – but worked in a surprising blend of both! At some level, Universe Zero is an attempt to take 20th Century modes of European composition into the freer space of a small group – especially a younger one like this – and you can definitely hear some larger sonic ideas at play, most directly in the group's use of bassoon, violin, and viola – but also in the way they work with a knowledge of unusual tones and modern phrasings, but perform with more of a spontaneous, collaborative energy. Electric guitar takes equal space alongside harmonium and spinet – and the all-instrumental approach is almost a backward link between prog and avant modernism – but one that wasn't even there in the first place! Titles include "Ronde", "La Faulx", "Malais", "Doctor Petiot", "Complainte", and "Carabosse". (Rock, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pierre HenryOdyssee (10CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1982/Late 2000s. Used 10 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really well-titled collection – given that it features the most important steps in the long musical journey of Pierre Henry – easily one of the most important electronic musicians of the 20th Century! The package offers a heck of a lot of amazing music for the price – and is very heavy on Henry's crucial 60s recordings – including both his funky analogue grooves, and his much more abstract sonic compositions! Much of this material has been issued over the years, but never in a package this complete – and the depth of the sounds here is stunning – a set that should be given as a textbook to anyone who ever thinks about making any sort of electronic music. Works include "Messe De Liverpool (1967)", "Pierres Reflechies (1982)", "Coexistence (1958)", "Mouvement Rhythm Etude (1970)", "La Noire A Soixante/Granulometrie (1967)", "Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir (1963)", "Le Voyage (1962)", "Futuristie (1975)", "Messe Pour Le Temps Present (1967)", "Le Xeme Remix (1998)", "Envol (2010)", "L'Art De La Fugu Odyssee (2011)", "Pulsations (2007)", and the previously unreleased "Le Fil De La Vie", which features cool shakuhachi!

✨✧ Egisto MacchiIl Deserto/Pittura Contemporaneo – Pittura Moderna No 1 & 2 (3CD set) ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really special set – one that features three full albums of rare work from Italian sound library composer Egisto Macchi! First up is Desert – a sound library set, but one that's way more than just a batch of short cues or funky instrumentals – and instead, a richly complicated work from Egisto Macchi that might stand perfectly alongside some of the most compelling experimental sides from Italy in the 70s – especially music on the Cramps label! The tracks here are all quite long, and very conceptual – definitely scored in a way that lives up to the desert in the title (also reflected in the sand-colored cover) – with a mix of odd percussion, unusual string tunings, and all these other sounds filtered through the mix to create this very evocative pastiche of elements – almost with an electronic feel at times, although we think most elements are acoustic – and spun over long passages that include "Il Sahara", "Cammelli", "L'Eco Delle Gole", "Suone Per Un Rito", "Ghibli", and "Sabbia Mobile". Next are the three albums in the Pittura Moderna series – all dedicated to modern art in the 20th Century, with individual tracks that are based either on a specific artist, or a style of work – all with musical references to match! There's some moments that are strongly in the territory of Macchi's more avant, outside compositions – those darker tones that have made him the stuff of legend over the years – with odd tones, offbeat woodwinds, and lots of unusual soundshapes that are almost visual in the way they come across – clearly a great illustration of Egisto's genius in scoring.

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Istruttoria E'Chiusa – Dimentichi ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – as odd bits of sound samples are filtered through these dark sonic textures, string parts, and electronics – all with a style that's very musique concrete overall! Tracks are much longer than usual for a soundtrack too – and the record has an experimental greatness that really stands apart from the film. Titles include "Disordini", "Ordini", "Ergastolo", and "Memento". (Soundtracks, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered, limited edition of 500!)

✨✧ Schoenberg/Webern/BergVienna 1908 to 1914 – Antal Dorati/London Symphony Orchestra (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Mercury, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Conductor Antal Dorati earned his reputation on a range of vivid, colorful recordings with the Minneapolis Symphony – but he could also be a committed modernist when he wanted, as you'll hear on this fantastic set with the London Symphony from 1962! The works here represent some of the sharpest new currents for orchestra in the early 20th century – and Dorati responds wonderful to the challenges, which include as much energy in the rhythms as in the tonal colors. Performances include "Five Pieces For Orchestra (Op 16)" by Schoenberg, "Five Pieces For Orchestra (Op 10)" by Webern, and "Three Pieces For Orchestra (Op 6)" by Berg.

✨✧ VariousMusique Concrete (Candide) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Candide/Modern Silence (Italy), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking collection of the musical style that was known as musique concrete – pulled from key early recordings from the Paris studios of Groupe De Recherches Musicales ORTF! These guys were some of the most important sound scientists of the 20th century – as much technicians as they were musicians – delving into territory that would both influence mainstream composition, and countless other styles to come! The package is filled with heavyweight pieces that will forever change your understanding of space and sound – even all these many decades since their recording – and titles include "Objets Lies" by Pierre Schaeffer, "Tete Et Queue Du Dragon" by Luc Ferrari, "Danse" by Bernard Parmegiani, "Dahovi" by Ivo Malec, "L'Oiseu Chanteur" by Francois Bayle, "Klavierstuck VIII" by Karlheinz Stockhausen, and "Etude III" by Michel Philippot.
