John CageEmpty Words – Parte III ... CD CD format
Ampersand (Italy), 1977. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A compelling vocal performance from John Cage – recorded in Milan in 1977, and stretching for over 2 hours. The overall feeling is similar to some of the classic Dadaist vocal compositions from the early 20th century – as Cage's often-nonsense text unlocks new lyricism in familiar verbal passages. CD
(Includes original book and slipcase.)

Pierre HenryOdyssee (10CD set) ... CD CD format
Universal (France), 1960s/1982/Late 2000s. New Copy 10 CDs ... $44.99
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!

Charlotte MoormanCello Anthology Vol 1 – WBAI Concert New York – Sept 12th, 1964 ... CD CD format
Alga Marghen (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $19.99
A well-recorded concert performance from Fluxus legend Charlotte Moorman – done at Judson Hall in 1964, and featuring Moorman on a host of wonderfully diverse material! The music here really represents the forefront of 20th century composition for cello – almost a whole new medium, given the lack of solo cello works from previous centuries – which also makes it a rich tapestry for new ideas. Pieces include "Synergy", composed by Earle Brown for tape and cello; Giuseppe Chari's "Per Arco", which was written for tape and "reactions of a cellist"; "Plus Minus" by Stockhausen, which is done here with Nam June Paik and his Robot K-456; Terry Jennings' "Piece For Cello & Saxophone" with Jennings on soprano sax; "26' 1.1499" For A String Player" by John Cage; and "Duet II" by Toshi Ichiyanagi, with piano from Nam June Paik.

Stockhausen/Pierre Schaeffer/Pierre Henry/etcAdventures In Sound ... CD CD format
El (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $8.99
An amazing collection of experimental sounds from the European scene of the postwar years – key electronic and musique concrete recordings from some of the most important composers of the 20th Century! The package is a great introduction to this important stretch in music – and features recordings that are every bit as mindblowing now as they were over 50 years ago – really revolutionary sounds and tones that went onto have an undeniable impact on modern music, yet which still sound even more amazing here in the original source recordings. Includes "Poeme Electronique" by Edgard Varese, "Voile D'Orphee" by Pierre Henre, "Diamorphoses" and "Concret PH" by Iannis Xenakis, "Studie Nr 1" and "Gesang Der Junglinge" by Karlheinz Stockhausen, and "Cinq Etudes De Bruits" by Pierre Schaeffer.

New MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP LP format
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You".
