Jorge AntunesMusica Eletronica (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mental Experience (Spain), 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the most important electro-acoustic music to come from the Brazilian scene in the 60s – recordings that are every bit as powerful as similar experiments from Europe at the time, particularly the revolutionary talents working in Paris! Jorge Antunes takes a big page from their book, and works with lots of electronic wave patterns, tape loops, and other effects – to create these sounds that often begin in more familiar postwar patterns from the academic world, but often move into much noisier territory – really pointing the way forward for the European underground of the post-punk generation. Works include "Valsa Sideral", "Contrapunctus Contra Contrapunctus", "Auto Retrato Sobre Paisaje Porteno", "Cinta Cita", and "Historia De Una Pueblo Por Nacer". LP, Vinyl record album

Daniela CasaArte Moderna ... LP
Flipper/Cacophonic (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
Modern art, but of the sonic variety – served up here by composer Daniela Casa on a rare sound library album, but with a free-thinking quality that rivals the best of the avant garde at the time! Unlike some more staid, academic record, there's no overarching concept here – no detailed notes that you need to read to "get" the music. Instead, Casa creates these short, dark little passages of sound – sometimes very abstract, occasionally tuneful – with elements that move between free jazz, atonal piano and woodwinds, offbeat strings, and even a bit of Fender Rhodes! The whole thing's a great reminder of just how much genius was bubbling up in Italy during the 70s – so much so that a record like this, which would have been worthy of release by Columbia or Deutsche Grammophon in bigger scenes, was only pressed up in small quantities by the Flipper music label. Titles include "Concetto Informale", "Dimensione Umana", "Prima Maniera", "Ricerca Della Materia", "Visione Surreale", and "Ricerca Cromatica". (Sound Library, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Pierre Henry/Michel ColombierMesse Pour Le Temps Present ... LP
Philips (France), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A legendary album – one that came from the more serious side of the French electronic scene of the 60s – but which has gone on to great fame in a number of different scenes – thanks to its mad blend of funk and electronics! There's grooves here you'll recognize from famous hip hop or club samples, and styles that clearly pave the way for later groups like Stereolab – but back in the 60s, this is where it all began – when electronic pioneer Pierre Henry decided to work with groovy French arranger Michel Colombier – on a batch of tracks for a ballet that were years ahead of their time! The styles here are wonderful – and in addition to the funkier cuts, there's also some spare electronic moments that link back towards some of Henry's more academic catalog – which makes for a great album as the funk bursts out of the spookier sounds. The set includes the full Messe Pour Le Temps Present – done with Colombier – plus parts of Le Voyage, Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir, and La Reine Verte. Titles include the famous "Psyche Rock", plus "Teen Tonic", "Jericho Jerk", "Too Fortiche", "Les Divinites Paisibles", "Mort", "Danse Du Jeune Homme", and "Rock Electronique". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner JepsonTotentanz (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1971/1972. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.00
Maybe some of the darkest music you'll ever hear to accompany a dance performance – created at the start of the 70s by Bay Area composer Warner Jepson – who uses both a collection of his own found sounds, and a Buchla 100 synthesizer! The approach is very electro-acoustic – as it's hard to distinguish where real sounds end and imagined ones begin – and despite the original intent of this music for a ballet performance, the whole thing's maybe more appropriate as a listening experience – especially the really wonderful sounds on side two, which remind us a lot of the best Dutch electronic experiments from the previous decade! LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition of 500 – on clear vinyl!)
