Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from the team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – a record that's every bit as groundbreaking in its use of electronics, but even more playful overall! There's a slight touch of jazz at times – almost a Dick Hyman/Moon Gas sort of mode – as ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Morton Feldman/Samuel Beckett —
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
