A legendary meeting of free jazz talents – and one of those records that completely changed the game during the 70s!

Cathy Berberian —
Pop Art ... LP Vinyl Ermitage, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ...
Cathy Berberian's a hell of a hip singer – one who could work in very avant modes, yet also get name-checked by Donald Fagan at the same time – thanks to the wide-ranging scope of her work! That scope is explored very fully here – as Berberian performs a range of material that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Really beautiful work from legendary jazz composer/musician Karl Berger – a set that's maybe more "serious" than some of his early material, and definitely fits the "music with" title of the set! Berger's playing piano here with a string sextet – bass, violin, two ... (Jazz, Out Sound)read moreCD

The original recording of Berio's dark vocal piece Sinfonia, and one of the pivotal moments when the Swingle Singers switched from doing jazzy versions of classical tunes to work that was more avant garde. Their high level of talent is apparent in this recording, and they give Berio's work a nice ... (Classical, Out Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A really moody little sound library record – heavy on analogue electronics, but used in ways that are nicely changed up from track to track – and quite different than the usual library album of this style! Some tracks are light and tuneful, but others are quite dark and experimental ... (Sound Library, Out Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic sounds from Tim Blake – an artist who previously worked with Gong, and sometimes worked with Hawkwind – but who really came into his own on this legendary album of electronics!

Beautiful sounds from Joanna Brouk – an artist who was sometimes lost amidst the new age scene of the 80s, but one who's got a much deeper, more intellectual approach overall! True, Brouk's music does have a certain meditative spirit – but she also was a student of Terry Riley and ... read moreCD
A completely amazing presentation of this very unusual piece by John Cage – one that plays with chance actions and sound even more than the original composition! The format is very unusual – producer Gino Robair (who's almost part of the performance himself) recorded pianist Tania Chen ... read moreCD
One of those landmark meetings of mighty talents that sounds even better on record than it does on paper – as the set somehow finds this really special space that's completely between all the best early 70s modes of both Terry Riley and John Cale! Cale was really coming into his own at the ... (Rock, Out Sound)read moreCD
Walter Carlos (now Wendy) performs electronic versions of many classics on the Moog.

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!
