Terry Riley/Don Cherry Duo
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy
A fantastic performance from a mystical duo who never cut any work together in the studio – but who are captured here in a rare radio performance in Germany from 1975! The setting is clearly organized by Terry Riley – who begins the album's 32 minute reading of "The Descending ... CD
Terry Riley/Krishna Bhatt Duo
Be! (Germany), 1984. New Copy 2CD
Unreleased work from Terry Riley – recorded in the WDR studios of German Radio, and a tremendous addition to his catalog! The first half of the music here features Riley on piano and electronics, in duet with Krishna Bhatt on sitar and tabla – in a mode that further unlocks the ... CD
Clear Sounds/Perfetta
Sonambient, 1971/1973. New Copy
The first new record in years from the legendary Sonambient label – the musical home of sculptor Harry Bertoia, whose creations were always made with their sonic properties in mind! The two pieces here are from Bertoia's tape archives – and both feature his unusual sound sculptures in ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), 1960s. New Copy
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, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Six Pianos/Keyboard Study #1
Film (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A fantastic recording of two minimalist classics – each done here in an unique sort of way! The reading of Steve Reich's "Six Pianos" features six different artists on the instrument – but each recorded by themselves, away from the others, using their own piano – which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A fantastic solo piano presentation of the music of Philip Glass – on a record that maybe even has a more haunting approach to the sounds than similar efforts by the composer himself! Icelandic pianist Vikingur Olafsson brings a slightly dynamic reading to some of the work – almost ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy
A great record for a baby – if you want to either mess that baby up for the rest of his life, or turn him on forever to the sound of electronic music! Billed as "an infant's friend in sound" these Soothing Sounds albums were issued in the early 60's as an electronic aid to mothers ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A beautiful larger concept work from Max Richter – based on the writings of Virginia Woolf, which are read at three short points in the set – to introduce the kind of subtle sonic spectrums that we've really come to love in Richter's music! The album mixes together Max's own sounds on ... CD
Song Of The Second Moon
Limelight/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Groundbreaking analogue electronics from the Dutch team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – two musicians who can be as playful as the tem of Perry & Kingsley, but also hit some of the darker modes of the academic circuit as well! The title is very well-put – as the record has a vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album
Other Sounds (UK), Early 50s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.99
Synthetic symphonics from electronic experimental ground breakers – with ground shaking rhythms, spacey soundscapes, fuzz, hums, echoes, loopy tape effects and more! Features Herbert Eimert, Bruno Maderna, Karel Goeyvaerts, Pierre Boulez and Eimert-Beyer. Titles include "Klangstudie ... CD

Antilles/Island (Germany), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderfully spaced-out album of electronic rock from the early days of Island Records! White Noise are a bit like Silver Apples – mixing trippy rock with odd electronic twists that are all very much in a heady late 60s sort of way. But the "rock" component of the album is a very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the lasting classics from Harry Partch – a really Moondog-like record that's put together from a host of unique instruments designed by Partch himself! Although a somewhat serious piece in presentation, there's a really organic feel going on here – lots of spare, almost eerie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Terry Riley's masterpiece, and an enduring classic that never grows old – and which never lapses into the hippy dippyness of some of his other work! The piece features 53 short musical passages, played in an order defined by the players, in minimal repetition, moving in and out of phase ... LP, Vinyl record album
Femenine
Frozen Reeds, 1974. New Copy
A fantastic piece of minimalist magic from Julius Eastman – a lesser-known composer of the 70s, but one we'd rank right up there with Steve Reich, given the beauty of this work! The CD features one long piece – "Femenine" – which builds slowly out of small passages of ... CD

Orphee
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy
Wonderfully weird sounds from David Virelles – and a record that's not entirely sure of its genre, but that's what makes it so great! The whole thing's almost like one of those cool indie releases we used to get from New Music Distribution Service back in the day – a set where ... LP, Vinyl record album
2062, 2017. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from William Basinksi – an artist with an approach that's like nobody else we can think of, and which makes these two tracks sound very much in keeping with his famous Disintegration Loops project! As with that masterpiece, the work here revolves around the use of tape loops ... LP, Vinyl record album
